Humpback Rocks, Blue Ridge Parkway, Milepost 6.0 (43/51)

Couples will be on top of the world when they make Humpback Rocks their proposal destination. These bare greenstone rocks jut out of the Blue Ridge Mountains at 3,000 feet, offering unparalleled views of two valleys. Rest on one of the rock shelves or adopt the traditional kneeling pose. Her face will be glowing after the one-mile hike to the top, and after he hears yes, his will be glowing on the way back down. Couples can extend the mountain-top experience by staying at the nearby Iris Inn, which offers luxury glass-fronted cabins-each with a fireplace and hot tub-overlooking the Shenandoah Valley.
