    Welcome to:

    @TeslaRoadTrip 2016 - "The Future Meets the Past" - May 13-15th - Kingsmill Resort - Williamsburg, VA



    @TeslaRoadTrip 2016, our third annual East Coast Tesla gathering is well into the planning stages! Last year, over 60 Teslas came to Salisbury & Ocean City, MD from as far away as Oklahoma, Canada, Florida and Massachusetts for "Reach the Beach". This year we are turning things up a notch by hosting the event at the beautiful Kingsmill Resort in Williamsburg, VA. The event will be especially family friendly with on-site amenities such as Indoor/Outdoor pools, a Gym, a Private Beach and Busch Gardens a short shuttle ride away. Golfing and a Spa are also located on the Resort and available to guests at an additional cost.

    Model S, X and Roadster owners will get together, talk about all things Tesla, take a scenic drive down Colonial Parkway and have some fun in Williamsburg and Yorktown. We plan to have a casual on-site reception Friday night the 13th for people that decide to arrive early and a Reception/Dinner Saturday night - also on the property. Plenty of charging will be available on-site to ensure worry-free driving for all attendees.

    The same team that put together last year’s event (along with a few new members) are currently hard at work hashing out the details to make this event both fun and memorable. We plan to have more details, registration for the event as well as a link to reserve your rooms at the resort available soon.

    We have an exciting & busy weekend planned, so plan to arrive Friday evening, May 13th if you can!

    We look forward to seeing you May 13-15th in Williamsburg, VA for @TeslaRoadTrip 2016 - "The Future Meets the Past”

    Aaron

    LOVE that you chose Kingsmill! Great resort.

    Lots to do in Williamsburg for kids, adults, families, singles: Busch Gardens, Colonial Williamsburg, Yorktown. Don't think Water Country open yet then. Great wolf lodge for the littlest kids. And until March 15, you can buy a 2 for 1 fun card to Busch Gardens that lets you in to both parks for the cost of 1 ($77) all season long. We get it every year.

    Thanks for all you're doing, Aaron and TRT2016 crew! Hoping we can make it this year. Await instructions for registration/ reservations. If I can help (being VA resident and all), please let me know.

    Kingsmill will be expanding their on-site charging for our event to handle the number of cars ;-)

    Btw- there were only two hotels with charging availability in Wmsbg when we were there last fall. And I truly hoped when I saw your post last night that you were looking at Kingsmill. We stayed at the other one as KM was full. You guys chose WISELY. :) Excited!

    Kingsmill is a nice resort and a def upgrade over the Hampton Inn! I used to write a restaurant review for the law school paper in Williamsburg and would be happy to help you guys if you need it -- I still live a short drive away.

    I'll plan to be there. May 15 is the first anniversary of my Model S, what a great way to celebrate her birthday.
