Looking for a great American road trip?

Condé Nast Traveller tapped Virginia’s Blue Ridge Parkway as such during their recent TODAY Show interview. Editor-in-Chief, Kate Maxwell, suggests hopping on at Shenandoah National Park, camping along the way in one of nine camping areas, and riding the Parkway all the way down to Great Smoky Mountains. Maxwell also notes that the 59 species of birds found within the Parkway is more than all of Europe has to offer bird-watchers.
