If I had to describe Blowing Rock in one word it would be, charming. There’s something that feels undiscovered, almost protected about this quaint town tucked away in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
The pace moves a little slower and everyone is sure to greet you with a warm, smiling face. The only noise you hear in the background is the birds chirping or the live bluegrass music playing out on the lawn. It’s a peaceful place that feels inviting to all who pass through.
To be honest, I didn’t know what to expect of the city other than the famous cliff that the town is named after. But what I found was so much more. Blowing Rock is truly a great place to rest and explore North Carolina’s surrounding beauty.

Are you guys ready for a stupid easy recipe? It’s summertime, there’s stuff to do outside and there isn’t a ton of time to spend in the kitchen. Stupid easy it is.
Funny enough this recipe was inspired by takeout from a local restaurant here in Athens. I was chatting with one of my girlfriends about how there isn’t much for healthy takeout options here and she recommended trying this grilled vegetable plate at one of the Mediterranean restaurants nearby.
