Hickory is a city located primarily in Catawba County, North Carolina, with parts in adjoining Burke and Caldwell counties. Bring the kids along to Grandfather Mountain and River Rafting & Tubing. Change things up with these side-trips from Hickory: Blowing Rock (Doc's Rocks Gem Mine, Tweetsie Railroad, & more), Virginia Creeper Trail (in Damascus) and Hendersonville (Elijah Mountain Gem Mine & Team ECCO Ocean Center & Aquarium). There's lots more to do: take in panoramic vistas at Chimney Rock State Park, explore the fascinating underground world of Linville Caverns, enjoy some diversion at Hickory Crawdads / L.P. Frans Stadium, and admire all the interesting features of Kyle Busch Motorsports.

For where to stay, reviews, photos, and tourist information, read Hickory attractions planner .

In July, daily temperatures in Hickory can reach 88°F, while at night they dip to 69°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
