Village Christmas Decor

We are coming up to the area to go snow tubing for one night over Christmas break. Which town has more festive holiday decor and Christmas lights: Blowing Rock or Boone? I am thinking Blowing Rock, but wanted to ask the experts. Thanks!

They are so close, go see both. Also be sure to go the Original Mast General Store in Valle Crucis -

If you are looking for a place to stay, I would opt for Blowing Rock, and I would agree with Onemoreroad about The Mast Store and Annex.

Already have a place to stay - got a great deal in Boone months ago.

We just want a nice place to walk around in the evening and enjoy a holiday atmosphere, before and after we have dinner. Obviously, it will be dark. Don't mind driving to Blowing Rock though. Do both towns have lights and holiday stuff?

For quaintness and walking around after dinner, I'd choose Banner Elk.

You're not going to find any size town without Christmas decor.

Definitely Blowing Rock. A charming mountain town that just makes you feel like Christmas.

I also suggest driving through Chetola Resort. The holiday lighting starts st the front gate and some is animated. Very well done!

Thanks for the input. I had seen another note about Chetola. We will definitely check it out.

I think Blowing Rock has a lot of good restaurants anyway, so it's a win-win.
