Blue Ridge Parkway advice

Planning our fall trip thinking about doing the Blue Ridge Parkway Will be doing it in a car not pulling a trailer. Who has done it ? How much time did you take? North to south or south to north? Attractions along the way or at either end? Spent some time in Cherokee, NC last year, enjoyed it so going back to the area this year.

Only have done the BRP on a bike with the missus on pillion. Rode behind an under powered Class A for every mile at about 20 mph and the ride was not much fun. Choose your time carefully to avoid these situations. When the leaves change it brings out the slow pokes. Only ride that compared was the Natchez Trace... missus wanted to take the bike on an "Elvis Tribute" tour and riding 45 mph in a sea of tall trees when it is 137F and HUMID and bugs in your face was miserable. Maybe try that one in mid-winter?

can't give you the whole route but a must as far as I am concerned is stop and explore Little Switzerland. You can't beat the valleys. do lunch and have a drink.

We did Skyline Drive several times from north to south but never continued on to Blue Ridge Pky. Campgrounds on SLD were no hookups but restrooms were very clean. Overlook sites of Appellation Trail were fabulous and Luray Caverns in the center of the park was a definite must see. Some good inclines and descents so don't expect to break any speed records.

Enjoy and travel safely, Hank

So far this a Plan B if our other plans fail but it is something I have wanted to drive for a while as well as the Natchez Trace.
