The Blue Ridge Highlands Region
Home > Virginia Trip Planner > Blue Ridge Highlands Region

The words "Blue Ridge" will begin to conjure up images of the region: majestic mountains, fresh air and tall trees. The Blue Ridge region is all this and more!

There have been many talented people attracted to the beauty of the Highlands, and it is said that country music was born here in the Blue Ridge region, in Bristol. It was here in 1927 that downtown Bristol hosted two weeks of recording sessions that have influenced subsequent bluegrass, gospel and rock and roll artists beyond measure. Visit the Birth of Country Music Alliance, or take a cruise along the Blue Ridge parkway, one of the nations most scenic drives.

And of course, there is Blacksburg, home of Virginia Tech. Stop off here to catch an NCAA Hokies game.
