Blowing Rock is a fairly quick attraction to visit. The vista with the scopes is beautiful and there is a great deal of history to the area.

The legend of blowing rock brought us to see it. It's not a long walk around the entire area but it's beautiful and worth visiting.

We enjoyed the staff, the view, the legend, and the shop! Cute gardens and walking path. The photo and historical data was neat too.

There are amazing views from the rock. Parents of small children need to watch them very closely. I liked the garden area with waterfall. There was a very quaint visitor center and store.
