Blue Ridge Parkway - http://www.nps.gov/blri
A trip down the Blue Ridge Parkway provides stunning, long range vistas and close-up looks at the natural and cultural history of the southern Appalachian mountains. The Parkway is designed as a drive-awhile and stop-awhile experience, so please don't be in a hurry. The driving here is slow paced and relaxing, rewarding the traveler with an intimate look at our southern Appalachian Mountains.
Sometimes called "America's Favorite Drive," the Parkway meanders for 469 miles between Shenandoah and Great Smoky Mountains National Parks, providing numerous opportunities for enjoying overlooks, picnic and camping facilities, trails, historic sites and the natural wonders of our region.
