See the beautiful blooms of spring along the Blue Ridge Parkway - America's Favorite Drive!
The hotels and accommodations on the Blue Ridge Parkway provide a relaxing place to rest when traveling on the Parkway, the most visited unit in the National Park System and "America's Favorite Drive." The Parkway winds through the heart of Virginia's Blue Ridge and our region offers a variety of hotels, B&Bs, resorts, cabins, and campgrounds within close proximity to this breathtakingly scenic road.
The 469-mile route winds its way through the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina and Virginia and the Roanoke Valley features eight different entry points - including an entrance that is only 10 minutes from Downtown Roanoke.
Multiple sections of the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia's Blue Ridge are currently closed for repair projects. There is a closure at Milepost 114 for the Roanoke River Bridge Rehabilitation Project and a closure due to a road failure caused by landslides near Milepost 128.
We've created a special Blue Ridge Parkway Detour Route for information about things to do in the area and recommended directions for accessing the Parkway around these closures. Parkway Detour Info >
NOTE: You can still access Explore Park at Milepost 115 via the Parkway from accessing the road at U.S. 220 (Milepost 121.4) or Mill Mountain (Milepost 120) and traveling north to reach the park.
Many of the accommodations on the Parkway offer incredible views of the surrounding mountains, vistas, and valleys to go along with first-class hospitality and lodging facilities.
There are also numerous hiking trails, great spots for wildlife viewing, and scenic overlooks on the Parkway.
Overnight accommodations on the Parkway are a popular option for many visitors, with some taking advantage of the beautiful facilities that are available while others capitalize on the opportunity to enjoy camping and sleeping under the starry skies of Virginia's Blue Ridge.
The Parkway also provides many stopping locations for RVs.
Whether it's a secluded resort with world-class golf, pitching your own tent, or a charming bed & breakfast near a quaint, small town, there are many different options for places to stay during your Parkway travels.
