Blueridge Parkway is one of America’s best-kept secrets. The slow-paced and relaxing road winds through the Appalachian Highlands and offers spectacular panoramas of rugged mountains and pastoral landscapes.

The National Scenic Byway takes you from the Shenandoah National Park through the Great Smoky Mountains, connecting Virginia with North-Carolina. Driving this road you are surrounded by natural beauty throughout the whole way. With its sweeping views of awe-inspiring green landscapes and dreamy sunsets, this road offers a unique journey incomparable to any other road trip in the world. Keep and eye out for the black bear, deer, lynx and other protected wildlife that reside in this wonderful unspoilt nature.

Please note: This road can be closed due to weather conditions, so plan you trip ahead. Although every season offers its own uniqueness our favorite time to drive this route is in autumn during Indian summer, when leafs of the trees turn orange, yellow and red.
