We drove through Blowing Rock, but due to a screaming baby we didn't get to stop and enjoy it and have wanted to go back. We have yet to find a place to stay, but due to costs may end up staying in Boone instead and just making a day of it in Blowing Rock. So far from reading this forum I have found the park in the middle of town to play, Cannon Gardens and Broyhill Park. Anything else that might be nice to see for us and ok for a little boy? Suggestions on kid friendly places to eat? Most places seem too fancy for him (and us :) ). Oh, and someone mentioned the Beacon Heights trail...FANTASTIC! I have been trying to find easier trails with nice views and that is perfect.
Oh, and The Blowing Rock...thoughts on it? Worth the money? Safe for kids? Do you just go and look at a rock or is there more there? I checked their site and didn't find much info really. Thanks in advance!
