The peculiar thing about Boone is, while it is a vacation hotspot and a central hub for most of what goes on in the High Country region of the Blue Ridge Mountains, it is mostly without any major attractions of its own. A great deal of the areas that surround Boone NC are filled with the attractions that have become synonymous with the area (i.e. Tweetsie Railroad in Blowing Rock and Grandfather Mountain in nearby Banner Elk) and the attractions that remain in the town of Boone are mostly smaller, less publicized attractions in the area. That is not to say that Boone does not have its fair share of fun and interesting places to check out. Below is a list of some of the smaller, popular attractions in Boone. For information on some of the others that you are probably familiar with, browse the information included on areas such as Blowing Rock, the Blue Ridge Parkway, and areas in Ashe County. I list and sell all kinds of North Carolina Mountain Property near these most loved attractions.
Horn in the West
Horn in the West is probably the oldest Boone Attraction as it probably one of the longest running outdoor dramas featured in Western North Carolina. This past season, the 2011 season, marks the 60th consecutive year that the drama was open. Visitors are treated to an entertaining play that has plenty of plot twists and turns and features the lives of the early settlers in the area.
Boone Bowling Center
Boone Bowling Center is conveniently located right in the heart of Boone near many of the area’s best eateries and retail stores. Stop in for a fun time or check out the festivities that take place every Saturday night when the bowling center cuts off the lights, turns up the tunes and offers Cosmic Bowling.
Fun n Wheels Go Kart Park
Fun N Wheels Go Kart Amusement Park is located right off of Hwy 105 in Boone NC. A favorite place with students and the young at heart, Fun N Wheels features a Go Kart track and a few great rides and arcade games. Open weather permitting.
Magic Mountain Mini Golf
Magic Mountain Mini Golf is the only place to play mini golf in the High Country. During the warm months of spring and summer, students, vacationers and locals head over to this fun spot to enjoy a round of mini golf and spend some time with friends. The layout is probably one of the hardest mini golf designs on the East Coast!
Country Retreat Family Billiards
Country Retreat Family Billiards is more of a family restaurant and eatery than a Boone Attraction, but it is still included because of its fantastic billiards. Here you can play pool and enjoy a family atmosphere without all of the smoke and annoyances usually found at most other places where pool is played. Gather with your friends, get the kids together and head out to Family Billiards. Family Billiards also sells new and used pool tables.
