ARLINGTON, Va. - The Arlington Chamber of Commerce today announced its 2017 Cuba Getaway to send travelers on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure to explore Cuba, a country where time has stood still. From May 17-21, participants can travel to Cuba with business colleagues, family, and community members. The 2017 Cuba Getaway, conducted in partnership with Chamber Explorations and the Alexandria Chamber of Commerce, will be the second trip led by the Chamber to Cuba.

"The Arlington Chamber is thrilled to once again have the opportunity to send travelers on the Cuba Getaway," said Chamber President & CEO Kate Bates. "We look forward to continuing to provide our members and the Arlington community with unique opportunities like this trip to Cuba."
Cuba Getaway travelers will visit sights such as Ernest Hemingway's farm, the Museum of the Revolution, and a Havana cigar factory. Travelers will also have the opportunity to meet with the local Old Style Car Club owners and learn why Havana's streets are filled with vintage American automobiles and what it takes to keep them on the road.
