When the day's activities are done, it's time to change from hiking boots and shorts into something more appropriate for hitting the town. And there's plenty of town to hit. No matter what your interests, there's a spot in the High Country featuring your favorite leisure time activity.

Availability of libations varies from community to community. Some areas such as Deep Gap are totally dry. In Boone you can purchase beer and wine in a restaurant but can only buy liquor in state-run ABC stores. Some restaurants have "brown bag" permits allowing you to bring your own liquor and have drinks made by restaurant staff.

Banner Elk and Blowing Rock restaurants have beer, wine and liquor by-the-drink available for purchase. The selection available is up to the individual restaurant.
