10Blue Ridge Parkway – North Carolina and Virginia

The Blue Ridge Parkway, often called “America’s Favorite Drive,” winds its way through the Appalachian Highlands, offering stunning vistas of rolling mountains and vibrant forests.

In the fall, the parkway comes alive with a riot of colors as hardwood trees like sugar maples and oaks display their brilliant foliage. Begin your journey in Asheville, North Carolina, and meander along the parkway’s 469 miles, stopping at overlooks, hiking trails, and charming mountain towns like Boone and Blowing Rock.
