=Blue Ridge Mountains

These mountains called the Blue Ridge mountains are the largest in the eastern United States (Mt. Mitchell in N. Carolina) and are part of the Appalachian mountains. They stretch from Georgia all the way to Pennsylvania. These mountains get their name because of all the trees, which release Isoprene into the air causing a haze, therefore you perceive the air as blue. Also, within this stretch are three national parks with a long stretch of highway connecting them. Now that would be a nice drive!

The Blue Ridge Mountains is known as America's most beautiful drive. However, people come for more than just the drive. Other activities to enjoy here are a zipline that allows you to view the incredible scene from a different height, trails to hike on, hayrides, campgrounds, ad even an art center.
