Get to Know Boone
As the heart of the High Country, Boone tends to be the hub of local life in the High Country. The vibrant and historic King Street is the place to spend a Sunday afternoon or enjoy the local art scene while wandering through downtown for First Friday Art Crawl. As the largest employer in Boone, Appalachian State University brings a youthful and unique vibe to the colorful mountain town. Boone is also home to Samaritan’s Purse, ECRS Point of Sale Software Company, and Wine to Water, an international non-profit with a mission to bring water and dignity to communities around the world.
Staying in Boone
We are excited to welcome a brand new boutique hotel in downtown Boone (complete with rooftop bar!!). The Horton Hotel is set to open later this year – and we know this will be a hot spot for visitors looking to enjoy the convenience of a downtown stay at an elegant and unique boutique hotel! For those looking for more space to stretch out and enjoy the space of the High Country, gorgeous mountain vacation homes abound – we suggest booking a home with a view, and a hot tub!
Dining in Boone
Boone offers a host of tasty restaurants – everything from an affordable yet hip pub-food scene to homemade southern delicacies served on the porch of a historic old home. There is something for the vegan, and some for the barbecue lover. A local favorite is a soulful tex-mex-esque joint in a strip mall – Coyote Kitchen is a hot spot for those who know the area.
