About Wilkes

Wilkes County is located in the beautiful foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and is the perfect place to become "rooted" so that your family can grow.  Wilkes County is a place where no one is a stranger.  You may see someone wave to you on the road and think, "Do I know him/her from somewhere?" Odds are, you don't. A friendly greeting is a common custom in this friendly Western NC County.

A variety of shopping is offered from small local businesses to large retail chains. Right downtown from Kohls, Walmart, Lowes, and Belk you will find Ivy Ridge Traditions, Rebels, Cook's and Aunt B's Attic.  For those more interested in the great outdoors Wilkes County offers multiple avenues to enjoy the beauty of nature.  Kerr Scott Dam and Reservoir offers opportunities for boating, kayaking and swimming as well as numerous footpaths for hiking and biking. (Check out our Kerr Scott Lake properties!)  The Yadkin River Greenway is another great way to take advantage of engaging exercise with nature. This paved pathway intertwines itself throughout the Wilkesboro's to allow for a scenic view and lots of opportunities for family fun.
