Chattanooga to Washington DC

Hello all. I'm looking for a bit of advice....my wife and I are currently in Chattanooga and heading to the Blue Ridge Highway tomorrow. We also want to go to Asheville and then Washington DC.

Does anyone have any advice as to what route to take for this stretch of our trip? Time isn't too much of an issue.....we plan to take a few days to get to DC, we're looking for great riding and to see the sites.

Thanks in advance!

You can jump on the Blue Ridge Parkway all the way up to where it intersects with I-64, where you have several choices from there. You can continue on the same road, which becomes Skyline Dr., and you'd be able to take it until you hit I-66E, which will lead you to Washington DC. You could also choose to take Route 50 instead of I-64, it's a bit slower and a better view. You could ride up the Blue Ridge Parkway, and leave it once you hit I-64, to jump across a bit west to Route 11, which runs parallel to I-81. Great mountain scenery on that road. Another good option is Route 29 once you hit I-64 from the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Hope that helps some!

You could also stop in at the Horizons Unlimited meet in Robbinsville, NC next week and make the trip even better

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
