Boone NC Shopping

The area of North Carolina in which our Banner Elk Vacation Rentals are located is a popular spot for shopping. Many of the people who call these mountains home are artists of some kind or another. Some are longtime residents who specialize in traditional Appalachian arts and crafts while others have moved to this area from other parts of the country to take advantage of the inspiring scenery and ideal Banner Elk Weather that abounds around our Condo Rentals in Banner Elk NC. Arts and crafts, however, are not the only souvenirs you can bring home with you when you leave our Sugar Mountain Lodging. The Highlands at Sugar is located just a short drive from the city of Boone, and visitors are pleasantly surprised by the number of mainstream stores they find at our two local malls. Antiquing is also popular in these parts, and the many antique shops that line our quaint streets are perfect places to participate in this pastime. We guarantee that you can find almost anything your heart desires within just a short drive of our Sugar Mountain Real Estate Rentals.

Boone Mall

The Boone Mall is about a half an hour away from our Banner Elk Vacation Rentals and is stocked with everything you’d expect from a mall in a major city. Catering to the university crowd, this mall features all of the hippest stores, as well as some specialty shops that you won’t find anywhere else. With major department stores like Belk, popular shops like Old Navy, and great places to look for shoes, books, and athletic apparel, you can find anything you want at the Boone Mall. After a busy day of shopping, you’ll want to refuel at Panera or one of the other restaurants located at the Boone Mall.

Shoppes at the Parkway

Also in the vicinity of our Sugar Mountain Real Estate Rentals is Tanger’s Shoppes on the Parkway. This upscale outlet mall is full of deals and steals from over 30 of today’s top manufacturers, including Banana Republic, Coach, Liz Claiborne, Gap, PacSun, Calvin Klein, and many more. Whether you’re looking for shoes, apparel, or accessories, you’ll find it here. Once you’re all shopped out, you may even want to treat yourself to an ice cream cone or a delicious handmade sweet at Kilwin’s, or enjoy a meal at Cheeseburger’s Grill.
