Blowing Rock is charming. Rock walls, flowers, the main street is pretty and lined with fun little shops, some you need a deep pocket for, some maybe not. Go, poke about, have a blast!

And we enjoyed poking around the little strip of a town there at Banner Elk. We ate at the Cafe and the Stonewall's Steak House. Unfortunately Stonewall's has an impressive curb side presentation but the food was just okay. While I would eat there again, I'd probably try something else first. The Cafe offered a good breakfast and a relaxed atmosphere and good coffee, I'll visit there again. Inside Stonewalls was a gourmet olive oil place called "The Art of Oil." There I bought some infused oils to leave for our hosts at the house and met a fabulous young lady named Jordan who is also a ski instructor at Sugar. Maybe I'll bump into her again some day.
