Here's a look at the itinerary...

Thursday, January 15th :: Costa Mesa to Joshua Tree National Park
[149 miles, approximately 3.5 hours]
On the first leg of our collective journey we'll travel east to Joshua Tree National Park where dramatic landscapes are framed by chaotic boulders piled in majestic formations and giant gangly Joshua trees stand guard throughout the high desert. Feel free to take a hike in and around the Disney-esque environs at Sheep Pass Campground, and watch a spectacular desert sunset. Then head back to camp to join your fellow VDubbers around a "communal" table and imbibe a sophisticated opening night nosh prepared especially in your honor! After a blazing campfire & marshmallow roast, cozy up snug as a bug in your VW Campmobile & canopy under the desert stars.

Friday, January 16th :: Joshua Tree National Park to Lake Havasu via Route 66
[175 miles, approximately 4 hours]
After partaking in a hearty breakfast we'll break camp and head out of Joshua Tree via Twentynine Palms to historic Route 66. We'll stop for photo ops at Amboy, home of the famous Roy's Motel & Cafe, and then Lake Havasu State Park and the Buses by the Bridge event.
Once we are all settled in at our special destination, feel free to explore all that Lake Havasu has to offer. Later, join our OPEN campfire & social for S'Mores and other grown up goodies.

[200 miles, approximately 4.5 hours]
Sunday morning we will wrap up this ode to the classics with a gingerbread pancake breakfast hosted by Vintage Surfari Wagons! After we're done fueling our furnaces, we'll break camp and head southwest. Our destination... Palm Springs and the seriously hip Ace Hotel where we will indulge in this Mid-Century Modern inspired desert oasis complete with its two big pools, vintage photo booth, communal fireplaces, organic-bohemian interior spaces, award-winning room service, free WiFi and gym.
The Ace is also the best place in Palm Springs to get a laid-back massage or natural treatment at the Feel Good Spa, by the pool or in your room.
We have a tradition of gathering together and spending our last evening sharing a meal in Palm Springs; no doubt this trip will wrap in similar fashion!

May 15, 2015 - May 17, 2015 - Southern Worthersee
Helen, Georgia
Facebook Twitter
The Wörthersee Tour in Reifnitz, Austria is the largest gathering of VAG enthusiasts in the world. For more than two decades, this charming lakeside village has hosted millions of enthusiasts, who come to appreciate the most innovative and trendsetting VWs and Audis in Europe. Wörthersee, as this event is most commonly known, derives its name from the beautiful lake that dominates this popular vacation area.

Our inspiration for Southern Wörthersee is to bring together cars and fans of these beloved marques in a truly authentic European atmosphere.

Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains on the Chattahoochee River, is the quaint Bavarian-themed town of Helen, Georgia. With its striking similarities to the Wörthersee region, we think you will agree, it’s a natural location for our stateside tribute to Wörthersee.

So please join us in beautiful Helen, Georgia as we celebrate our enthusiasm for these wonderful cars and the spirit of Wörthersee Tour.
