We visited in fog so missed the best of the place. But the rock isn't much to look at and the whole thing is expensive for about 10 minutes worth of sightseeing. Better views are available along the Blue Ridge Highway for free.

It's an ok place I didn't think it was worth the money to get in to see a rock. People with kids might enjoy it.

Don't miss it! Nice little tourist place with a great story. Not much and will take no more than a hour to make your way around the grounds. Not too pricey just $7 for adults. Enjoyed the pass through.

Is a very beautiful place to stop. I think they could lengthen the trails though. It took me less than 30 min to walk the whole trail.

Remember, the story is legend. It is an interesting place to see, but it was raining all day that day and I guess that spoiled the visit. I would go back to see it when the weather is better. Great Views.

Stumbled by this place on an impromptu trip. So glad we stopped in! Was a little chilly and windy the day we went so didn't spend as much time as we would have had it been warmer. Beautiful natural landscapes, sweeping views of the mountains...More

We saw the Blowing Rock yesterday, a bright, clear, sunny day. We paid the senior rate of admission, $6, and it was worth every cent. The site has been privately owned for decades and is very tastefully laid out. You enter through a quaint building...More
