I'm taking a trip south and only have time to commit one day to the blue ridge parkway. I'm coming down from central Pennsylvania to Roanoke and am trying to decide between taking the Skyline Drive and then hopping back on the interstate, or skipping the skyline drive and getting on the Blue Ridge Parkway at its entrance at Rockfish Gap and staying on it to Roanoke.
I plan on committing a full day and feel I should have time for one or the other. So the real question is- Skyline Drive vs. the first leg of the Blue Ridge Parkway into Roanoke?
Opinions of those who know better than I are very much appreciated!
