One of the places we want to visit in the future. Can someone give me a feedback. This is what I have read.
The Blue Ridge Parkway is history waiting to be discovered!
Although the Blue Ridge Parkway is seen primarily as a scenic byway with plenty of natural attractions, it is also a cross-section of Appalachian mountain history. Stretching almost 500 miles along the crest of the Blue Ridge mountains through North Carolina and Virginia, it encompasses some of the oldest settlements of both pre-historic and early European settlement. It is possible to trace much of the 200-year-plus history of Appalachian culture simply by keeping your eyes open and attuned to what remnants are left.
All along the Parkway are overlook signs, visitor center exhibits, restored historic structures, and developed areas alerting you to points of particular interest. For a complete listing of the Parkway's historic attractions, contact the areas you will be visiting.
The drive is designed as a drive-awhile and stop-awhile experience, so please don't be in a hurry. In Reading this, it makes us all the more determined to visit.
