Welcome to Wilkes County! A place of moonshine and NASCAR, a place of mountains and rivers and fishing, a place of smaller and larger towns, and a place of major economic activity. Located in northwest North Carolina, the beautiful Wilkes County will be the first place you truly love calling home. Wine-lovers will feel at home: the region is known for its amazing wineries, being part of Yadkin Valley, an American Viticultural Area. And if you love nature to any degree, the multiple converging mountain ranges, the lakes and reservoirs, such as W. Kerr Scott Reservoir, and the numerous other natural locations, like Cascade Falls and Merle Watson Garden of the Senses, will cover all your hiking, biking, walking, fishing, boating, and swimming needs. Warrior Creek Trails and Blue Ridge Parkway are two especially good locations for the hikers and cyclists out there. Filled with many small towns, such as Wilkesboro and North Wilkesboro, Wayne County provides urban locations that don’t feel too big and too hurried. North Wilkesboro is a great place to try drinks in amazing historical distilleries such as the Copper Barrel Distillery. If you love to connect with nature, wonderful landscapes, and good food as good drinks, Wilkes County is definitely made for you. Wilkes County is also a place filled with great home options. Home options, ranging from spacious townhomes to affordable manufactured homes, cover the entire spectrum of home styles, sizes, prices, and tastes. Custom build on your lot options are also available with one of the 23 builders in the area.
