Week in Blowing Rock with teenagers

We have a timeshare and Blowing Rock, NC and is available for the week of spring break in March. I don't know anything about this area. Sounds like mostly outdoor hiking kind of place. Would there be other things to do with our 17 yr old daughters? We like artsy, funky , unique experiences. Not into chain stores/ Restaurants.

Think this would be a good place to visit? Thanks for any advice!

The weather in March could become an issue but I think it would be a good choice. Thanks to Appalacian State University and the surrounding ski resorts, the Boone/Blowing Rock area is quite active all year round. With teenage daughters I think you would particularly enjoy shopping along King Street in Boone, as well as Main Street in Blowing Rock. I would also recommend a visit to Banner Elk where you may even want to try skiing. There are plenty of good restaurants, including some with live music. Hiking opportunities do abound but their are plenty of other things to do as well

Is your time share in Blowing Rock? If so, you can most likely walk all around the village. The area is known for art, pottery, jewelry, local crafts, antiques beautiful scenery. The shops in Blowing Rock, Boone and surrounding area are local and some a most unique. The two towns are just 7 miles apart. Another area to explore is Valle Crucis. You will find the original Mast General Store and it is always fun to explore.

Asheville is 2 hours and always fun for a day. Abingdon, Va. is about 1.5 to 2 hours away and has the Barter Theatre and some nice restaurants, if you decide you want to see more of the area. There is also skiing and snow tubing, depending on the weather. If it is cold enough, the mountains make their own snow, if needed.

Below is a list of activities you want to consider, depending on the weather.
