Where to Go: Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance
Pebble Beach, California (nearby Best Western hotels)
Once a year, celebrities, the wealthy and car enthusiasts come together on the eighteenth fairway of the Pebble Beach Golf Links for one of the most stylish events to hit the American automotive world -- the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. So whether you go to be seen in your largest hat and brightest golf wear, or if you want to drool over some of the greatest designs in automotive history including those of Alfa Romeo, Pierce-Arrow and Jaguar, the Pebble Beach Concours is the summer roadtrip for you.
How to Get There: 2010 Porsche Panamera
Even at an event that attracts some of the rarest vehicles in the world -- many valued at seven or even eight figures -- the 2010 Porsche Panamera is sure to turn some heads this year. It's a controversial car with a controversial shape, but it's also the best-selling Porsche in the U.S. Along the way you might not be as driven to take the twisty detours you'd never pass up in a 911, but you'll definitely be more refreshed when you pull up to the valet stand at The Lodge at Pebble Beach.
