The Blowing Rock is interesting to see. However, it was expensive for what it is. We would not go again

Some of the best mountain views in North Carolina are from The Blowing Rock. Evening sunsets are absolutely stunning! A must see.

My family and I went here on the first day of or vacation. It is relatively small and a nice place to visit. There are great views from here and a great place for pictures.
