About this event


It's North Loop Tour Time!

Come join the 2021 North Loop Tour to Somewhere highlighting several interesting roads “up north” in addition to some classic rural northwest Washington scenery.  

Note:  due to uncertainty about coronavirus restrictions this tour could be modified or cancelled.

We start at the Safeway on Olympic Place in Arlington and stop in Concrete for lunch at the Lonestar Restaurant and Waterin' Hole.  After more loops (can you count them all?) we finish at Evelyn's Tavern in Clear Lake.  During the day you’ll have a chance to experience some roads twice (dead-end turnarounds), practice speed drills at the morning rest stop (single facility – thus small groups), enjoy a bountiful lunch, go around in more circles, and finish up at Evelyn's - the classic road house along Rt 9 in Clear Lake. 

Even with great scenery the focus of this tour is on the driving experience and small-group camaraderie - so the tour is limited in size and scope.   With the move to October we hope to avoid some of the early Spring weather challenges from past years (including a rare tour cancellation) and, if we're lucky, experience some gorgeous fall color as well.

Note:  This tour is limited to 40 cars with no "car creep" at the end to add more cars, so sign up early if y ou want to go!!
