High Gravity Adventures

Zip, climb, swing, and explore at the High Country's largest aerial adventure destination between Boone and Blowing Rock next to Tweetsie Railroad. Ages 7+ can experience everything HGA offers for one low price, including the High Altitude Zip Line Tour, Blue Ridge Adventure Park, the three-person Giant Swing, and our Mountain Ninja Course.

Linville Caverns

The Boone Area boasts awesome views - but some of those vistas are inside a mountain! The stalactites and stalagmites of the only show cavern in North Carolina are partially handicapped accessible. Open year-round & great for a rainy day.

Mast General Store

Charles Kuralt considered the sagging, scenic 1882 Mast General Store in Valle Crucis a true destination among the nation's general stores. You'll agree. The historical atmosphere is unforgettable, and so is the shopping. This rural emporium that once carried "everything from cradles to caskets" is a trove of Americana and unusual merchandise. There's a branch of Mast in downtown Boone, too. Open year-round.

Mystery Hill

This High Country family favorite amusingly defies the forces of gravity and physics. Mystery Hill's 1903 Dougherty House Heritage Museum is an historic 1898 home featuring authentic insight into 19th-century life in the mountains. Open year-round.

The Blowing Rock

A colorful legend attributed to Native Americans cites the odd updrafts on this spectacular crag that led "Ripley's Believe It or Not" to proclaim it "the only place in the world where snow falls upside down." The Blowing Rock's dramatic views from this cliffside perch, open since 1933 as "North Carolina's oldest travel attraction." Open year-round.
