Caldwell County is just the spot for people who want it all – nature in its quiet beauty and the charm of small-town life. Nestled at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the county is home to the wilderness area of Wilson Creek, a federally designated “Wild and Scenic River,” where you can enjoy waterfalls, fishing, camping, ATV trails, hiking, and more. Caldwell County also boasts majestic mountain views through all the distinct changing seasons, a bevy of historical sites, and art opportunities including an annual outdoor sculpture competition that draws artists from throughout the Southeast. The J.E. Broyhill Civic Center offers a full schedule of entertainment events throughout the year, including national tour acts and shows. NC Hwy 268 is designated as a “Scenic By-Way” one of many beautiful drives in Caldwell County. The Yadkin Valley corridor follows along the Over Mountain Victory Trail. Enjoy festivals and events, music venues, wineries, breweries, and meadery… there is so much to explore in beautiful Caldwell County.

Conveniently and centrally located, it is only a short distance to the mountains where you can drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Head in the other direction and in less than 90 minutes, you’ll be in the state’s largest city and location of Charlotte Douglas International Airport. Charlotte is the home of the Carolina Panthers professional football team and the Charlotte Hornets professional basketball team. So, whether you’re looking to experience the adventure of an active nature in your next home, explore the restful beauty of a genteel southern town or head off to the big city, Caldwell County is the place to start your journey.
