“Great Views in Fall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2007

Everywhere you turn, the colors of the season surround you.
Be sure to have a camera and stop at the stop offs when they come up, there are plenty of lookouts and short hikes and falls to see that are off the road but well worth the walk.
Bring your walking shoes, some of the shortest hikes can be wet and with leaves, slippery and or muddy but , not the whole hike, usually in spots around falls or rocks.
Get a local map for the Parkway drive and the sights along it. The towns are quaint and quiet with long roads and beautiful scenery so take advantage of some roads that go straight up to mountain side neighborhoods for fun.
Pack a lunch to take because you can end up staying at one or two lookouts or trails for hours without food or drink and pack lots of water for hikes.

“Most Peaceful Place in Virginia”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2003

I grew up visiting the Blue Ridge Mountains. I loved them so much that I would sing "Almost Heaven", in the shower. I lived in Arizona for 18 years, however, nothing is as serene and beautiful as taking a Sunday drive down the Parkway. It goes on for miles. The little stores off of the side of the Parkway are very inviting and the people have that southern hospitality that you just don't get anywhere else. I would recommend the Parkway to anyone. Especially those in love or wanting some peace and beauty.
