We had a beautiful day to drive part of the Blue Ridge and all we wished for was that the leaves had turned just a bit more! Not that much traffic either - drove the loop out of Ashville. Lots of great lookouts to pull...More
Our drive on the parkway was all in Virginia. Would like to return to see it in North Carolina. We enjoyed many of the viewpoints along the way. We also saw some deer and guinea fowl. We enjoyed lunch at Peaks of Otter Lodge.

Drove the Parkway from North to South over 4 days. Loved it. North section was remarkably traffic free and whilst busier in the Southern half over the weekend there was never any hold up or difficulty finding a place to park at the frequent viewpoints....More
