    Have a new Hellcat and did not get a vacation in 2015 so making some very early plans for the summer of 2016 and need some ideas / help.
    I would like to plan a vacation around a large Mopar / Hellcat event if possible. Also considering the SRT track experience next summer so I may base my trip around that.
    Im on the coast in South Carolina so kinda want to keep my vacation on this side of the Country but welcome any ideas you folks may have.
    I am thinking I may take 7-14 days to enjoy the family and the Hellcat.
    I love the NC mountains and had thought about this Mopar & Hawgs event but my kids don't get out of school until the following week. Mopar Car Show - Maggie Valley Rallys
    I welcome any thoughts of any Mopar events or just good driving vacation ideas you enjoy.

    one of the best Mopar ones to do, Carlisle in PA, its usually the 2nd weekend of July. I use to go there ALL the time, but haven't been able to lately. But def a good choice

    The hot rod power tour.
    You will have a blast and get to meet a lot of nice people along the way. I don't think that they have picked the route yet but it is definitely worth going on.

    Thats a great idea, I need to also take the kids to Washington at some point so that may be a great road trip as it looks like I will be driving right by D.C. to get to PA. Looks like about a 8- 9 hr drive each way, thats about my limit but looks like I can make many cool stops along the way.
    Will research this some more.
    Thanks

    Living on the Gulf Coast everyday is Summer for us.
    Driving down Hwy 90 from south Louisiana to Mobile, Alabama is a great cruise.
    Then driving down Hwy 98 thru Flordia down to 30A is priceless!!!

    Not sure how far it is from you, but if you do the drive north, try to hit the Blue Ridge Parkway, REALLY good drive, especially in a Hellcat :)

    I did that in my WRX I had a few years back and on my Harley many years back ( before children ) ... That would be nice in the Cat and have never done the north end of the Blue Ridge Parkway.
    Thanks!

    The Dream Cruise. It is a little far, but nothing like a miles long rolling car show
