Beautiful scenery, especially in the spring and the fall. And the best way to see it – in our opinion - is by driving the Blue Ridge Parkway. We have driven the western part from Cherokee to Little Switzerland several times and it has always been beautiful.

One of the most beautiful drives anywhere!! But........motorhomes BEWARE !! The overall height of my motorhome is only 12 feet, but my rooftop A/C units really took a beating from the low hanging branches over the roadway.

It was very stunning through out the drive. All lookouts are gorgeous and very beautiful. Very relaxing to hike around small streams of water and enjoying nature.

This is a definite "must" if you're even remotely close.…

A drive through these massive mountains is a must. Take a picnic because there are lots of pull overs for scenery shots & picnics! Call is awesome, but spring flowering in the mountains is very pretty also.
