Address : 3744 Blue Ridge Parkway, Linville, NC, United States     Google maps

Linn Cove Viaduct is a 1243-foot concrete segmental bridge. It was the last section of Blue Ridge Parkway to be finished (in 1987). The viaduct was built to avoid unnecessary damage to the Grandfather Mountain. The bride and the technique how it was built is quite amazing. It was built from top down and therefore no road or heavy machinery on the ground was required. The bridge has received eleven design awards.

There's a visitor center at the south end of the Viaduct (cache location). There you can learn more about the bridge and Blue Ridge Parkway in general.

Blue Ridge Parkway is a 469-mile, non-stop recreational motor road that connects Shenandoah and Great Smoky Mountains National Parks. There is no admission fee and most of the things to do along the way are free. It's one of the most scenic routes in America.

Other attractions : Mile High Swinging Bridge is close to the Vidaduct
