You’ll then cruise along the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway stopping for 3 nights in Asheville while you explore the local area including the stunning Biltmore Estate and nearby Lake Lure, also used extensively in Dirty Dancing. Then you’ll head to Dollywood Theme Park, staying in Dolly Parton’s DreamMore Resort before ending your trip with three nights in Nashville, the home of Country Music!
