NPS Blue Ridge Parkway Destination Center – Asheville, NC
The Blue Ridge Parkway is the longest, narrowest National Park in the world, running 469 miles through the Blue Ridge Mountains in Western North Carolina and Central Virginia.
The center and its exhibits are designed to be a premier tourist destination. The main film offers stunning high-definition imagery of the region in all seasons. Its wide-screen format and surround sound immerse visitors on a journey down the Parkway. Three interpretive islands and supporting exhibits offer visitors an overview of what makes this region unique—a confluence of nature, people, opportunity, and spirit.
A separate information desk for the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area provides visitors with regional destination information. Electronic kiosks serve as digital concierges, responding to individual interests, making reservations and printing traveler information.
