Things To Know Before You Come
Planning ahead is always a good idea when traveling, but along the Parkway you can count on the unexpected things that draw your attention or take a little more of your time. Be flexible, slow down, and enjoy what comes your way as you travel. Most Parkway facilities will be open by May 9th with the complete opening schedule offering more details. Our newspaper, The Parkway Milepost and other brochures are also available to help in planning your trip.
Did You Know?
There are twenty six tunnels on the Blue Ridge Parkway, but only one in Virginia. This is primarily because the North Carolina mountains are more rugged than those in Virginia.
