Blue Ridge Attractions

Blue Ridge Parkway is the most scenic National parkway and is known as “America’s Favorite Drive”. It runs for 469 miles mostly along the Blue Ridge mountains, a major mountain chain which is part of the Appalachian Mountains. The parkway starts from the north at Shenandoah National Park in Virginia and goes up to Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the Cherokee Indian Reservation in North Carolina. This scenic byway is especially beautiful during Fall and Spring. Check out Fall Photos of Blue Ridge Parkway here.
