I’ve been busy with school/church/family/husband lately, and I’ve been remiss in finishing up our trip around my little world…
Driving on the Blue Ridge Parkway
On top of the world
- Little Switzerland, North Carolina
Little Switzerland has always been one of my favorite little places to stop along the parkway.
There are some cute little shops, a book store, an ice cream parlor, and a lodge with chalets.
From L.S. we continued south to Asheville, seeing this Momma and her cubs along the way:
- Asheville, North Carolina
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Asheville! In fact, if you’ve never been to the Smokies or Blue Ridge before, I would take a couple days away from Gatlinburg to see the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, along with the city’s gorgeous downtown. You also want to hit Chimney Rock, which is about 20 min south of Asheville. Personally, I prefer the Blue Ridge over the Smokies any day…
We capped off our day with a visit to the Tupelo Honey Café, with it’s legendary one hour wait, minimum.
…and listened to the awesome band perform.
The Galen Kipar Project
And then our table was ready.
We enjoyed the rest of our meal. So much that we forgot to take pictures.
This is why I love East TN & West NC.
It’s “God’s Land” folks.
