  • A Grand Time in Grand Haven, Michigan

 

Drive northeast and you’ll find Grand Haven, Michigan, where the Musical Fountain delights locals and visitors alike on summer weekends with displays of water, lights and music. Get your body moving on a hike in one of the area’s many parks or on a gorgeous bike trail along the lake. If it's sunny, don't miss the beaches or a fishing trip. Make sure to take a walk around the boardwalk and visit the Grand Haven Lighthouse.

  • Roanoke Mountain to Linville Falls

 

Head out early and drive south to Roanoke, Virginia, where you can hike the 6.5-kilometer loop around Roanoke Mountain to enjoy spectacular views of southern Virginia. Back on the Parkway, stop for a lunch of buckwheat cakes and country ham at Mabry Mill, and then round out the evening with a bluegrass performance at the Blue Ridge Music Center. Performances take place several times a week from May through October. Cross into North Carolina and spend a relaxing morning bird watching at Cumberland Knob, the site where construction of the parkway first began in 1935. Then, gear up for about a two-hour stretch in the car to the Linn Cove Viaduct, a concrete bridge that hugs the curves of Grandfather Mountain. Finish the day with a less than 30-minute drive to Linville Falls and spend the night in a camping cabin, complete with linens, fully stocked kitchen and television.

  • Linville Falls to Asheville, North Carolina

Take in the natural beauty up close at Craggy Gardens where vivid floral displays hit their peak in June and July. Continue south to the Southern Highland Craft Gallery to shop for traditional Appalachian crafts from Southern Highland Craft Guild artists such as decorated pottery, jewelry and leather goods. A little more than 7 kilometers down the road from the craft gallery you’ll find the Blue Ridge Parkway Headquarters, where you can orient yourself on the parkway’s offerings and find tips on places to hike and admire the view. Exit the parkway and drive to Asheville, North Carolina, a bustling mountain town known for its craft beer scene, artisan community and diverse cuisine. After conquering the Blue Ridge Parkway, check in for a night at the historic Omni Grove Park Inn and treat tired muscles to a treatment at the nearly 4,000-square-meter spa.

  • New Orleans, Louisiana

 

All throughout the French Quarter, expect to see street musicians and performers. The street musicians in particular are often the source of visitors’ most unforgettable moments. Imagine coming out of one of the shops on Royal Street as a street parade is just passing by. Known as “Second Lines,” these impromptu street parades are a proud New Orleans tradition. Or, you might be wandering the streets when a local Dixieland band complete with washboard, tuba, upright bass and drums sets up on a street corner. Passersby start dancing while a crowd of locals and visitors casually gathers on the sidewalk to listen as the sun sets.
