  Wilkes County
Wilkes County is located at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Western North Carolina. The area has several opportunities for recreational activities and sightseeing. Wilkes is fairly close to Charlotte, Winston Salem, and the mountain area known as the High Country.

Boomer, Purlear, Miller’s Creek, North Wilkesboro, Moravian Falls, and Windy Gap are all towns and neighborhoods in Wilkes County.

Since Wilkes County is fairly close to the High Country, there are many activities for the whole family to enjoy in the mountains. Wilkes County is located near Boone, Banner Elk and Blowing Rock so there are plenty of attractions and things to do. For the outdoor lovers, there is incredible hiking, biking and sightseeing in the mountains, as well as Kerr Scott Lake for those that want to have fun on the water. Merlefest is also a very popular bluegrass festival held every year in Wilkesboro to honor the late Merle Watson, son of the famous award winning bluegrass singer Doc Watson.
