Jefferson one-nighter

Lone Star BMW Riders
an overnight ride to 
Jefferson, Texas
(staying in Marshall)

This will be a "one-nighter" ride to Jefferson for lunch and some looking around the historic town.  There are a lot of historic buildings, shopping, and ice cream.
An alternative to touring the town would be to take a boat tour around Caddo Lake. 
Later in the afternoon, we will head towards our hotel in Marshall. There will be a group dinner in Marshall Saturday night.
Sunday we will head back home.

Trip to Jefferson: 174 miles
Trip home: 168 miles

The planned hotel in Marshall is:
The Hampton Inn
5100 S. East End Blvd
Marshall, TX 75672
Hampton Inn Marshall
Check in: 6/12
Check out: 6/13

If you want to take the Caddo Lake Boat tour, check out Cap't Ron's Swamp tours.  They start about 20 minutes from Jefferson and the cost is $25 ($20 for seniors). The tour is about 70 minutes long.

Capt Ron's Swamp tour

I would recommend the 4:00 tour to give you time after lunch to get there and also be able to get to Marshall in time for dinner.
