Thanksgiving in Boone

Thanksgiving Day Meals around Boone

The holidays are somehow a little more special in a cozy mountain cabin or hotel. It's the perfect time of year to start a new or continue an old family tradition with a visit to a Choose and Cut Tree Farm and a head start on holiday shopping. Drive to a jaw-dropping Appalachian Mountain overlook with a chance for a flurry of snow. Take all the stress off of cooking for the holiday and pre-order a meal or make a reservation at one of the following High Country restaurants.
