Discover Blue Ridge Parkway

This summer, plan a motorhome camping trip to Blue Ridge Parkway, considered America’s longest linear park that runs through the two states of North Carolina and Virginia. Referred to as ‘America’s Favorite Drive,’ Blue Ridge Parkway is an All-American Road and National Parkway that is known for its stunning scenic beauty. Extending over 469 miles, the parkway runs from north to south, passing through Asheville and Boone in North Carolina, and three major cities in Virginia - Waynesboro, Roanoke, and Galax. Following the ridge of the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains for most of the parkway, the recreational motor road is a sheer delight for outdoor enthusiasts. The parkway also connects the Shenandoah National Park in Virginia on the northern end, and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park on its southern end. 

Renting an RV is a convenient way of getting around, especially if you want to traverse the entire length of the parkway; you’ll find a range of affordable RV rentals in Buncombe County.
