Yippee Ki-Yay! It's Time to Find Your Inner Cowboy in the NC Mountains

I have shared this little secret before, but when I was a little girl I aspired to be a "can-can" girl in one of the wild west theme parks in the North Carolina mountains.  Come on! Fish-net stockings, colorful skirts, and high-heel dance shoes.   Why not? 

Um! I think someone else may have the same thoughts.

Tweetsie Railroad in Blowing Rock, North Carolina has officially opened for the season.  We spent a day there last May, and had a great time. 



North Carolina’s first theme park, nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains in Blowing Rock, will treat guests to Wild West family adventure this year through Sunday, November 3. Golden Rail Season Passes are now available for purchase at Tweetsie.com.


Visitors enjoy Wild West action, exciting amusement rides, live shows and more all season long. Hop aboard a train pulled by Tweetsie’s historic steam-powered locomotives for an unforgettable three-mile Wild West adventure. Explore the streets of Tweetsie Railroad’s very own Western town, complete with cowboys and Indians. Be a part of the show at Diamond Lil’s Can-Can Revue, Hopper and Porter’s™ Musical Celebration and the Miner’s Mountain Magic Show. Experience the gold rush while panning for gold at Miner’s Mountain, get to know the friendly critters at the Deer Park, and much more. 


Blowing Rock, NC

I love the Blowing Rock/Boone area of North Carolina.  It is a beautiful area.  Be sure to revisit my series on the area from last year.

One of my favorite Inns in the area is Mast Farm Inn in Valle Crucis, NC.  The Inn was featured as a "Pack Your Bags" in May of last year.  It's a perfect place to relax, sip a coffee, and take in the cool, summer mountain breeze. 


I have also stayed at the Courtyard Marriott in Boone, NC and was very pleased with my stay. It is the area's newest chain hotel.  

Summer is just around the corner!
