We stopped here killing time before dinner. So worth it. Make sure you pay the 7.00 to go out and look. It’s beautiful. Breathtaking views. Great for pictures. So glad we visited this place. Gift shop was lovely also.

The Blowing Rock is a tourist attraction but one that should not be passed by. Located in the small quaint town of Blowing Rock, the views are unbelievable!

Like a lot of these kinds of places, tourism has kind of stolen some of the beauty. Once you get inside the view of the valley and mountains is great - but so is the view from many places around the town

I enjoyed blowing rock. The views are beautiful! It was rainy but still very enjoyable. I would have hiked on the trail if it had not been raining. The gift shop has some cute items.

Yes pets are allowed as long as they are on a leash and you pick up the waste at The Blowing Rock park. As for the Blue Ridge Parkway, pets are also welcomed.

I would plan an hour. It's a beautiful park and a great place to take pictures. The park itself isn't that big. Enjoy the views!
