Blue Ridge Highlands

On the the 'Rooftop of Virginia,' hazy mountain grandeur comes with an equally beautiful musical score. The continent's oldest mountains and rivers form the landscape. Walk through high mountain meadows in Mount Rogers National Recreation Area, fish or paddle the New River's exciting whitewater, or drive the Blue Ridge Parkway, the nation's oldest and longest rural parkway.

Music, mountains, tradition: The essence of Virginia's Blue Ridge Highlands.
