Stories from the Parkway

August 12, 2019
The Blue Ridge Parkway, the beautiful drive that over 14 million people visited in 2018, requires a lot of people to keep running, as you could imagine. A key piece to this is volunteers - unpaid and serving out of love for the Parkway.

Should Be on Everyone’s Bucket List

Everyone should experience a drive on The Blue Ridge Parkway. The Parkway runs from Virginia all the way to Cherokee, North Carolina. Beautiful scenery all the way. Overlooks and amazing vistas the whole way. No big trucks are allowed on the Parkway and the speed limit is 45. This allows you to take in all the amazing sights that creation has to offer. Of course, there are exits all along the way to take in the art, culture, and crafts of the Appalachian and Smokey Mountains.
