The Blue Ridge Parkway is a winding route that traverses some of America’s most picturesque scenery. The Parkway is America’s most visited National Park unit and when combined with Skyline Drive through Shenandoah National Park, also covered in detail on this map, a travel experience of over almost 600 miles is created. The Blue Ridge Parkway starts in the south at the foot of the Great Smoky Mountains and runs along the Blue Ridge through several National Forests from North Carolina and into Virginia. National Geographic’s Blue Ridge Parkway Destination Map strikes the perfect balance between map and guidebook and is ideal for a wide range of travelers. Destination Maps combine finely detailed maps with fascinating and practical travel information. The front side features a large-scale map of the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina and Virginia and Skyline Drive in Virginia, richly layered with travel information and beautiful photographs showcasing some of many ways travelers can experience the road known as “America’s Favorite Drive”. In addition to the easy-to-read map on the front, the reverse side includes regional descriptions, arts and culture finds, and visitor resources. Explore detailed insets of the Great Smoky and Shenandoah National Parks. Some of the extra features include:
