Oh!! that Blue Ridge Parkway

Put it on your bucket list and when you stop in Floyd County, mile marker 165 or 174 plan a stay at
Mountain Song Inn your views will just continue.



We've Added The Blue Ridge Parkway To Our Collection of Essential Park Guides

The Blue Ridge Parkway is a globally recognized icon of the American landscape.
Stretches of road elsewhere in the United States may indeed be spectacular, but nothing matches this manicured, uniquely uncommercialized, half a thousand mile thoroughfare through the lofty heart of America’s first frontier.
A Parkway vacation—tackling the entire route along the spine of the Southern Appalachians, from the southern end of Shenandoah National Park in Virginia to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in North Carolina—is the quintessential experience of the Eastern mountains.
The winding, reduced-speed limit road is a relaxed motor trail among the airy ridges and mountaintops of Eastern America’s highest mountains. It’s an Appalachian Trail for cars, a singular experience, a dazzling juncture of earth and sky. The Parkway is a rarity—a road almost continually at the crest—a truly skyline traverse.
