Date Ideas in Blowing Rock


Blowing Rock is full of unique, year round date ideas! While everyone knows we love winter and a healthy dose of snow, it looks like winter is leaving us early this year. So, we thought we’d start planning ahead and looking at creative, outdoor friendly, ideas for 2017!

– Hike
With numerous hiking trails in the vicinity, Blowing Rock is the perfect town for active couples. Westglow offers daily guided hikes with every Day Spa Package or overnight stay. Additionally, close proximity to the Blue Ridge Parkway means Blowing Rock and Westglow guests have access to some of the best trails on the East Coast.

– Go Wine Tasting
Of the many things Blowing Rock loves, wine is definitely one of them. April means the entire town gets swept up in Blowing Rock’s Savor Wine Festival, which is an entire weekend of wine, food, and beer-themed events! Click here for more information on that festival.
Sunset and Vine is a local wine shop in downtown Blowing Rock. Most importantly, they’re within walking distance of all downtown shopping! They frequently have wine tastings and their location is perfect for a quick wine pit stop.

– Have Dinner at Rowland’s Restaurant
Rowland’s always guarantees an unforgettable dining experience. During the warmer months we offer select outdoor seating, and having an aperitif on our Portico during “Glow Time” is always magical. As one of the few truly fine dining options in the High Country, Rowland’s is the epitome of romantic restaurants in Blowing Rock. Helpful hint: if you’re celebrating a romantic occasion, we’ll add a little something extra to your evening.
