Blowing Rock, North Carolina

Blowing Rock is a town in North Carolina, which is located in Caldwell and Watauga counties. The population was 1,192 at the 2010 census.  The town of Blowing Rock takes its name from an unusual rock formation which juts over 1,500 feet (460 m) above the Johns River gorge. Due to the rock’s shape and size, wind currents from the gorge often blow vertically, causing light objects to float upwards into the sky.  Blowing Rock is the site of Glen Burney Falls and Glen Marie Falls. Another tourist attraction in Blowing Rock is the Tweetsie Railroad theme park, which is home to the only remaining fully functional steam engine train in North Carolina. Visitors to Tweetsie can ride the train for three miles and enjoy the mountain scenery; the park also contains traditional amusement-park rides and attractions.
