The Blue Ridge Parkway is beautiful and you'll enjoy driving part of it. Here is a good map of BRP:


The Parkway speed limit is 35-45 mph so keep that in mind when planning your journey. I like using maps.google.com because you can list your driving locations, then drag the line to another road, ie. from I-81 to the BRP for trip recalculations....it's easy to use. In the options area you can also select "avoid highways", maps.google will then tell you the drive times based on your selected routes.

Consider some time in Shenandoah National Park on the Skyline Drive if your schedule permits. SNP map:


Hope this helps.
