Known as the “Crown of the Blue Ridge,” Blowing Rock offers visitors sweeping vistas of the Blue Ridge Mountains, which are cool and refreshing in the spring and summer, before blazing into a beautiful tapestry of changing leaves in autumn and frosting with snow in winter.
One of the only towns located directly on the Blue Ridge Parkway, Blowing Rock offers visitors sweeping vistas of the Blue Ridge Mountains and storybook village charm. It’s a place where you can roam…or relax. Explore hiking and biking trails, go horseback riding, fly fishing or skiing at Appalachian Ski Mountain. Shop in our unique downtown boutiques or outlet stores.

Then, take time to pamper yourself at one of our spas, indulge at our award-winning restaurants, or rest up in style at our bed and breakfasts, country inns, hotels, resorts or vacation rentals.
