Default Annual Vettes and Jets, Pensacola, Florida

Less than a week before our Annual Vettes and Jets Show in Pensacola, Florida!!! The weather is supposed to be Sunny, High 80 degrees and beautiful. So, if you haven't make plans to attend our Show, please do so now!!


Come One, Come All!! to the Annual Miracle Strip Corvette's "VETTES AND JETS" all Corvette Car Show. 14 April 2012 beginning at 10am until 2pm. This Show is getting bigger and better each year. Last year over 182 Corvettes from as far away as Memphis, TN; Central Arkansas; Tampa, Fl; Orlando, FL; Atlanta, GA; New Orleans, LA; Jacksonville, FL and all parts in-between!! If you didn't make it last year, plan on attending this year. Top 30 Trophies; Valve Cover Racing (1st, 2nd and 3rd Place Trophies); beautiful weather; white sandy beaches; and of course, the Naval Aviation Museum who just opened another section of the building that actually doubles the size of the Museum. The Museum entrance is free and they only take donations. There is also an IMAX Theater in the Museum. Food and drink is also available at the Museum. You can make a picture with one of the Blue Angel Jets usually located in the Parking Lot behind the Museum. Come on Down and enjoy! Make it a weekend and see some of the fine shopping, food and the beaches in the area!! Some of the proceeds of this Show go to the Naval Aviation Museum as they operate only on donations!! If you have any questions, please email: leahsc6@bellsouth.net or yn1bennett@att.net. Please see our Website for more information at www.miraclestripcorvetteclub.org.:woohoo:

They do not do a host hotel for this show, when we have gone to this one we drive up and drive back day of show, not a bad ride at all.

Their show in September by the beach, they have the Hampton Inn in Pensacola as the host hotel every year.

Travel inn on Pensacola is where some are staying. It is not a fancy hotel. but it is on the Beach and great weather. We got a price of $89 a night. I will get back with the phone # this week when I get My computer up at home and not have to go to a public one.
The travel inn isthe old comfort inn, no frills.


There are plenty of other hotels on the beach , but they get pricy due to its "the beach" and spring break.
I have booked the Hampton inn for the Host Hotel again for the Vettes At the Beach. I think the rate is 129/119 but I have to recover the info off my dead computer . (Hopefully tomorrow)

If your like me, I make a week out of it and stay in a Condo at Perdido Keys, FL. Just a short drive the the base. Rates range from 85.00 to 115.00 a night. Not to send a plug out to the Condo, but I have stayed at the Grand Carribbean. Not right on the beach but @ 200 yard from the beach. You can see the it from your Balcony. Gated parking and 2 heated pools as well. Just a thought if anyone is interested.

Default Hi

The Marriott (Chase &Bayfront pky) by McGuiers is a good place, plus I would highly recommend Mc Guiers for a meal while in town . Just go early by 4, or,... you will have an hour wait or longer. If you want to stay at the beach there is a "old "comfort inn now travel inn, no frills !!! But great staff and pritty clean. They gave us a rate of $89. a night for the weekend of this show. Which is DIRT CHEEP for the beach at spring break season. We dont have host hotel or friday night fun for this show. All that is the BIG VETTES AT THE BEACH in sept !
