  • #1 Boone – King St. I love walking down King St. It is the historic interest, mixed with the vibrance of Appalachian State University.
  • #2 Blue Ridge Parkway – It is beautiful regardless of which season. I particular love fall. The fall foliage on the parkway is breathtaking! I seem to find a new favorite spot each time I visit.
  • #3   Howards Knobb – This overlooks the entire town extending far into the distance. You can see the university laid out in front of you and the beautiful mountain backdrop.

For comfort southern food – try Proper. It is a small little house at the end of King St. The menu changes daily.

For Chinese food – try Taste Grill – their walnut shrimp is the best! No other restaurant can beat it.

For the authentic college experience – get a shake from Cookout. There are 40 of them with unlimited combination. So go wild!
