The view from the Skyline Parkway is so amazing - you can't really believe it if you haven't been there, and even then you are awed by the beauty and majesty!

Driving along the parkway you can see Duluth from above. Fall colors are beautiful. It is fun to imagine people taking horse drawn carriage rides along it in the past.

This roadway extends along the ridge above Duluth, and affords views of the lake and forested hills. We visited in mid-Autumn, and the leaves were a riot of color. Worth the drive.

Finding the parkway can be a bit of a challenge leaving Duluth. There is a lot of construction and detours. Once we were on our way, we passed some beautiful neighborhoods and exceptional views of Duluth and Lake Superior. There are some overlooks you can...More

My husband did his daily morning run up and back. We went back two evenings to enjoy the views before dark. It did not disappoint if you don't mind the local teens that seem to hang out each night.

Nice drive and views. And that's about it. Since its FREE what do you have to lose? Make it a part of your visit, don't drive all the way to Duluth to see just this.

How can you not enjoy old mansions and homes overlooking largest inland lake in America. Steep hills that would not be fun in winter.

A beautiful plus, in Duluth. Old, old legends are about the lands and waters created by Great Spirits. As you drive along the Parkway, as you climb or descend, take a look at what Man (mankind) can never create! Viewing a Sunrise or Sunset can...More

Which Route - Washington to Gatlinburg?? (32 Replies)
So we are a family of 2 Adults + 2 kids (aged 6 & 9) and we arrive in Washington on July 2nd at about 17.15 after a long-haul flight. We will collect our rental car upon arrival in Regan Airport. We don't want to book accommodation for the first night as we don't know how far we will get but we want to have a tentative plan and some options narrowed down.(ie have an idea of a couple of hotels along the route). If we are totally shattered after our flight or if it gets delayed we may...More

You're arriving two days before our national Independence Day holiday on July 4. This is often a busy time for travelling, so I'd recommend making reservations.
