    Default Greenville, SC to VA - Scenic Route

    My husband and I will be driving the Blue Ridge Pkway south from VA to Greenville SC (via Asheville) and were wondering what scenic drive we could take back?

    If we head east from Greenville into NC and then North, anything interesting in the Piedmont region?

    All suggestions welcome!

    Default One Very Nice Road That Might Work For You

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    One road I've enjoyed in that neck of the woods is US-29 north out of Greensboro, NC. It's one of those 4-lane divided highways that the south and midwest do so well. I wouldn't call it spectacular in the way of scenery, but it is a very pleasant drive nonetheless. What it offers as well is a fair bit of history including the presidential homes Monticello and Montpelier. Access to the later would be by taking another scenic road, VA-20, northeast out of Charlottesville. This road would also take you by Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania Court House.

    I was actually looking at driving this road again in the near future on a trek that would include a visit to your back yard, St. Mary's City. I'd appreciate it if you could tell me whether a visit to Maryland's first capital would be time well spent.
