Things to Do in Blowing Rock, NC

Travelers have been visiting the "Crown of the Blue Ridge" since the 1800s to enjoy the rejuvenating mountain air, local crafts, and signature small-town charm. Many locals and out-of-towners choose and cut their Christmas trees right on the mountain, and the fall's changing leaves fill the entire town and its surrounding mountains with beautiful, vibrant color. Unique festivals run from spring to fall, and the streets are lined with boutiques featuring local art and one-of-a-kind souvenirs.
