Three lodges along the Parkway provide opportunities for overnight accomodations from spring through the fall foliage season. Many Parkway travelers may find that getting off of the road and into the local towns and communities in the region is an enjoyable option for lodging as well. In addition to lodging, a seasonal restaurant at Mabry Mill (MP 176) offers local cuisine and the opportunity to extend your Parkway travels.
