Bud and I used to live in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. We would often take a drive up the interstate to the mountains to visit wineries, breweries, golf or just have lunch.
One summer day we decided to go on the Blue Ridge Parkway to a much praised restaurant, Pisgah Inn. The Inn is a short drive up into the mountains outside of Asheville, North Carolina. The food was good, not great, but, Oh the views! Spectacular scenery and you could see for miles.

The parkway offers more than a leisurely SCENIC drive. Plenty of opportunities to learn the history of the region, for hiking and biking, restaurants, lodging and more await the curious traveler.
