This halloween weekend I will be driving from Boone NC to Asheville NC to visit a friend from high school. Many US routes and NC routes can get me there but there is one road in particular that connects the two. The Blue Ridge Parkway.

This time of the year the parkway is absolutely beautiful. It just takes an hour longer to get to Asheville. Is it worth it? I could just do parts of it but I like the idea of a nice long twisty drive.


The speed limit is 45 and heavily enforced by the NPS but I really don’t mind.

What say you Oppo? Go scenic this halloween or stick to US 221?

Via Blue Ridge Parkway


Quicker route.
