1. Switzerland Inn – Little Switzerland, North Carolina


From famed motophilosopher Peter Jones comes a thumbs up for the Switzerland Inn, conveniently located right on the Blue Ridge Parkway. (Actually, he told me to tell everybody to go to the Tail of the Dragon Resort to keep the crowds away from this spot.) Chi-chi though this place looks, it’s owned by a serious motorcycle enthusiast, and they’ll probably let you stay and eat on the house if you mention MO and Peter Jones. Just kidding. The resort includes the Diamondback Motorcycle Lodge, with covered parking for your bike, starting at just $69. Breakfast in the Fowl Play Pub starts at 7:30.

Switzerland Inn – The Peak NC Blue Ridge Parkway Resort… Since 1910.

Say, is that 10 already? Why stop now, I’m on a roll… (get it?)
