North Carolina/Virginia – Another scenic drive to gawk at this season is the Blue Ridge Parkway spanning from North Carolina to Virginia. This National Parkway is acclaimed for its 469 miles of beauty as it travels along Blue Ridge, a stunning section of the Appalachian Mountains. You can drive the entire stretch if you’re feeling adventurous, or pull over to stay or hike at any of the numerous tourist destinations along the road. Head here between mid- to late October for all of the rich, awe-inspiring colors.
