Best National Parks in Each Region During Fall

As the warm days of summer lead into the cool nights and brisk mornings of fall, there comes a time when that perfect combination of weather makes for spectacular scenery across many parts of the country.

5 Reasons to Drive The Blue Ridge Parkway

The Blue Ridge Mountains should be on everybody’s bucket list. Here are 5 reasons to pack your bags immediately and head out on this scenic 469-mile adventure that goes from Virginia to North Carolina.

1. It’s Pretty Quiet

The first reason is, it’s pretty quiet.

If you’re wondering why that’s such a big deal- you will understand when you get there. Because there is a speed limit of only 45 mph and big trucks are not allowed, cars are free to coast along at a comfortable pace.
