Elkin is Wine Country with amenities, great food and lodging...
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, a children's playground, a softball field and basket ball courts. Residents and visitors alike enjoy beautiful Cedarbrook Country Club golf course nearby.
Elkin has 5 wineries within our town along with dozens more surrounding us. Have you heard our saying, "20 tasting rooms within 20 miles"?...well it's true! Elkin has some of the best hotels and cabin rentals in the area, numerous spas, gorgeous locations for weddings, and annual events that bring our downtown alive (Yadkin Valley Pumpkin Festival in the fall, and Yadkin Valley Wine Festival in the spring). In 2011, we were also the starting point (at Elkin Municipal Park) and host city for Cycle North Carolina "Mountains to the Coast", which brought over 900 cyclists to Elkin for the weekend (search photos under Elkin Photo Blog).
