Known as America’s Favorite Drive, the Blue Ridge Parkway spans 469 miles of scenic roadway. This route connects the Great Smoky Mountains in North Carolina to the Shenandoah National Park in Virginia. If you’re looking for a relaxing ride with plenty of stuff to do along the way, check out the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Pig Trail Scenic Byway – Arkansas

The Pig Trail is a 19 mile stretch of exciting hairpin turns. The road is surrounded by a tunnel of trees in the Ozark National Forest. The Pig Trail is a popular route for people headed to the University of Arkansas to watch the Razorback football team. When you’re done exploring the Pig Trail, you can visit the Ozark Highlands and Mount Magazine.

Skyline Drive – Virginia

Skyline Drive starts in the north of the Shenandoah Valley Park and spans the crest of the Blue Ridge Mountains. This 105-mile-long drive connects to all the major visitor centers, campgrounds, lodges, picnic areas, and trailheads. Skyline Drive also leads to the Blue Ridge Parkway to kick off the ultimate fall time road trip.
