How long Roanoke to DC on Blue Ridge Pkwy and Skyline Dr

Hi there, We will be travelling from Roanoke to DC in July and I am trying to work out how many hours the 'scenic route' would take. We are happy to drive for in excess of 6 hours but need to know so we can make dinner plans in DC. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Regards, Carmen

www.maps.google.com is quite helpful when considering such a route. It allows you to click and drag for using so you can adjust the standard route (I81 etc) to BRP and Skyline Dr. You can take the scenic route the entire way in about 8 hrs or enjoy the scenery part of the way and then take a more direct route. May want to be prepared with a BRP & VA map in case of partial closures. Enjoy your trip.
