The whole village is full of charm. The park adds to the village picturesque landscape. Few statues, with similar style are visible also in the park and on the Main Street. Worth sitting there for few relaxing minutes

The village has little shops and restaurant's of all varieties. Beautiful flowers mark the entrance to Memorial Park. There is an elegance to the park and village that makes it so inviting.

We hiked through this park after eating one night. It's beautiful, it's across from shops right in town, and there are benches to sit on. When we walked through, there were children getting music lessons (violins mostly). Since I played violin for many years, that...More

The entire city of Blowing Rock is in a park like setting along the Blue Ridge Parkway (a linear national park) under Grandfather Mountain (both private and state parks) so it was nice to discover the city didn't just take their surroundings for granted and...More
