Unfortunately, the weekend of the Beach Music Cruise-In (May 10 - 12) is already sold out at our hotel of choice. (I suspect that would be the case with other hotels for the number of rooms we need. Hopefully, we can find some other special activities in the area for the weekend of choice!)
I have communtiacted with the group sales person at the Best Western Plus in Virginia Beach. She is the same person we used for EX 5. The procedure would be the same. She will block off rooms for us, provide instructions on how to reserve your room using the group rate, and then you will make the reservation yourself. (You are also welcome to make your own reservation without using the group rate - if you find a better deal. And, of course you are welcome to stay somewhere else and meet up with us as you desire. This is all very informal!)
There are Ocean Front rooms - as well as another section across the street with Non-Ocean Front rooms. Please see rates below.
If flying - you would fly into Norfolk.
They are sold out on 6/6-10. (As mentioned above they are also sold out for The Beach Music weekend - May 10 - 12.)
These are the choices through mid June - after that rates would climb even more:
1. May 2-6: Oceanfront $107wkday, $149wkend & Non-ocean $74wkday, $89wkend
2. May 16-20: Oceanfront $113wkday, $139wkend & Non-oceanfront $72wkday & $85wkend (This is the weekend we went last time - the weekend before Memorial Day.)
3. June 13-17: Oceanfront $139wkday, $209wkend & Non-Oceanfront $113wkday, $149wkend
* Each person determines how long they want to stay. Normally we do a special planned group activity during the weekend. However, some folks add days to the front or end of this trip.
As some have mentioned waiting until June may mean better weather - but that comes at an increased cost.
Please vote by Tuesday, January 8th so that we can nail down this block of rooms before more weekends become sold out! Thanks!
