What’s more synonymous with a North Carolina fall than cruising on the Blue Ridge Parkway? Sure, it can get congested, sure, ‘leafers’ are painfully slow drivers, sure…you might be asking yourself, ‘Is it even worth it?’ But when you really think about it, we’re so lucky to be blessed with this kind of natural beauty in our state…why would we not take advantage of it?

North Carolina has one of the most gorgeous (and rivaled) autumns in the country and let’s be honest, come leaf season, we’re all secretly ‘leafers.’ Buckle up and take a cruise on the Parkway, but don’t forget to stop at these overlooks to make the most of your journey.
