PHOTO TOUR: 13 things to do in the Grand Canyon of the South
Here’s your Friday getaway:
Breaks Interstate Park, VA
Drive time from Nashville: 6 hours
This trip is perfect for travelers:
love disconnecting from life and heading into the mountains.
Hidden away in the heart of Appalachia in Southwest Virginia is a park managed by two states (Kentucky and Virginia). They brought us in for a visit to experience what a few days on site would be like. Don’t be fooled (like we were) by the name, the Breaks Interstate Park:
is NOT a park located on the side of the interstate.
is NOT a refurbished rest stop just off the highway.
A mountain-top wonderland for outdoor adventurists
Here are 13 awesome things you can find here:
Canyon rim ziplining
Breaks Interstate Park cabins
Breaks Interstate Park Lodge
Rhododendron Restaurant (on-site)
Breaks Interstate Water Park
Breaks Interstate Park campground (with yurt!)
Mountain bike rentals
13. (If you love bluegrass music and don’t mind driving an hour away) Ralph Stanley Museum
Pin this trip for later!
