Area Attractions in Elkin, NC


AREA ATTRACTIONS are plentiful in the Foothills and Yadkin Valley region of NC! We have so many beautiful things to see and do, and we are just a short drive from most anywhere in the Triad and Piedmont areas. Elkin is a great day trip or weekend getaway spot or as part of a ‘staycation’. There are many things to do here, whether you are into hiking, paddling, biking, art, music, crafting, wellness or checking out the area wineries and local breweries or just chilling out, we can help you with that.  There are around 30 vineyards within a 30 min drive of RFRR.

This region of NC is lovely no matter the season and is a perfect place to create and make memories that will last a lifetime.

Stone Mtn State Park is definitely an awesome attraction and one of NC’s best state parks with beautiful scenery, wildlife, and trails in varying difficulties along with several beautiful waterfalls.

The Yadkin River is one of the longest rivers in North Carolina.  There are great trails located along the river near Elkin and Jonesville, N.C running between Surry, Wilkes and Yadkin counties. We have both hiking and biking trails, and a few for horse lovers too.
