The Blowing Rock attraction has been on the radar for a while now. We were going to try for it last year on Spring Break but spent a little too much time at a waterfall. It was around forty degrees when we arrived so there wasn’t a crowd. We paid our admission and pretty much had the run of the place.

This is a good place for families with small children. There are rails everywhere and not much walking. The observation tower is a good place to take in all of the area. You can see Grandfather and Grandmother mountains from here. We probably spent as much time in the gift shop as on the ledges.
