“Paying homage to Daniel Boone”

The Daniel Boone Native Gardens, located near downtown Boone, N.C., contain an outstanding collection of native trees, shrubs, and wildflowers. Hundreds of plant varieties provide a progression of blooms throughout the growing season. Opened in 1963, the three-acre Daniel Boone Native Gardens are an educational and conservation effort to nurture rare or endangered plant species. A project of the Garden Club of N.C., Inc., these public gardens comprise a bog garden, fern garden, rhododendron grove, rock garden, rock wishing well, vine-covered arbor, pond alongside the historic Squire Boone Cabin, and several grand vistas. Wrought-iron gates at the entrance were made by a descendant of Daniel Boone, who hunted in the area.

The gated garden located in downtown Boone is open year-round and makes for an excellent place to take a stroll on a sunny day. If you’re in town during butterfly season, check out the butterfly garden!

We think a visit here is one of the best things to do in Boone, NC!
