Blue Ridge Mountains
Drive the Blue Ridge Parkway in the NC Mountains
Minutes away from the cosmopolitanism and urban charm of downtown Asheville and Hill House bed and breakfast are the ancient and serene Blue Ridge Mountains, the highest in eastern North America.
The 75-year-old Blue Ridge Parkway, one of the country’s engineering wonders, runs along the crest of the mountains and passes just outside of the Asheville city limits. It transports drivers and cyclists to an awe-inspiring wonderland of majestic scenery, tiny mountain towns, and craftmanship with a legacy of generations.
With a 10-degree temperature difference from Asheville and a heaven’s bounty of waterfalls and swimming holes, hikes through the Blue Ridge and adjacent forests are a summer’s daydream. In fall, the color show attracts people from around the world. And there's always wonder in the spring, when the rhododendron and other mountain flowers break into bloom.
From Hill House bed and breakfast, drive the nearby, scenicl Town Mountain Road up the mountainside to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Head north toward Mt. Mitchell or south toward the Folk Art Center.
