“closest coffee shop, nice ski-lodge type atmosphere if you can snag one of the cozy sofas”
“Kids love this! We have several gem mines in the High Country, but this is the biggest one and closest one to the cabin (maybe six to seven minutes away). Cheapest bucket size is $16 but shareable. Open every day from 9:00a-5:00p and 10:00a-4:00p in winter.”
“Maggie does beautiful work inspired by the surroundings of her home in the woods in Foscoe. Maggie's pottery has gained an enthusiastic audience at galleries state-wide and at juried craft and music festivals. For the last ten years she has also been teaching in the same program where she developed her skills, the ASU Craft Enrichment program. Her shop is only a few minutes away toward Boone! Note of interest: She was Michael Jackson's cook at Neverland! Open Wednesdays - Saturdays from 10:00a-5:00p and Sundays from 1:00p-5:00p. Closed on Mondays & Tuesdays.”
Rock Climbing Spot
“Located in downtown Boone, their climbing tower is the starting point of their 2 1/2-hour climbing course called "Tower to Rock" where students will learn about equipment, belaying, footwork, knots and much more. The course ends with a short hike to the base of a "real rock" where you'll climb and rappel:) They also offer climbing camps for kids in the summer!”
“What began as the dream of a small group of craftspeople in 1975 continues today in a very personal and continually-changing environment. The history of Hands Gallery Co-op is as varied and intriguing as the artists who have come and gone over the years. This is a great arts & crafts co-op to shop for a piece of our mountains to take back home:) Open daily from 10:00a-6:00p.”
