But it’s on its way and it won’t be long until the leaves start changing and the beauty of nature is in full swing. Where’s the best place to see the fall foliage? The Blue Ridge Parkway, which snakes its way along the Appalachian Mountains through Virginia and North Carolina. If you’ve been wanting to drive the parkway for a long time and you haven’t yet, will this be the year? Don’t let anything get in your way, not even housework. Hire a maid service in Winston Salem to keep your home clean while you’re gone. Then be sure to get out on the road and stop at these must-see places along the way.
Shenandoah National Park – Luray, VA
This is often the starting point for those in the north who are headed south. Skyline drive offers spectacular views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the brilliant colors of the changing leaves. Stop at Luray Caverns and experience miles of deep, dark caves and even a “stalacpipe organ.” Spend the night at Big Meadows Lodge with rustic-style rooms and cabins available.
Natural Bridge Park – Natural Bridge, VA
One of the most amazing natural wonders of the world, Natural Bridge was carved out long ago by Cedar Creek. The arch is 215 feet high with hiking trails that can take you right down to and underneath the bridge. This amazing site is definitely worth the time. Stop at the Roanoker Restaurant in Roanoke, VA before you cross into North Carolina for some southern home cooking. The Roanoker’s history dates back to World War II when it was first opened to feed soldiers who came into Roanoke by train.
Grandfather Mountain State Park – Banner Elk, NC
Known best for its mile-high swinging bridge, Grandfather Mountain should be your next stop on the Parkway. Great for hiking and climbing, the highest peak on the eastern escarpment of the Blue Ridge Mountains offers amazing views and scenic overlooks that beg to be visited in the fall when the leaves are at their brightest.
Biltmore Estate – Asheville NC
Your next must-stop in North Carolina is the Biltmore Estate. This amazing 250-room French-renaissance Chateau was designed for George Vanderbilt and his family and was completed in 1895.
