Beyond the Drive

Parkway Attractions

The Blue Ridge Parkway is a scenic highway that connects Shenandoah National Park and the Skyline Drive in Virginia, with the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in North Carolina and Tennessee. Meandering curves and long-rolling vistas are the reward to the traveler who elects to exit the main highway for one that connects with its landscape instead of bypassing it. Located just a few miles from Olde Mill, The Parkway is a national treasure and one that should be experienced often.
