The Blue Ridge Parkway

The Blue Ridge Parkway celebrates its  75-year anniversary in 2010.

The Blue Ridge Parkway is one of the most impressive national parks in the nation.Referred to as “America’s Favorite Drive,” the Parkway is one of only 23 roads nationwide having earned All-American Road status. In addition to the sweeping vistas of never ending mountain tops, a closer view of the areas around the parkway will reveal dozens of rare and endangered plants and birds as well as wildlife like turkey,deer and even the occasional black bear. Recreational opportunities abound as well. Several parks have facilities for camping and picnicking, and hiking. The Blue Ridge Parkway is home to lots of two-wheeled transportation for both recreational riders and serious competitors. Road cycling has gained much popularity and the Parkway makes for a great ride.
