Although the Yard Sale officially goes from Gadsden, AL to Addison, MI, feel free to jump on board anywhere in between. Lots of treasures and antiques await you from one end to the other and all points in-between.
The Gadsden to Chattanooga route is called the Lookout Mountain Parkway and will bear green signs that state this. Reader’s Digest named the Parkway as one of America’s most Scenic Drives.
