Burkes Garden VA

Isolated community in an upland valley. Enjoy the twisty ride in to get lunch at the general store while enjoying the peace and quiet.

Mabry Mill

One of the most photographed spots on the parkway. There is an interpretive trail with exhibits about Appalachian life. On Sundays there are often informal music gatherings. Weekend exhibits are not uncommon. If you get a chance, go visit the Meadows of Dan, at milepost 177.7. Very sweet little town.

Virginia Military Institute Museum
