Nothing special about this attraction. It does have a nice viewing platform with telescope viewers. There are plenty of lookouts along the Northridge Parkway that off the same views.

Lovely place to relax and enjoy with family and friends. Memorable photos taken to last a lifetime of the mountain range and my family. Small entrance fee but well worth the stroll on grounds, nature trails, through gardens and historical photo gallery museum. While visiting...More

A beautiful setting almost on the top of the mountain. Overlooks the Blue Ridge Mountains. Spectacular views but if you're wearing a hat or worried about your hair, the wind will take care of both. We will go back in the fall.

If you are on the fence about whether or not to go, then get off of it and GO! The views are stunning. This was by far my favorite attraction of our little mountain getaway!!

A small area of the history of Blowing Rock but it has great views of the mountains! Suitable for all ages. Really enjoyed the small museum with history of the surrounding area

What a beautiful view. We were able to visit on Memorial Day weekend, crowds were light and the weather was perfect. The folklore only adds to the majestic beauty of the views! Highly recommend - easy to see for the whole family.

I haven't been to THE Blowing Rock since I was about 7 years old and my husband has never been, so it was the perfect trip to stop by. We went early morning around 9am, so they had just opened and we were three of...More
