The American Automotive Association – better known as AAA – and the Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) have supported travelers in their journeys for more than a century by offering their members
With the Blue Ridge Parkway Association promoting the people and places of America’s Favorite Drive for over seventy years, collaborating with AAA and CAA has been a natural partnership. Together, we are able to provide travelers all the information they need to plan the best road trips and vacations along the Blue Ridge Parkway region.
BRPA provides its Parkway publications for distribution by CAA and AAA counselors to their members, and has also produced the Blue Ridge Parkway FAM Tour for AAA/CAA counselors for 30 years.
The Parkway FAM Tour offers counselors a personal experience of the destinations in the great Parkway region and its communities. Fun and informative, the FAM tour provides the best experiences in local food and spirits, scenic beauty, museums, attractions, history and culture. Exploring the Parkway with BRPA’s engaging guides is so popular among counselors, the tour sells out a year in advance.
BRPA also produces the Blue Ridge Parkway Traveler, a seasonal newsletter full of all the best bets in Parkway events exclusively for AAA and CAA counselors. If you’re a AAA or CAA counselor who’d like to receive the Blue Ridge Parkway Traveler newsletter by email each Spring and Fall, please contact us.
If you’re a member of AAA or CAA and are planning a road trip to the Blue Ridge Parkway, you’ll find BRPA’s publications available for you at your local club office, including the Blue Ridge Parkway Travel Planner, Blue Ridge Parkway Map, and the Camping Blue Ridge Parkway brochure.
Many BRPA Businesses and Attractions participate in offering discounts to AAA and CAA members. Many BRPA Lodging Members are also Diamond Rated and AAA Approved.
