Welcome to wine country... where you'll find friendly charm
and endless possibilities...
Elkin, North Carolina is located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. We are centrally located between Mount Airy and Charlotte, Boone and Winston-Salem, along Interstate-77, only 20 minutes away from the Blue Ridge Parkway and Stone Mountain State Park. Our quaint historical downtown is situated along the Yadkin River with shopping and restaurants.
Nearby, Elkin Municipal Park has a community center with 8 tennis courts and a pool, walking trails along Big Elkin Creek, a children's playground, a softball field, and basket ball courts. Residents and visitors alike enjoy beautiful Cedarbrook Country Club golf course nearby for a leisurely game of golf. Hiking and biking trails are scattered throughout town and paddlers enjoy docking and camping in Elkin at Crater Park, downtown.
Elkin has 6 wineries within our town along with dozens more in the Yadkin Valley Wine Region. Have you heard our saying, "20 tasting rooms within 20 miles"?...well it's true and that number grows every day! Elkin has the #1 rated Fairfield Inn in the region, and lots of cozy cabin rentals minutes from downtown, numerous spas, gorgeous venues for weddings, and annual events that bring our downtown alive (Cruise events, Tour de Yadkin, Fiddlers by the River, Yadkin Valley Wine Festival in the spring and the Yadkin Valley Pumpkin Festival in the fall ). We've been the starting point and host city for Cycle North Carolina "Mountains to the Coast", which brings over 900 cyclists to Elkin for the weekend and we are a newly designated trail town for the NC Mountain to Sea Trial. We also offer Civil War and Revolutionary War markers and section of The Overmountain Victory Trail runs through town.
