You’ve arrived at your Smoky Mountain Getaways cabin and you’re wondering what you might want to do. How about taking a scenic drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway? With breath taking views, overlooks, and trails it is the perfect way to enjoy your day. Driving the Parkway is the equivalent of driving from Georgia to Maine as far as the scenery you will see along the way. You will travel from an elevation of 1,991’ in Cherokee to 6,053’ at the Richland Balsam Overlook. There is always the chance of seeing a variety of wildlife as you meander from overlook to overlook. Pack a picnic, wear shoes that let you explore the woods, bring plenty of water, and spend the day relaxing forgetting all your worries and cares.
