Blowing Rock


Talk about truth in advertising. Stop at this natural attraction, and you’ll understand how it and its nearby town got their names. When you stand at the precipice 3,000 feet above the Johns River Gorge, powerful gusts of wind sweep up and over the rim like invisible ocean waves. Hours are always weather permitting; call ahead before you visit.
