This weekend sure was a fun one! Sometimes it’s good to just get out of town for a change of scenery and that’s exactly what we did on Saturday. Ryan & I, along with our friends Chase & Whitney, headed to the mountains of NC for a little hiking trip. I was excited to partner to partner with Southeast Toyota to test drive the new 2016 Toyota Camry on the trip. I drive a smaller, compact car so it was nice to have something a little more spacious for the weekend. They updated the body style this year and it is super sleek. Some of my other favorite features are the voice recognition, Bluetooth capability, and of course the backup camera.
After grabbing some Starbucks, we made our way up the mountain and decided to stop in Blowing Rock for lunch. I had been to the outlets there, but had never made my way into this cute little town. We ate at the Blowing Rock Brewing Company and it was such a cozy, mountain-esque restaurant. It was pretty cold outside so I had to order the tomato red pepper soup!
I hadn’t been to Linville Falls since middle school so I was excited to visit again. Luckily, the hike wasn’t too long or strenuous and there were several lookouts where we could see the waterfalls. The fresh air and peaceful surroundings were a nice change from the hustle and bustle of the city.
