Fall on the Blue Ridge Parkway
October 16-19, 2017 / 4 days and 3 nights
We will make our way to lovely Boone, North Carolina for this trip and it will serve as our home for three nights. Each day out, we will make our way to nearby towns to take in all the sites of the season. Mid-October is usually ablaze with color, so we hope to soak it all in! While there, we will enjoy a visit to the charming town of Blowing Rock. There is a classic tale of an Indian princess at this unique geological formation. We’ll visit the park, and take in the sweeping views of the Blue Ridge Mountains that surround us. You’ll have some shopping time in town as well. We will also visit the community of West Jefferson and learn about makes their Ashe County cheese so famous. You are welcome to sample and purchase some as well. This town is also the home of the Frescos painted in two of the Episcopal churches there. They are lovely to see. Another stop will be made in the college town of Boone, which is home to a Mast General Store. We will make some time to shop local and we will have a delicious family style dinner at the nearby Daniel Boone Inn. This dinner will be bountiful for all! Traveling along the Parkway, we will find ourselves to the Moses Cone Memorial Park, which houses the Parkway Craft Center. It’s a beautiful location with panoramic views of the mountains; all housed in a historic white-columned home. Another favorite stop is the Linn Cove Viaduct, which is one of the greatest engineering marvels of the world. They literally built this part of the Parkway over the sides of the mountain. Truly an amazing site to see. We will enjoy some time at their visitor center to learn more about its construction. Further down to road is the lovely Alta Pass Orchards, one of the oldest know apple orchards in the area. It’s unique in that the owners have the land in a Foundation, so that nothing can be developed around it. Lovely spot and great apple shopping too. We’ll enjoy a box lunch while there. This trip is just the perfect fall getaway, full of stunning views, great stops, good food, and the fabulous Blue Ridge Parkway. Come enjoy the season and the scenery with us!
