Blue Ridge Parkway Road Trip

Getaways From Washington, D.C.

Blue Ridge Parkway Road Trip

Virginia’s scenic National Parkway.

This traditional country road cuts a ribbon through small-town life in Virginia’s hilly southwest.

1

Martha Washington Inn

Try the delicious grilled cheese on buttermilk bread served at the Country Store’s lunch counter. If you happen to be there on a Sunday, don’t miss the brunch, which verges on gluttony: eggs Benedict, shrimp and oysters, stands of prime rib, and omelettes.

2

Floyd Country Store

Floyd might have a lunch counter, but it’s best known for its music: Friday nights at the Floyd Country Store, a “jamboree” of bluegrass starts at 6:30 and ends around 10:30. The performers are mostly up-and-comers from the surrounding hills.

3

Sweet Providence Farm Market & Bakery

The red-roofed log-cabin store sits on the crest of a steep hill. Its porch (in the Fall) is strewn with pumpkins and features a cider press. Elsewhere on the property apple butter boils in a copper kettle hung over a wood fire.

4

Miracle Farm Spa

Slumber in good conscience at the certified-green B&B, tucked in the hills near Floyd. The homey farmhouse has views of the garden and the rolling landscape beyond.
