Blue Ridge Parkway

Asheville, North Carolina

A ride on the Blue Ridge Parkway is a single-road adventure through the heart of America. The 469-mile thoroughfare stretches from Great Smoky Mountains National Park to Shenandoah National Park, on the way traversing hiking trails, camp sites and striking views of golden foliage. Our favorite feature of the drive? The Linn Cove Viaduct, a suspended strip of North Carolina highway that makes drivers feel as though they’re floating above the trees as they snake around the curve of a mountain. Just try to keep your eyes on the road.
