The Blue Ridge Parkway is a 469-mile route that winds through the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia and North Carolina, and is regarded as one of the best places in the world to experience stunning fall colors.

The iconic route has earned the nickname of being “America’s Favorite Drive” and connects the Shenandoah National Park in Virginia with the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in North Carolina.

“Expect a slow ride; drivers take their time to enjoy the views. Stop at the Visitor Center to use an interactive wall map and decide what to explore. Hear Appalachian or bluegrass at the Blue Ridge Music Center from June to October; hike trails past waterfalls and wildflowers; or fish a river or stream for trout or bass.”
