My husband and I have to drive from Louiville KY to Charlottesville VA, but are considering detouring to Roanoke so we can drive through the Blue Ridge Mountains to get to Charlottesville. We would drive to Roanoke, spend the night and then take the scenic drive to Cville the following day. Is this a good starting point for a drive through the mountains? Is there a better place to detour to? Any recommendations are appreciated.
