It costs $15 per car to go across the Skyline Drive. As we exit Skyline Drive, we will go directly to Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson (http://www.monticello.org/). Monticello is 28 miles from Waynesboro. Cost for Monticello is $15 per person ($12 if we have 25 folks). From there we will return to the Quality Inn. Weather permitting, we will have a pizza party at the pool.

Friday, August 31, 1st day of tour
Leave hotel at 8:00 am. We will cruise along the beginning portion of the Blue Ridge Parkway ((http://www.nps.gov/blri/) and its many scenic views.

After the tour, we will proceed to our hotel in Roanoke. Dinner will be at the 611 Steakhouse. Total Parkway miles Ė 106

Saturday, September 1, 2nd day of tour
Leave hotel at 8:00 am headed for Boone NC. Along the way we will see a number of beautiful sights, including Mabry Mill (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:T...36f31.jpg#file) and some candy shops!. We will have lunch together on the Parkway at Groundhog Mountain. Lunch will be from Padows Deli in Roanoke. Complete menu and prices will be provided to all participants.

This is a nationally known restaurant featured in Southern Living. . Total Parkway miles - 159.

Sunday, September 2, 3rd day of tour
Leave hotel at 8 am headed onto for the end of the Parkway. Along the way, we will stop at Mount Mitchell (http://www.ils.unc.edu/parkproject/visit/momi/fee.html), the highest point east of the Mississippi River and have lunch there. This is a day with some spectacular views and some steep roads both up and down. Because of very high hotel rates in Cherokee, we will cross the mountains to Gatlinburg (35 miles) where we will have dinner and stay at the Wildwood Inn. Total Parkway miles - 177

After a farewell breakfast in Gatlinburg, we will bid each other farewell until the next time!
