Summer is here and in the high country of North Carolina there are a lot of summer activities to be had! We pulled together some of our favorite summer activities in our neighboring town, Blowing Rock. Check them out, it’s summer fun for everyone.
Blocks away from downtown Blowing Rock, 3 waterfalls await your trek down the Glen Burney trail in Annie Cannon Park! Several path options allow for your choice of calm or strenuous hiking for an adventure in beautiful, luscious natural scenery! It’s a tough hike (think very steep natural stairs) so it might not be for everyone including very small children.
Next up is ziplining! Zipline and high-wire fun await you at High Gravity Adventures Aerial Adventure Park near Blowing Rock! There’s fun for the whole family with courses available for ages 4 and up, and there’s even a 3-person giant swing to let you experience the thrill with 2 friends!
This family-friendly theme park includes an excellent three-mile ride through the North Carolina mountains on a real steam-powered train! Enjoy amusement rides, live entertainment, exciting shopping, and a wild west petting zoo! Make sure to come back in the fall and winter too – themed train rides are always a ton of fun.
Who doesn’t love horses? Enjoy incredible, natural trails in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains near scenic Beach Mountain. With horses ready to ride for riders of every ability level, you’re sure to enjoy your time strolling through nature!
Finally, are you looking for something more intermediate? Try any of three difficulty levels as you traverse the Discovery Course and conquer your fear of heights! If you have a thrill seeker in your group, this might be the perfect activity!
We still have a couple of spots left for summer, book with us today to soak up all of the summer fun.
