The Fancy Gap area has dining to fit your taste.

There is also nothing more calming than to picnic on the Blueridge parkway, looking a unique scenery and magnificent views.


Rap's Orchard Gap

 Right off the Blue Ridge Parkway lies a taste of the past, Rap's Orchard Gap. Don't let the name fool you, there's no rap music here, just some good old - fashioned fifties and sixties music, and a chance to get caught up in the past.

This gas station / convenient store has become a place where you can turn back the hands of time. A time when life was simpler. From the moment you pull up to the pumps, you're welcomed by the rocking chgairs that line the wrap-a-round porch. You can find the locals, a biker, or even a cyclist or two sitting and enjoying the beautiful scenery.

If you're hot and want a refreshing treat, come in and check out our fifties style soda shoppe.

You can always find a great conversation and linger as long as you like, because that's what it is all about here.

The hospitality of the friendly staff, mixed with the music and food, makes this experience one not to miss.

You can often see the owner (Bob Rap) sitting amongst the locals and passers by, enjoying the day.

If its entertainment you seek, Pap's offers free music from time to time. The bandstand is outdoors, near the picnic area, making it a day to remember. So, don't miss this find the next time your driving or riding down the Blue Ridge Parkway. It may be the only way to have a true taste of the past.

Pap's Orchard Gap is located on the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway between Mile Markers 193 and 194. Your perfect destination for sandwiches, beverages, ice cream, gas, souvenirs and whatever else you might need.

Come play checkers, games, chess, jacks, and horse shoes. We will host various events throughout the season, including Saturday barbeques and live music.
