Craggy Gardens, Ivy, NC 28778, USA
Craggy Gardens Visitor CenterThis overlook off the Blue Ridge Parkway, milepost 364.4 for those of you who know the parkway by heart (or are just learning to), offers incredible sunrises and sunsets. A short drive from Asheville, this is one of my favorite spots to drink coffee or unwind after a long day. The Visitor Center has some information for tourists (maps, friendly rangers, books, etc.) as well as bathrooms. If you're looking for a hike, there are trailheads not far from the parking lot! This is a must-do when you're in town.

Drive the Blue Ridge Parkway. This shot was taken at Craggy Gardens above Asheville, NC. The short hike is under a mile and the views are worth a lot more effort than you will have to put out.
