My wife and me plan to drive the Blue Ridge Parkway the week of Easter. Has anyone done this? Any ideas or places to visit? We are doing the northern end in Virginia. We are newbies to this area.

What is wrong with your bike?

Check the nps.gov website.

Actually, I am taking my bike which is fine. The motor (me) is another story!

Isn't the northern end of the parkway known as the Skyline Drive? I am more familiar with the Blueridge Parkway in NC. Take your time as there are lots of nice sights to see and the parkway isn't made for driving fast. I have heard that Peaks of the Otter is a very nice stretch of the parkway, just north of the NC line. I drove the whole stretch through VA many years ago but can't remember any details. It seems like the parkway is straighter and not as high altitude in VA compared to NC.
