Blowing Rock Travel Guide: 37 reviews and 140 photos


High in the Blue Ridge Mountains of western North Carolina BLOWING ROCK has been a destination for travellers seeking a place to rest and rejuvenate since the 1800's. Just off the Blue Ridge Parkway, the village offers an array of shops, restaurants and lodging.
Hans and I certainly enjoyed our afternoon in this charming village. As it was a warm and sunny Saturday afternoon in October, people were out in droves, just walking around and even doing some Christmas shopping.

    We stayed in a friendly B&B here years ago - a pretty village, and the rock itself is very scenic too, when you can see it ;-)

    Looks like a pretty village, and a perfect place to spend a sunny afternoon in, strolling around. I have never seen a red Christmas tree before, but it is nothing I would choose to buy.
