Day 1

6:00 AM Depart Target Monroeville, Close to the GetGo

Rest / meal stops en route to Bristol, VA/TN. Bristol’s 'Main Street' is called State Street as it is divided by the state lines of Virginia and Tennessee and is highlighted as The Birthplace of Country Music! It was on State Street in 1927 that talent scout Ralph Peer made the very first commercially produced country music recordings with The Carter Family, Jimmie Rodgers, and others, for the Victor Talking Machine Company. The recordings known as The Bristol Sessions are recognized internationally as the ‘Big Bang’ of country music. Here you will have time on your own to explore main street shops and grab a bite for lunch. Afterwards, depart for Ashville, NC where we will check in to the Embassy Suites. Relax, freshen up, and grab a bite to eat at the hotel or nearby restaurants before our evening trip to Winter Lights at the North Carolina Arboretum. Winter Lights is a spectacular open-air walk-through light show made from over one million lights! Return to the hotel for the evening.
