We are doing a Blowing Rock, to Asheville jaunt, and am curious to see if the town of Blowing Rock itself will take up more than 3-4 hours for some shopping and a meal. I am aware of the surrounding areas, towns, and outdoor hiking, sightseeing, etc., but have read that the town itself might only fill up an afternoon of "browsing". Just my wife and I on this trip (no kids) and having never been, am trying to plan accordingly. Would not mind spending a night or two to combine some shopping and hiking, but if the town does not warrant it, I'd rather get the extra day in Asheville. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
