The Longest Scenic Drive In Virginia’s Shenandoah National Park Leads To The Blue Ridge Parkway
Shenandoah National Park is the crown jewel of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Showcasing endless mountain views and breathtaking forests, the park offers endless adventures. And while hiking is a major draw to the park, many people visit just to experience Skyline Drive. This 105.5-mile drive weaves its way through the mountains, offering photo-worthy views at every turn. And what some people may not realize is that if you continue driving south on Skyline Drive, you’ll eventually enter the Blue Ridge Parkway.
