New To Hickory?

Welcome to Hickory! Whether you’ve just graduated from college or recently moved here from somewhere else, we’re glad you’re here. Hickory has many of the amenities of a larger city, with the intimate feel of a small town. Hickory is a city at a crossroads…literally. We’re the nexus of central North Carolina, only a short drive to Charlotte, Winston-Salem, Asheville, and everywhere in between. We have mountains, a lake, nightlife, golf courses, city parks, churches, family activities, lots of shopping and dining options, affordable cost of living, and opportunity for growth!

We have put together a list of resources to help you learn your way around, find the things you need, and get connected. If you can’t find something, let us know and we’ll try to help. And we’re always looking for new things to add to our list, so suggestions are welcome!
