Significance: Blue Ridge Parkway was the first long-distance rural parkway developed by the National Park Service. Its designers adapted parkway development strategies originating in suburban commuter routes and metropolitan park systems and expanded them to a regional scale, creating a scenic motorway linking two of the most prominent eastern national parks. The parkway was conceived as a multiple-purpose corridor that would fulfill a variety of social, recreational, environmental and pragmatic functions. In addition to preserving and showcasing attractive natural scenery, the parkway was designed to display the traditional cultural landscapes of the southern Appalachian highlands, providing visitors with an idealized vision of America's rural heritage. At frequent intervals the parkway borders expand to encompass smaller parks, recreational areas, and historic sites, many of which include picnic areas and/or overnight accommodations. Blue Ridge Parkway's attractive natural and cultural features, its diverse recreational attractions, and its relatively accessible East Coast location have long made it the most heavily visited unit of the National Park System.
