Blue Ridge Parkway

The Blue Ridge Parkway goes along the southern Appalachian Mountains making it one of the best scenic road trips in North Carolina. Take this path and you’ll find beautiful sights as well as plenty of things to stop and do such as making a visit to the connected Great Smoky Mountains National Park. If you’re looking to step out to see the view from a stone observatory deck, make a stop at the Fox Hunters Paradise Overlook on your way through.

Cherohala Skyway

The Cherohala Skyway is a 52-mile ride through the Great Smoky Mountains, the Cherokee National Forest, and Nantahala National Forest. It’s also recommended drivers take a side trip onto Joyce Kilmer Road to hike the 2-mile Joyce Kilmer Recreational Trail.

Outer Banks National Scenic Byway

This byway stretches through 137 miles of marshes, dunes, beaches, and all the wildlife that inhabits them. Get onto the Outer Banks National Scenic Byway to enjoy the sights, the sounds, and some fresh air. Be sure not to miss the Hatteras Lighthouse. This is the tallest lighthouse in the United States!

Piedmont History Road Trip

If you’re interested in historical hours, the Piedmont Triad consists of three large cities to explore. Start in Mount Airy, Andy Griffith’s hometown, and make your way to Old Salem which was founded by the Moravians in 1766. Explore the rich history of Bennett Place and the Duke Homestead in Durham next for a truly exciting experience.

Haunted Road Trip

These places on the way will not only be historical, but haunted. Visit the Great Dismal Swamp, the place that inspired novelist Harriet Beecher Stowe, Maco Lights, where a man was decapitated by a train and haunts the area, and even Grove Park Inn where you may run into the infamous Pink Lady who fell to her death from the fifth floor.
