The Blowing Rock

The Blowing Rock has long lured visitors to the precipitous edge of a 4,000-foot drop-off to experience the legend of the Rock.

North Carolina's "Oldest Travel Attraction"

colorful legend attributed to Native Americans explains the odd updrafts on this spectacular crag that led "Ripley's Believe It or Not" to proclaim it "the only place in the world where snow falls upside down." The Blowing Rock's dramatic views have been enjoyed from this cliffside perch since 1933 as "North Carolina's oldest travel attraction."
