The AACA is coming to Wellsboro! … and thanks to our pals in Hershey, KellyPlanet is letting you know before anyone else. The club is basing their tours at the Penn Wells this summer between July 17th and July 21st 2017. We have the entire schedule right here, contact and lodging information is below. I paraphrased the original literature with more useful details since I LIVE in Wellsboro.
WATERFALLS, MOUNTAINS and VALLEYS VINTAGE TOUR
MODIFIED PROGRESSIVE TOUR – Wellsboro PA – Hammondsport, NY – Wellsboro, PA – Lock Haven, PA – Wellsboro, PA (sponsored by AACA Buzzard’s Breath Touring Region)
MONDAY July 17
Registration at the Penn Wells Hotel in downtown Wellsboro, you can’t miss it.
Socialize in the lobby or lounge and visit the family owned department store directly across the street (That would be Dunham’s). Grab a bite to eat at the famous Wellsboro Diner or several other good restaurants close by (like The Wellsboro House, Harland’s, or Timeless Destination).
Trailer parking is two blocks away from the hotel. Directly in front of the Fire Company Annex. (Take PA Rt6 East toward Mansfield for two blocks, it’s across from the Canyon Motel).
Early birds can visit the PA Grand Canyon ten miles away. (Go West on main street 660 then 362 or just follow 6 West). Wellsboro also has a Starbucks at Duhhams, a 24-hour Dunkin’ Donuts, Pizza Hut, McDonald’s and Subway. More useful details about WELLSBORO below (or click here)
TUESDAY July 18
Watkins Glen, NY (60 miles)
Coffee & danishes will be served upon arrival at the State Park. You can decide to Walk the Glen, take a boat ride or take a lap around Watkins Glen Race Track. Lunch will be catered in the Park around noon. Plan on leaving Watkins Glen around 3 PM. Travel 28 miles to Hammondsport, where we will spend the night.

We then return 40 miles back to The Penn Wells Hotel for lodging. Supper on your own with a Watermelon Social being held in the center of Wellsboro – surrounded by our cars. (The center of Wellsboro is called The Green, but it’s not really the geographic center. Go to the next light after the Penn Wells and it’s literally a whole block)
