About this event
Western Maine Driving Tour
The Boston Chapter of the BMW CCA is hosting a scenic driving tour of Western Maine exploring the beauty of New England's last days of fall.
The Driving Tour will be held over the 2nd weekend of November with our base being the Jordan Hotel and Conference Center at Sunday River. We will have multiple routes of approximately 140 miles for each route, all of which will have many scenic overlooks, river crossings, wildlife opportunities, some side trips and more.
This driving tour is not a rally or timed event, more of a self paced driving tour through some spectacular scenery with the chance to stop and take in attractions along the route. The first one back to the Hotel will just have more time to enjoy the hotel’s amenities so take your time and explore.
