    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.

    Interested in this favorite American drive? Enter to win the Blue Ridge Parkway 75th Anniversary Sweepstakes. It’s a six night excursion for four that includes lodging, airfare and a hybrid rental car.

    Discover all that’s waiting for you on the Blue Ridge Parkway at Virginia.org.

    1. This article ranked the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, which also happens to be right along the Blue Ridge Parkway, among the Top Ten National Parks in the US.
