RVFTA #42: Greetings from the Blue Ridge Parkway!

The Mabry Mill on the Blue Ridge Parkway

On episode #42 of RV Family Travel Atlas, we are talking about the amazing and beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway.

We kicked off our summer adventures by exploring the Fancy Gap area of the Blue Ridge Parkway. The mix of natural beauty, historical interest, and touristy charm surprised and delighted us. We will tell you all about this peaceful, scenic getaway in the great state of Virginia.

And we also fell in love with the Fancy Gap KOA, our base camp for this first part of our summer spectacular. We will give you a full review of the campground along with an interview with the owners, Mark and Cheryl Manning.

To read more about the campground and our adventures in this area, read our blog post with all the details.

Highlights include:

The Blue Ridge Music Center where you can listen to live music every day between 12 and 4 pm.

The Mabry Mill where you can have a yummy meal at the restaurant and then tour the mill, blacksmith shop, and other historical buildings.

Rock Knob Trail Area, where the ridge line trails offer spectacular views and kid-friendly hiking options.

Mount Airy, the charming hometown of Andy Griffith and the inspiration for Mayberry.
