Hickory, North Carolina Travel Guide

Located between Charlotte and Asheville at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains lies Hickory, one of North Carolina’s most prized hidden gems. For three years running, Hickory, NC has been given the status of an All-American City, an award that recognizes the civic engagement and the ability to come together to tackle social problems. Moreover, Hickory was recently named the 10th best place to live in the United States. Why? It’s tough to put Hickory in a box. Even though there are only 35,000 people, it has the qualities of a small town and the drive of a big city. It boasts a thriving arts community, a bustling entertainment sector, lots of recreational activities, tons of shopping, and jaw-dropping natural beauty.

Things to Do in Hickory, North Carolina

First thing on your agenda should be to visit the beating heart of Hickory -- Union Square. Here you’ll find a park with large stretches of grass, outdoor seating, lots of restaurants and cafes, and live music during summer months. If you’re jealous of European cities when it comes to town squares that bring the community together, Hickory is a good option close to home.

Located in Union Square, the Hickory Farmer’s Market is also a good stop off for your vacation. Swing by to peruse aisles of fresh produce, trinkets, and antique finds while nibbling on some delicious snacks.

Next, make your way over to the Hickory Museum of Art. We mentioned the town’s arts scene, and this museum is the heart of it. The museum offers a permanent collection of 19th and 20th-century works, and it’s also attached to the lesser-known but equally cool science museum.

Locals and frequent visitors of Hickory will tell you that it’s a town for lovers. There are numerous romantic things to do for the romantics in each of us. Retreat to one of the idyllic inns on the outskirts of town, take a dinner cruise on Lake Hickory, do some window shopping near Union Square, or take a hike in the nearby state park.

Other than that, Hickory is home to its own university, a world-famous racing track, an airplane museum, a growing nightlife scene, golf courses, and two excellent beer festivals. You won’t be at a loss for things to do.
