America's Favorite Road Trip Vacation: Driving the Blue Ridge Parkway

Tis' the summer season for road trips and you may as well enjoy America's Favorite Road Trip Vacation - driving the Blue Ridge Parkway from Virginia to North Carolina.


This driving route across the southern U.S. covers 470 scenic miles from Shenandoah National Park in Virginia to North Carolina and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.


Besides the good old southern hospitality, there are so many things to see and do along the Blue Ridge Parkway including enjoying the area's many hiking trails, camping, wildlife and nature viewing, fishing, swimming, motorcycle riding, galleries, museums, historic places, and attractions like Chimney Rock, Bristol Caverns and Mystery Hill, to only name a few.


One of the most beautiful times to consider the Blue Ridge Parkway drive is during the fall when the foliage has turned to bright oranges, yellows, and coppers as nature is about to give way to winter.  It's the perfect opportunity to enjoy all the area has to offer plus the color kaleidoscope makes for wonderful photographic opportunities.  


Planning your vacation to the Blue Ridge Parkway has never been easier than by using the maps, travel tips and travel tools provided on the Blue Ridge Parkway tourism website.  For more information, visit Blue Ridge Parkway.
