This year we had the pleasure of making our annual trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains with two our close couple friends to enjoy the Fall Foliage. I put together an itinerary for the trip that I believe is pretty much perfect for enjoying the Fall weather… enjoy :) 

I highly recommend keeping track of the Fall Foliage report as October gets near and then planning to make a trip for when peak leaves are showing up! 


Luckily, our in-laws happen to live in Boone, NC and so we stay with them during our trips to the mountains. 


Trip to the Pumpkin Patch - Harvest Farm 
I highly recommend this pumpkin patch in Valle Crucis, NC. It’s a 30-minute drive from Boone but you will experience some spectacular views with the mountains as a back-drop. They have pumpkins out front as well as a real pumpkin patch that you can walk through and pick your own pumpkin if you’d like! There is a 7-acre corn maze as well as a hayride that you can participate in.

Drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway and Hike Rough Ridge
Rough Ridge is one of the easier hikes that you can do in Boone, NC to get a spectacular view! Make sure to wear proper shoes, you’ll want to as you’ll be navigating some rocks up and downhill. You’ll also want to bundle up as it gets a bit windy up there! 


Watch Hocus Pocus
Sadly, I fell asleep when Hocus Pocus came on but apparently, this is like THE classic Halloween movie. I still haven’t watched it… maybe next year :) 


Joe’s mother is an amazing cook so when we go to Boone, NC we actually end up eating gourmet meals made in the Nenow Kitchen. However, I do have some recommendations for restaurants that we love up there! 

Come Back Shack - you are guaranteed to get an amazing burger here. There are so many different combinations to get you the perfect burger that you want. A perfect lunch spot! 

The Pedalin’ Pig  - located in the stunning Banner Elk, NC this is the BEST barbecue. So good in fact that we had it catered for our wedding. You won’t regret grabbing a meal here :) 

GameKeeper  - If you are celebrating a special occasion or want a fancy dinner out, I cannot recommend this spot enough. Joe and I still to this day rave about the blue berry cobbler with toasted pine nuts that we got there a few years ago. Beware, if you are going to have a cocktail during dinner you may want a ride from the restaurant. The drive there is a bit tricky! 

Proper  - this is also another fabulous spot to get an amazing brunch or for a date night! Homestyle Southern Cooking in the Blue Ridge Mountains, it doesn’t get better than that! 

Stick Boy Bread Co -  We love to come here for a coffee on a Saturday morning and to grab some scrumptious bread to enjoy back home. Their bread is baked fresh daily and I always grab a loaf whenever we leave Boone, NC. It’s the BEST bread that you’ll have. Their sourdough bread is amazing. 

Black Cat Burrito  - I always love me a good burrito and Black CAT WILL MAKE YOU ONE. 

There are plenty other restaurants that you may love in Boone, NC but these are our personal favorites. And you know how much we love food, so take it with a grain of salt but also trust me, these recommendations are the bomb dot com.

  1. I shot a wedding at this place in May of last year and the couple was thrilled! They had the ceremony out on the patio then came inside to a long-table format reception which was perfect. The cake table at Seattle Wedding venues was backed by some stunning views.
