These sites were held for Airstream Club members until March 1. We realize that you will be reading this later, but don’t hesitate to try to reserve a site even then - we want everyone to join the 60th International!

Places to Visit in Escanaba One of the places that you may want to check out in Escanaba, right downtown, is Leigh’s Garden Winery. Rumor has it that one of their new wines will be called Yooper Juice.
The write-up claims it to be a sweet rose’. But you can make the call!

Leigh’s Garden has an art deco style back bar, with walls and ceiling covered with 1895 tin squares, located at: 904 Ludington Street. (www.leighsgarden.com)

If you are ready to have someone else make your breakfast or lunch, you may want to head down to 1307 Ludington Street.  The Applewood Eatery & Espresso Bar is owned by Macy Neumeir. Included in the menu is French Toast, made from our very own Trenary Toast. So, if you can’t get away to visit the Trenary Toast shop in Trenary, you can have a taste of it at the Applewood (Phone: 906 786-6477)

Tours of the Upper Peninsula Your 2017 Escanaba International Chairpersons are busily making plans for your enjoyment. We can confirm that a very experienced, knowledgeable tour guide has been contacted
to provide your Upper Peninsula day-tour arrangements. In 2013, he led a tour for the Wisconsin Airstream Unit and it was a sellout.

One of Your Choices For Entertainment Come dance the night away with your WBCCI friends at Club Airstream! This D.J. party will include your favorite songs from the 50’s & 60’s, classic rock, country, disco and contemporary music. Young and old alike are welcome - this is an all-ages event that’s sure to be fun for everyone. The D.J. will be taking your requests. Please plan to attend on Thursday, July 27, 8:00 P.M., immediately after the evening program. Look for more details in the official Escanaba rally program.
There’s gonna be a lot of fun happening at the 60th International Rally!

P. S. – Laundromats The fact that there was only one laundromat in Lewisburg was an inconvenience with hundreds of Airstreamers in town. That won’t be a problem at Escanaba, where there are three, the Sunshine Laundromat, the Maytag Home Style Laundry and Glo Tanning Studio and Laundromat. Early workers note, the Maytag Home Style Laundry, a little over a mile from the fairgrounds, even offers a free wash after 12 loads.
