We went to the Visitor Center first. They have a 30 minute film. A stamping place for your US National Passport. Rangers were helpful telling us where to go for waterfalls and what to expect with the tunnels. Information about the mileage and mile markers distances.
We know we went to come back in the Autumn.
The views on the outlooks are breathtaking.

One of the most beautiful rides you can take any time of year, but especially in the fall. I enjoy hikes too and this year I'm going to find a new waterfall to explore.

One of the most beautiful drives in North America. Bring your picnic basket and enjoy lunch in one of the roadside parks along the route.

To enjoy the beauty of the mountains surrounding Asheville don't miss out driving on the Blue Ridge Parkway and a stop at the visitor center. Just be careful that the Parkway is open as some parts may be closed during the winter months.

There was a man working behind one of the counters who seemed to be exceptionally good at providing traveling directions and tips. I heard him helping numerous people and making some great recommendations. I liked looking around and learning about the Blue Ridge Parkway. The short movie was informative and entertaining.
