Blowing Rock named top summer home location
By Jeff Eason
It isn’t every day that a national magazine mentions Blowing Rock in the same breath as the South of France, but that’s exactly what happened this week.
Haute Living magazine’s July issue contains a feature titled “The Best 6 Locations for a Summer Home.” In the article, it lists Blowing Rock as the number two summer home destination, just behind the Hamptons, a resort area of New York State.
Rounding out the list are #3 The South of France, #4 Mykonos, Greece, #5 Telluride, Colorado and #6 White Fish, Montana.
In describing the village, the editors of Haute Living wrote, “Home to the Blowing Rock, a huge cliff over 4,000 feet above sea level, this North Carolina town is genuinely Miami north thanks to a few key developers and a steady buying of homes by Miamians with fond memories of summer camp.
“The town is quaint, the summers are cool and there are endless outdoor activities that require no Louboutins.”
Louboutins are fancy French footwear designed by Charles Louboutin. They are currently in vogue and were mentioned in the song “Work” by Australian rapper Iggy Azalea who sang, “Walk a mile in these Louboutins.”
