Plan Your Visit

The Blue Ridge Parkway is designed for slow-paced travel, 45 mph or less--a travel experience free from the commercial traffic and congestion of high-speed highways. Plan your visit to "America's Favorite Drive".

Download the free Blue Ridge Parkway Travel Planner for your smart phone. Access detailed information for the Parkway's four major regions (Ridge, Plateau, Highlands and Pisgah) as well as information for connecting regions including the Great Smoky Mountains National Park region (located near the Parkway's southern end) and the Shenandoah National Park region (near the Parkway's northern end).

Explore by region, activity, or by proximity to your location. Download the app to your phone to access content with or without a cell signal during your trip to visit the Blue Ridge Parkway area, or use it to plan your vacation before you leave home.
