Southern Living Magazine recently named Boone and Blowing Rock two of the South's Best Small Towns for 2020. A visit to these Blue Ridge Mountain towns reveals 250 years of history, amazing long-range vistas, award-winning eateries, vintners, and craft breweries, with plenty of outdoor adventures to help you soak up fall's final days and colors of the season.

Fall color peaks earliest on the summits of the mountains. The date for that first blush varies, but it usually occurs sometimes around the 5th of October.
