Sitting 3,500 feet up in the Blue Ridge Mountains, the streets of Blowing Rock are lined with antique stores, boutiques, and fabulous restaurants. After you see The Blowing Rock, the only place in the world where snow falls upside down, warm up with a great plate of mushroom bruschetta and wild caught Alaskan salmon. With a wide range of cuisine made by award-winning chefs, you can find all your favorite comfort foods, dishes for vegetarians, and even gluten-free options. Classic North Carolina barbecue pits, fantastic cafes, and quality fine-dining restaurants are just a few of the options you'll find here.
