The town of chimney rock is a small town on hwy 64 in the mountains of NC. What We like about Chimney rock is that its like going back in time. Yes, they have modern conveniences but the town doesn’t allow chain business, only Mom & Pop operations. The town has on two lane road running through it. Mountains on one side and the “Rocky Broad River” on the other side. They boost that they are the #1 destination in the NC Mountains. They have about 15-18 shops that are always a joy to walk through. Looking for a motels, they have about 12-15.to choose from. The main attraction for many is Chimney Rock Park” located in the center of the village. There is a fee to go to the park, but it’s worth the view, great walking trails, picnic area and a waterfalls. You won’t go way hungry either. They have about 8-10 choices of restaurants and eateries. We almost always stop and get Hershey’s ice cream from the “Hershey ice cream store. Have stopped counting how many times we have been here. We live 6 hours away, a must stop, for lunch, shopping or just the peace and quiet..
