Blue Ridge Parkway, North Carolina: 22 reviews and 38 photos
The Blue Ridge Parkway starts near Cherokee North Carolina and ends in Fort Royal , Virginia. It is a scenic highway through the mountains. If you start driving it, don't expect to get anywhere fast, since you will probably stop every few miles and take pictures!!
Some places to visit from the Parkway:
Mount Mitchell, the highest mountain in North Carolina. It has a tower you can climb on the top.
Grandfather Mountain ( near Boone) has a nice hiking trail to the top , complete with ladders you have to climb and ropes to hold on to. Grandfather Mountain also has Scottish Highland Games each year in July and the Mile High bridge ( if you are not afraid of heights!)
Linville Viaduct: a very cool bridge , if you are interested in engineering. There is also a nice trail to a waterfall.
Cherokee at the southern end of the Parkway is a touristy town with lots of Cherokee Indian souvenirs , Powwows, and a Cherokee museum.
