Blue Ridge Pkwy - Blowing Rock to Cherokee in one day?

Jump to last reply

We are heading to NC to look at some colleges with our daughters the third weekend in October. We are going to take advantage of the scenery and take the BRP home to FL. We will be coming from Raleigh area and will arrive in Boone on Friday to look at Appalachian State and plan on staying in Blowing Rock that night. Basically, we have all day Sat to drive south and explore.

Husband's itinerary on Sat looks like this:
1. Linville Caverns/Falls
2. Grandfather Mtn
3. Drive down BRP until Asheville OR Cherokee and stay the night
4. Sunday - wake and drive home to FL.

Questions
1. Does this Saturday itinerary look anywhere remotely realistic with driving times?
2. If not, how far south can we get on BRP without stops?
3. If so, do you recommend Asheville or Cherokee for final night's stay?


We realize we are short on time, but have to get the kids back to school. Thanks in advance for any advice you may have.
