Blowing Rock is a beautiful place to take pictures. They have safe railings for the children they have two wonderful overlooks where you can get different perspectives of the valley. If you've never been you need to go. This is a place for all ages....More

If you're looking for an amazing place to photograph the sunset, visit The Blowing Rock, just a quick drive off of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Blowing Rock has great points to shoot, particularly the observation tower which gives tremendous and unobstructed views of the mountains....More

Great place to take excellent photos of the mountains of NC. Gift shop was nice with staff that were kind and answered questions with knowledge. Only thing was it was so windy it was almost unbearable to stand out long to take photos.

This is an easy walk to view the Blue Ridge. Gravel path with lookouts. Small pond with fish. Gift shop. Takes maybe 30-60 minutes. Depends how long you look at the views .

I must say that the view is fantastic but charging a $7 entry fee per adult I found a bit steep. The rock is literally 20m outside the door

I thought this was on my "must see" list. Now that I've been there, I wouldn't recommend it at all! Very few signs pointing you in the right direction. You pay the admission fee inside a gift shop, then walk out the door, and there's...More

Almost 3hr drive from SC but it was worth it. Lots of road work all the way and got stuck in long traffic twice. The fee is $7 and they have an observation deck, good walking path & viewing machines. Shoes are must, no trails...More
