Detailed review by normarl
PaPaw's and MUH's 3 week road trip to middle east coast states had to include The Blue Ridge Parkway from end to end. With first grandson at 4 in tow, this vacation began in earnest. He started Pre K the day after we returned. Did not miss his mother until about an hour and half from home. Of course, he talked to her everyday and she received a picture of him every day. He visited 6 states and Washington D.C. He had his own navigation system on his passenger window, so that he could make sure we were going where we were scheduled and so that he did not hurt his neck and back looking at the one in the front console.
He knew from his navigation unit where each turn our was and insisted that we turn out on every one of them. The Blue Ridge Parkway is a must travel roadway if you have not been there done that. There are quaint villages along the way, beautiful vistas and remarkable photo ops. Just could not keep 3 cameras powered up enough. There are many educational points along the way.
I think to do the Blue Ridge Parkway justice, you should spend 3 days driving which ever direction you find suits your itinerary best.
