The Destination
Spanning 250 miles along North Carolina's rugged expanse, the Blue Ridge Parkway puts the best of the state's picturesque views within the confines of a windshield. Autumn shades fan out in a panorama in the fall, only to be replaced by the multi-hued blooms of wildflowers in the spring. A short ways off the parkway is the small town of Blowing Rock, where views give way to adventure. When the trees are dusted in white snow, skiing, snowboarding, and tubing lead to meandering strolls in the twinkling downtown. In warmer months, white-water rafting, horseback riding, and hiking are the activities of choice—followed, of course, by ice cream scoops in town.

The Digs
Located within walking distance of Blowing Rock's Main Street, the Hillwinds Inn of Blowing Rock is a cozy and traditional property that has the atmosphere of a family home. The recently renovated guest rooms are individually decorated, and feature double- or king-size beds and 30-inch flat-screen TVs.

Sit on the covered porch or sink into the lobby's leather couch with coffee in hand before enjoying a continental breakfast. Once you've finished, visit the town's art and history museum, hunt for antiques downtown, or strap on your skis at a nearby mountain resort. Regardless of the season, Blowing Rock has something for everyone.

  • "Blowing Rock, a draw for mountain visitors since the 1880s, has retained the flavor of a quiet New England village, with stone walls and buildings with wood shakes or bark siding."
