Blowing Rock is a town in North Carolina, situated in both Caldwell and Watauga counties. The population was 1,418 at the 2000 census. However, during the summer the town's population increases to about 10,000.

The Caldwell County portion of Blowing Rock is part of the HickoryLenoirMorganton Metropolitan Statistical Area, while the Watauga County portion is part of the Boone Metropolitan Statistical Area.

The town has a vibrant economy based in part on tourism. A small, quaint downtown area is characterized by numerous shops of varying types, a pleasant public park, and diverse restaurants. The mountainous terrain provides scenic views with long-range vistas from several locations around town, including the Blowing Rock itself.
