Let’s go for a scenic drive across Virginia, and take our time doing it. You game? Here, in part 5 of the 48 Hour Fall Getaways in Virginia series, we’ll take a look at a few options that include some of Virginia’s most beautiful scenic drives.
Roanoke is often called the “Star City of the South,” thanks, in large part, to the 100-foot-tall lighted beacon on Mill Mountain. The view from up there – just one of hundreds of scenic sites along the Blue Ridge Parkway – is one that might just leave you breathless. In fact, it’s the site of many marriage proposals, if you have something romantic in mind.

If you’ve never driven the George Washington Memorial Parkway, you must. There are so many beautiful stops along the way, not the least of which is the gorgeous Potomac River and our nation’s capital across the way.

Colonial Parkway is the way to travel the Historic Triangle. From the 1607 landing at Jamestown to the colonial seat of government in Colonial Williamsburg, and on to Revolutionary War victory in Yorktown, there’s so much beauty and so much history along this one stretch or road.
LOVE is at the heart of every Virginia vacation. Virginia is for Lovers.
