“Gorgeous”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

Blowing Rock is really a cool, fun place to visit. The views you can see are just breathtaking and the rock itself is a legend. It offers a great place for fun family pictures and provides a fun time for all. It has a gift shop with fun knick-knacks after you've toured the place. It also has a big outlook platform, and you can see for miles before you reach the horizon. It only has a few hazards, although it'd take somebody really dumb to run into them, such as falling off the rock. It's fun for all.

“Dated, but beautiful!”
Reviewed 27 December 2013

This is simply a "Rock", The Blowing Rock, that has a story to it. Perched high above, the mountains of Blowing Rock, NC, the scenery is awesome. COLD, in the winter, but still worth the $6 to get in. Small hiking trail, not the attraction it probably was 30-40 years ago, but a neat place to see. Staff is friendly, helpful and glad to see you. Incredible photo ops! Scenic overlooks, no crowds, and great deal. The kids loved it. Gift shop with some fair prices. A great 1 1/2 -2 hour time.

“Blowing Rock”
Reviewed 12 December 2013

It's worth a visit. If it is cloudy and foggy, you'll be disappointed because the real draw is the expansive view. Fall is a great time to visit if you enjoy looking at the mountain colors. Probably not for children, as they might be bored.

“Great Views”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

The mountains are really gorgeous at this time of the year. We took pictures and they are amazing. We also went to the shops and they have some unique things. The vendors were all very pleasant.
