Blue Ridge Parkway, Virginia

Blue Ridge Parkway, Virginia

Blue Ridge Parkway wanders through the Virginia countryside featuring a fair share of the local charms ... like an old mill pond with a working millwheel, as well as fascinating Civil War battle sites.

The lower half runs from I-77 to Cherokee, NC.

There you'll see the great Smokey Mountains of North Carolina, with countless overlooks to view the beautiful Smokies.

Below Ashville, NC are some of the greatest mountain views in the eastern U.S.

One of the best parts of this road is the fact that the only trucks ever encountered are the few service truck that service the two service station/restaurant areas along the parkway.

Also, the 45 mph limit makes lends itself to enjoying the surrounding scenery as safely as possible.
