What do I like about Blowing Rock? About EVERYTHING!!! The ride through the mountains is gorgeous! This such a quaint small town- great for weekend getaways! There is a park, pond, trails, delicious restaurants, nice Inns, and fun small stores! I love spending hours going store to store. A family favorite is to go to Kilwins Chocolate, they have fudge, ice cream, and even caramel apples!
