BLOWING ROCK – One thousand Americans selected and polled by travel booking web site Expedia have rated Blowing Rock one of the 25 best small towns in the country, ranking 16 out of 25 on a list that included Cape Cod, Lake Tahoe and Aspen. It outranked such well-known destinations as Key West, Branson, Missouri and Hershey, Pennsylvania.
Tracy Brown, executive director of the Blowing Rock TDA, was pleased by the town’s honor. “We can boast about our town and region all day long, but when visitors do the talking, it’s real. Blowing Rock is an authentic destination with rich experiences, and we’re thrilled to be recognized in this way and alongside the other great towns across the country,” Brown said.
The Expedia posting read in part, “The village of Blowing Rock, tucked along the Blue Ridge Parkway, is devastatingly gorgeous with its spring wildflowers and rust-colored leaves in autumn — but don’t just stand there, get out and enjoy it! Between hiking trails and adventure courses, this area was made to explore.”
