Blue Ridge Parkway Foliage is peaking right now – mid through late October. Make sure the batteries in your camera are fresh or charged, hop in the car, and spend a few days at Virginia bed and breakfasts Blue Ridge Parkway.
Get in the spirit of Halloween with a walking tour of historic Abingdon VA. Abingdon Spirit Tours depart at 7:30 p.m. and last about two hours. Plan to walk about a mile (often on cobblestone streets and sidewalks, which can be bumpy) and delve into centuries of history. Guide Donnamarie Emmert has researched the haunts of Abingdon rigorously, and the results are both fascinating and entertaining. She is an expert storyteller, and often spins yarns at festivals when not roaming about Abingdon on October evenings. Expect to be astonished, amused and amazed by what you hear. Additional information about Abingdon Spirit Tours may be found at the website.
Autumn means brilliant fall foliage, but it also means harvest time. For many, the most anticipated harvest of the season is the grape harvest, for it brings promise of Virginia wine. Enjoy a taste of autumn at Château Morrisette, which serves lunch daily through October between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. After feasting and perhaps touring the winery, return to a Floyd VA bed and breakfast and enjoy Blue Ridge Fall Foliage from the comfort of a porch chair. For directions to the winery, visit Château Morrisette.
Stop by Williams Orchard Saturdays and Sundays through October 30 for fall festival fun. Hayrides, corn maze, and fields of pumpkins are surrounded by glorious fall foliage. Freshly pressed apple cider, Indian Corn, fall decorations, and pumpkins await those who stop by this Wytheville VA farm.
There is much to do this fall along the Blue Ridge Parkway, and the brilliant Blue Ridge Parkway foliage makes a glorious background.
