6. We loved Blowing Rock. Very cool little town.

It had a very good Mexican restaurant with a huge outdoor patio in the heart of town and a lovely little park with a gazebo. They were posing for wedding photos by the pond when we were there. Great shops, too.

Where else are you going?

Asheville is the best little hipster town and Valle Crucis has the Mast Farm Inn which is a very nice dinner place. Boone is a super great little college town.

I'm jealous! Have a great relaxing time!!
