If you want stunning views coupled with plenty of fun activities at your fingertips, check out Julian Price Memorial Park in Blowing Rock. Julian Price Park and Lake is a top destination along the section of the Blue Ridge Parkway that snakes its way through the High Country. This location features something that others in the area do not, boating as well as hiking, fishing, and a lot more. The scenery is truly breathtaking and very much like something that you might find on a postcard of scenes from the area.
You can rent a canoe or other non-motorized boat and paddle around the beautiful lake, or fish from the dock located on the lake. For those looking for a quick hike, the Price Lake Trail which leads around the lake is a nice leg stretcher while other longer trails such as the Boone Fork, Green Knob, and Tanawha Trails are all accessible from this park locale.
Price Park Boone NC is located nearby to the Moses H. Cone Manor home, a historic location along the Blue Ridge Parkway which also houses the Parkway Craft Center. If you are looking for a fun activity one afternoon during the summer or fall months visit the Parkway Craft Center to view the artists currently demonstrating their talents. Each day a different artist takes up a spot on the front porch within the manor home and practices their craft.
Price Lake in between Boone and Blowing Rock is one of the only places in the area that you can enjoy boating in non-motorized boats. There really is not another lake locale as close in to Boone and our location of the High Country as Price Lake. Make sure to bring along your camera as this is one of the most beautiful places you’ll visit on your trip.
