About

Boone gives you a million ways to step away from your everyday routine.

Boone is so much more than a mountain college town, although we're proud that Appalachian State University calls us home. From challenging mountain sports to cozy mountain cabins, from festivals and art galleries to Tweetsie Railroad Theme Park, Boone is where adrenaline junkies and leisure seekers, alike, flock for the perfect getaway any time of year.

Our cool spring temperatures, mild summers, colorful autumns, and snowy winters hold the promise of unforgettable experiences for visitors of all ages and interests. Downtown Boone, with its one-of-a-kind shops, restaurants, and boutiques, retains the nostalgic feel of the town's early days, while the architecture of Appalachian State University serves as a modern backdrop for this popular mountain playground.
