ASHEVILLE, NC (WLOS) — A big part of the local economy’s resurgence will ride on a driveable landmark — the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Those are impressive numbers from what now seems like a long time ago. Parkway tourism will play a key role on the road to economic recovery.
“We have no way really of knowing what the impact will look like for 2020,” parkway spokesperson Caitlin Worth said.
Not long ago, we took a trip to the parkway for granted. But in this COVID-19 age, a picnic in the mountains feels like a special occasion.
