I have cruised the Parkway, many times. Have always been into, sports cars, and I highly advise you travel this road, in one. The views are wonderful. The twists, the bends, and the roar, of a dual exhaust. It is so pretty in the spring,...More

It is free to drive the Blue Ridge Parkway and there are many interesting stops along the long drive between several Eastern States...Pay attention to the speed limit and keep your eyes open for people on motorcycles and bikes...Everyone enjoys the beauty along this drive...

Make all of your reservations for hotels as soon as possible, this will be a peak time for viewing fall colors and you may not be able to find a room. Midweek is a better time to see anything in the USA as weekends are when everyone gets out to see the sights and do things as a family unit. As to how far you can get each day, base that on where you can get a reservation for the night. Our formula is to divided the mileage by the number of days were are going to be on the road then find a good hotel near that days end. Be sure to check with the Parkway's website or call them to find out what closures there are or will be on the parkway.
