Autumn Splendor in an RV

Summer is winding down, and soon the nights will be getting longer, the air will be getting a little cooler, and the trees will start changing.  Autumn is a magical time of year when you can start to pull out those light sweaters and look forward to all things pumpkin flavored.  As an RVer, you have the opportunity to go out during Fall and see some of the most beautiful areas of the country during the most beautiful time of year.  One such place is the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina and Virginia.   The Parkway is beautiful in the Summer and Spring as well.  However Autumn brings the Blue Ridge Mountains to life. This season of change is absolutely beautiful.

Mount Mitchell, NC in Autumn Splendor

We all know that one of the biggest part of RVing isn’t the destination, but the drive to get there.  The Blue Ridge Parkway during the early Autumn months is some of the beautiful and memorable driving in the country.  The great part about it is that it is not too far away from where you probably live, so you only need to plan a short weekend trip to drive through and see it in all of its splendor.  September and October are known as the prime months to see all the orange, yellow, and gold along the road, and it will leave you awe-struck by the end of your trip.

Blue Ridge Parkway Viaduct

The Linn Cove Viaduct winds past the slopes of Grandfather Mountain.

The road will take you to Mount Mitchell State Park, which has the highest peak in the Southeast.  Be sure to look for some of the great campgrounds around the park to enjoy the weekend, and make sure that you give yourself plenty of daylight for then drive to and from the park.  While most people think that the Northeast, such as New Hampshire and Vermont, has the best Autumn season drives, the Blue Ridge Parkway is sure to give them a run for their money.  So pack up the rig, and take a nice slow drive through the Blue Ridge mountains and see for yourself.  I am sure you will agree with me, when I say Autumn is a great time to go RVing…

Safe Travels and Happy RVing!
