The Parkway’s small communities put big smiles on visitors’ faces. You’ll see why.
In a commercialized, homogenized world, it isn’t only the Parkway’s beautiful billboard-free vistas that come as a welcome relief–the charming, friendly communities along the Parkway are also a real breath of fresh air. These small communities greet you with the kind of hospitality you never thought existed any more, in settings that offer range of delightful attractions and activities that you never dreamed could be so entertaining, not to mention enlightening.
The Parkway’s small communities aren’t just the soul of hospitality, they’re also at the heart of America’s history, where national leaders and icons got their start and made their mark, and where today you can experience a slice of life as delectable as the jellies and jams of small vineyards, as inspiring as the pumped where Annie Sullivan helped Helen Keller escape her prison, as unforgettable as the ruins of Windsor.
Best of all, these small treasures are scattered all along the Parkway, ready for you to dive in and come up richer for the experience.
