Nestled high in the North Carolina Mountains is the quaint village of Blowing Rock. Pretty any time of the year, winter – when the town is blanketed in white fluffy snow – is the best time to visit. Travel and Leisure agrees, having named Blowing Rock one of “America’s Prettiest Winter Towns” in their December issue. At 4,000 feet with some of the best mountain views in the state, Blowing Rock embraces winter activities, with skiing nearby, outdoor adventures, shopping and an annual Winterfest event.
