This past holiday weekend we were on the road driving along the Blue Ridge Parkway and Skyline Drive. As you can see, the trees were just starting to show color so there is still time to view the fall foliage in the Smokies and Blue Ridge Mountains.
Here are links to inns in the North Carolina Mountain area and Virginia’s Blue Ridge and Shenandoah areas.
This is a beautiful area where you will also find many wonderful restaurants and wineries. A favorite of ours is the Chateau Morrisette, which is one of the very few wineries that serves lunch and dinner. The winery is located at Milepost 171-5 on the Blue Ridge Parkway and is a great stop on the drive. The restaurant is open the entire month of October as well as other months during the year. Check the website for more info; I recommend reservations during peak seasons.
Enjoy the drive! Rose
