Travel Inspiration

The Blue Ridge Parkway bills itself as "America's Favorite Drive"—it is, after all, one of the most visited spots in the National Park Service—and it's easy to see why. The road winds its way through 469 miles of Appalachian Highlands between North Carolina and Virginia before linking up with the Skyline Drive in Virginia's Shenandoah National Park.

Shenandoah National Park. Shenandoah's Blue Ridge Mountains are covered by hardwood forests that are home to tens of thousands of animals. The Skyline Drive and Appalachian Trail run the entire length of this narrow park that has more than 500 miles (800 km) of hiking trails along scenic overlooks and waterfalls of the Shenandoah River
