by Renae Virata | You wouldn’t believe it unless you saw it, but the mountains along the Blue Ridge Parkway really look – blue! I was lucky to make this trip (for work, no less!) for a stretch a few years back. Definitely a wonderful break in between meetings. (Read below to know why they’re so blue.) Higher elevations mean it can get somewhat cool, so, again, layers work best. Have some fun with your pics and do a blue-themed wardrobe. And make sure you’re comfortable if you decide to do a mini-hike to scope out some nature.

New York City is a mecca for ambitious business professionals, impassioned creatives, families, immigrants, and anyone inspired to live life at a pulsing rate.
