America’s Scenic Byways are a celebration of the best that America has to offer. Featuring roadways throughout the United States, each is unique and offers a look into the past and present of the best of America.
Grand Vacation Club would like to offer you a look into one of the newest additions in the Scenic Byways program, the JTHG Scenic Byway. The JTHA stands for the Journey Through Hallowed Ground and travels 180 miles through some of the most historically important areas of the U.S. Inducted in 2009, the JTHG begins in Gettysburg and leads you on an adventure through history, time, and through beautiful towns, wineries and a host of other great cultural experiences.
What makes this particular Byway so special are its thousands of sites of historical importance to the United States. Over 10,000 listings on the National Register of Historic Places offer innumerable opportunities for you to stop off along the way including historic communities, 13 National Parks, hundreds of Native American and African American historical sites and sites dedicated to the French and Indian War, war of 1812 and Revolutionary War.
Other than a driving tour, this particular area caters to another type of travel as well with the first annual Bike Tour for Fall Foliage and Our Nation’s Heritage. Named the Fall Bike Classic, this bike tour takes cyclists on three separate routes through the Journey Through Hallowed Ground including family friendly routes of 10 or less miles, or longer more difficult routes of 35 or 50 miles for the professional bikers. Along the way participants have the opportunity to experience the beauty of this part of the U.S., our history and at the end, enjoy a celebration including hayrides and wine tasting. This tour begins this weekend on October 16th and is sponsored by Great Country Farms and Bluemont Vineyard.
