Hickory is a city located primarily in Catawba County, North Carolina, with parts in adjoining Burke and Caldwell counties. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Hickory: Boone (Hickory Ridge Living History Museum & River Rafting & Tubing), Lake Lure (The Gem Mine, Zipline, &more) and Blowing Rock (Moses H. Cone Memorial Park & Bolick and Traditions Pottery). Make the 20th (Mon) an awe-inspiring day at Pisgah National Forest. There's much more to do: take in the awesome beauty at Grandfather Mountain, admire the masterpieces at Hickory Museum of Art, delve into the distant past at Henry River Mill Village, and don't miss a visit to Harper House/ Hickory History Center.
