The scenery and attractions and just about everything is really great on this parkway...there are arresting views and great places for pictures and fun...
If you can schedule a trip through the parkway during Peak Season it is well worth it. One of Mother Nature's many splendors, this time of year is beautiful site to behold. The trees look as if someone painted them in deep colors or red, gold, orange, and yellow. As the leaves fall and the trees prepare for their winter... More
We took a segment of the Parkway in western NC that was absolutely gorgeous, very little traffic, many places to stop to hike or admire a view, which we did.

If you've never driven slowly through the Fall beauty of the Blue Ridge mountains, don't wait another year. The most Magnificent Artist of Them All paints his creation in colors that must be seen to be believed.
A long time ago, I briefly visited the Blue Ridge mountains. Last week I drove over and around them on the Blue Ridge Parkway for a week. I almost crashed the car daily - it's hard to drive and look at the breathtaking views at the same time. We pulled over at almost every lookout. Even though the majority of... More
