Blue Ridge Parkway provides both stunning scenery and close-up looks at the natural and cultural history of the southern Appalachian mountains. The Parkway meanders for 469 miles and connects Shenandoah and Great Smoky Mountains National Parks, providing ample opportunities for stops at overlooks, picnic and camping facilities, trails, and wonderful cultural and natural areas. The Parkway’s newest visitor center, adjacent to park headquarters, is an essential stop for anyone in the Asheville area. Interactive exhibits emphasize the natural history, cultural history, and recreational opportunities in North Carolina’s Blue Ridge region.
