Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Boone is a small town with a big heart. There is something for just about everyone in this Western North Carolina mountain town. For thrill seekers, take a leap off of a waterfall into one of the many local swimming holes or fly through the air on the longest zipline in North Carolina. For those looking to have a more relaxing adventure through the high country, cruise along the Blue Ridge Parkway and take in the beautiful vistas or sit out on the lawn of the historic Jones House and watch local artists perform during their summer concert series.

There is no shortage of good food in the high country. Try the made-from-scratch eggs benedict at Melanie's or a cinnamon roll the size of your face at Macado's. After your meal, enjoy shopping along King Street from locally owned boutiques like Dancing Moon and antique shops like the Appalachian Antique Mall. Don't forget to grab a bag of candy from the famous Mast General Store while exploring downtown Boone.
