After talking about driving on the Blue Ridge Parkway for several years we finally made the drive during peak fall foliage. We drove the entire distance in 3 days and savored every moment. There are so many opportunities to take pictures due to the abundant pull offs. The maximum speed is 45 mph and is plenty fast as you want... More

What an amazing experience. We drove the entire parkway, starting in Cherokee and went to Waynesboro. We traveled with 2 dogs and made the trip in 4 days from leaving home to getting back to Ky. I do not have words to describe our amazing experience, except if you have the opportunity, this is a place that has to be... More

It would be a shame for one to live in this beautiful country and to never see the Blue Ridge Mountains. It would be a joy for anyone from another country, too, to take a leisurely drive through the winding, pristine old forest-lined highway, stopping to view the layers of blue mountains hanging from the sky in the distance like...

Driving the Blue Ridge Parkway is always a photographer's treat. The scenery is beautiful, and the availability of pullouts is usually great for scenic views and photography.

Joined at Roanoke. Speed limit although slow (needs to be) this enabled us to look at the magnificent views, all you can see in the distance are trees and the blue mountains. There are plenty of pull ins to stop some with cafes (going in the Fall meant some places were closed) but there are eating places within a couple... More

Well much of the foliage had fallen early up on the mountain top, but in the lower areas it was just turning.

There is nothing like driving the Blue Ridge Parkway this time of year with the leaves changing. A spectacular array of vivid colors you just have to see. Stop and take pictures and experience amazing views of the mountains as well.
