The Blue Ridge Parkway goes along the Appalachian Mountains from Waynesboro, Virginia to Cherokee in North Carolina for a total of 750 km. I drove the distance from Asheville to Blowing Rock, and it was a very beautiful drive. This is not a road intended for transport; when I asked Google Maps for the distance from Asheville to Blowing Rock it wanted to take me on completely different roads. The speed limit is 70 km/h or lower, and commercial vehicles are not permitted. In short, it is a road made for sightseeing.
