“Nice but Crowded”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2011

Skyline is a nice drive especially with the fall colors. We found it more crowded and has less scenic stops than the Blue Ridge Parkway. There are a couple of nice overlooks. If you are heading south down the Skyline, you should find the BRP more interesting.

“Nice views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2011

Nice views but sometimes hard to know where to go to stay on parkway. Also often times there is construction that prevents driving the entire length unbroken

“Nice, but not worth going way out of your way.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2011

For views of the city and shoreline, I'd recommend Enger Tower over this. Of course, you have to take part of Skyline Parkway to get there so you'll be on it anyway. We drove nearly the entire length of Skyline Parkway and while it was pleasant, took a very long time for not many views. It was very well marked which is good as it took many twists and turns.
