What does it take to become a North Carolina Certified Retirement Community? It takes an exceptional measure of natural diversity that brings together mountain living with riverfront views, local beaches, and quick access to nearby bustling cities all within a stone’s throw plus a range of amenities, services, and opportunities for retirees to enjoy active and productive lives.

It means you’re one of the best retirement places in North Carolina for retirees, and you’re proudly located in an area of the state known as much for its warm hospitality as for its warm climate.

But it’s not enough just to be beautiful and abundant in amenities. If you want to receive that official designation as a North Carolina Certified Retirement Community, you’ve also got to meet some strict criteria in areas such as infrastructure, health care, cultural offerings, and more. With such stringent guidelines, it’s no wonder that only 14 North Carolina cities have been included on this prestigious list.

And we’re proud to say that Lenoir happens to be one of them! Known as the crossroads of the best of North Carolina,” Lenoir has been officially recognized by the state as one of the best retirement places in North Carolina for retirees. State officials have highlighted Lenoir’s wide variety of outdoor activities and ample volunteer opportunities as two of the many qualities that make Lenoir great. Other qualities of Lenoir featured in RETIRE NC’s Certified Retirement Communities Guide include:

Lenoir boasts a spectacular setting among the picturesque Blue Ridge Mountains, enhanced by the Lenoir Greenway, Catawba River Valley and Wilson Creek, all of which offer year-round opportunities for outdoor activities, including abundant fishing, walking paths, hiking and biking trails, boating, and kayaking.  

Music & Art         
Lenoir enjoys a rich musical heritage, with genres that appeal to all musical tastes (from bluegrass to jazz to classical) featured on concert stages and in seasonal festivals throughout the year. Art lovers enjoy Lenoir’s outdoor art walks and the charming galleries filled with original artwork, including oil paintings, tapestries, pottery, and photography exhibits. But the city is most known for its sculptures, which are featured both indoors and out, and celebrated each year in Lenoir’s Annual Sculpture Celebration, which attracts artists from all over the country.  

Caring Community         
Lenoir is both friendly and caring. But don’t just take our word for it. This all-American city has been recognized as one of the friendliest communities in western North Carolina and one of the most progressive in finding new ways to deliver health care services to its residents.

Yoga Classes – Health and Wellbeing at The Coves

Fitness Classes at The Coves

Body like a mountain.

Heart like an ocean.

Mind like the sky.

Yoga lovers the world over use this verse in meditation. It calms the mind by evoking beautiful images of mountains, water, and sky. If you’re a yoga devotee, your studio probably dims the lights and plays recorded sounds to replicate a natural environment. Your yoga teacher may prompt you to close your eyes and picture soft blue skies as you listen to recorded sounds of birds or breezes, or rain trickling down a mountainside. 

Now imagine taking your yoga outdoors into a blissful setting like the Blue Ridge Mountains where nature is your studio. Where blue skies and calm waters sooth minds and lift spirits. Imagine greeting each morning with sun salutations as dawn breaks over Grandfather Mountain, lighting up sapphire skies, bringing your body, heart, and mind into harmony with nature. Imagine aligning your vinyasa flow with the natural flow of the Johns River cascading down the mountain toward Wilson Creek, while a family of Carolina chickadees sing softly from a nearby beech tree.

Caldwell Heritage Museum – Priceless Lenoir Legacy

Lenoir NC events and historyCaldwell County has a rich history that dates all the way back to pre-colonial days.  Since 1991, its documents and artifacts have been carefully preserved for study and appreciation by generations to come at the fascinating Caldwell Heritage Museum in Lenoir, one of the best mountain towns in the foothills.

And there’s quite a story to be told there – one that begins with Native American arrowheads and spears, continues with an extensive collection of early land grants, deeds and maps and takes the visitor along as Lenoir is established as the county seat and develops over the years into a railroad terminus and a center of furniture manufacturing.

Nearly two dozen permanent displays focus upon the following areas of interest:

  • Native Americans (pre-1763)
  • Pioneer/Revolutionary (1763-1841)
  • Formation of the County (1841-1861)
  • Civil War (1861-1865)
  • County Progresses (1865-1900)
  • The Fire Department (1877)
  • The Railroad (1884)
  • Furniture Industry (1889)
  • The 20th Century (1900-1950)

Many of the exhibits are set aside in special areas, such as Caldwell County Music, Early American Room, Military Room, Tools Room, Caldwell County Schools, Medical Room, Toys And Games, Clothing, and Reading Room.  Local retirees, hobbyists and collectors especially enjoy the special collections of loaned items that are on display for short periods of time each year.

Like other North Carolina mountain communities, Lenoir drew settlers who were attracted to its remarkable scenery, climate and abundant natural resources – things that make owning Caldwell County real estate such a wonderful family legacy, even today.  One can only imagine the reactions of those who first encountered the breathtaking beauty of the foothills and decided to take up residence.  Many Lenoir NC events are tied to the culture and traditions of this very special area.

Lenoir residents with interest or expertise in certain subjects find the Caldwell Heritage Museum ready to let them share their knowledge or learn more from others at the varied and very informative “Coffee With The Curator” talks each month.  Anyone can facilitate a program, and ideas are always welcome.  Subjects for discussion in 2016 include:

  • Caldwell County Radio
  • There Must Be Something In The Water
  • Fort Defiance
  • Little Known Evidence About Frankie Silver
  • Tom Dooley – Wilkes County Legend
  • Celebrating The U. S. Constitution
  • Before They Were Heroes At Kings Mountain

The museum is an especially good resource for teachers who want their students to gain an in-depth knowledge of Caldwell County history.  It’s supported by private donations and governed by a Board of Directors elected by the Caldwell County Historical Society.

The beauty of owning Caldwell County real estate is that there are four distinct seasons in the foothills, all of them perfect for beautiful outdoor living.  Sheltered by the Blue Ridge and Brushy Mountains, Lenoir sits in a valley where there’s no major snow, wind or oppressive summer heat.

So many people have already discovered the benefits of living at Lenoir’s most respected mountain community – The Coves Mountain River Club.  Activities on the Johns River and other recreation facilities can be enjoyed year-round.   For snow skiers or summer mountain bikers, Beech Mountain, Sugar Mountains and Blowing Rock are less than an hour away.  The Coves Mountain River Club is not far from the high-quality health care, reliable shopping and festivals that are part of a good life.

With our attractive low prices on homesites, river frontage property for sale and estate land parcels, plus the easy access to great fishing, hiking, swimming, horseback riding and other activities, we know The Coves is truly the best of all possible worlds when it comes to an ideal retirement lifestyle in Western North Carolina.

Lifelong Learning Courses at Catawba Valley College in Hickory

Lifelong Learning Classes NCFor many people who are evaluating the best retirement places in North Carolina, one of the factors affecting their final decision is the availability of adult education classes.  They’re aware that the key to maintaining a sharp mind well into their golden years is regular mental stimulation, much as exercise works to maintain the body’s flexibility, and continuing education after retirement affords them the time and opportunity to pursue existing interests and develop new ones.  When you can study what you want to instead of what’s required, going to school is a lot more fun.  And, it’s a great way to develop friendships with like-minded people.

North Carolina mountain property owners find that Catawba Valley Community College (CVCC) in Hickory offers adults an exciting array of classes, whether they’re seeking specific occupation-related training or just the fun of learning something new.  Options range from basic reading and writing courses to specific vocational and technical training to personal enrichment through cultural studies.  In total, there are more than 100 different programs.  For senior citizens, attending Catawba Valley Community College has the added benefit of providing interaction with young people, which has proven to be another way to stay engaged and mentally active.

Veterans who want to use their education benefits can get assistance at the CVCC Student Services office, where there’s information regarding the application process and which programs of study are approved by the VA.

Residents can be free from the stresses of the big city in their North Carolina mountain homes and still take advantage of all that a quality learning institution has to offer.  The above is just a partial list of the many courses being taught at CVCC.  

It’s easy access to resources such as Catawba Valley Community College that makes the towns in this area the best retirement places in North Carolina.  And there’s no better choice for North Carolina mountain property than The Coves Mountain River Club in Lenoir.  Located only 28 minutes southeast of Hickory and CVCC, Lenoir is also just a short drive from the mountain village of Blowing Rock, Pisgah National Forest and Wilson Creek Gorge, a federally-designated wild and scenic river.

Smokin’ Hot Fun at Hickory Motorcar Speedway and More

Lenoir Cruise Ins

Over the last six decades, Hickory Motor Speedway has become one of the most enviable racing venues in North Carolina. Located in Hickory, the speedway features a short track of about 0.363 miles with 9,600 sitting capacity and 3,600 lawn seats. Since inception, the asphalt shaped track has seen numerous adjustments on its original size to different suite users. The iconic track is considered the incubation of the NASCAR stars, and hence the most popular of its kind.


Other than being one of the most hyped North Carolina Speedway, the track remains one of the oldest. The first speedway was established in 1951 and measured approximately 0.5-miles. The first driver to win the first race was Gwyn Staley, who later became the track’s champion. Other drivers that dominated the first races include Ned Jarret, Ralph Earnhardt, and Junior Johnson among others. Other than hosting NASCAR tracks North Carolina the speedway has hosted other races as well.

The NASCAR Grand National Series visited the venue for the first time in 1953 when Tim Flock won the race making it a regular part of the National series.

Since 1951, the speedway has had three major reconfigurations. The first occurred in 1955 that shortened the North Carolina Speedway from 0.5 miles to 0.4 miles, and to its present length in 1970. After the 1971 grand series, the speedway fell off the hosting schedule as Reynolds started sponsoring the races and eventually dropped all under 250 miles.  

Nonetheless, the venue continued hosting the famous NASCAR Late Model Sportsman Series before it was changed to Budweiser Late Model series in 1982.

While the track played a prominent role in hosting the first seasons, other tracks started hosting the Bush Grand National Series contests, reducing the number of races in Hickory to two every year. By 1998, the Busch Grand series started adding more races to at the Winston tracks and later dropped Hickory Motor Speedway from the series. Nevertheless, the track is still home to the NASCAR club racing, the Cars Tour, and the Whelen all-American Series.


Other than attending races at the NASCAR tracks North Carolina, one cannot miss the fun that comes with Lenoir Cruise Ins. For the fast car enthusiasts, the June 4 and July 2, 2016, events bring more than just a race. Held every first Saturday of the month from April to October, the event offers a myriad of activities for children, parents and the elderly. From drawings for children, drivers of the cruise in cars, music for the old and charity contributions, you cannot miss a suitable activity for your family. And the best of all, all the funds through the sale of T-shirts and 50/50 Tickets goes towards the charity initiatives. Participants need to bring their most valued classic cars, motorcycles, and hot rods to join the monthly Lenoir Cruise Ins NC.


With numerous events going down in the summer of 2016, you may be spoilt for choice on the ones you need to attend. For this reason, one needs to check the calendar and check the ones that best suits your schedule before planning. If you are looking forward to a summer full of fun, you may consider participating in the following events:

  • The Knights of Destruction – July 23, 2016
  • Sam’s Club Night at the Races  – July 30, 2016
  • August 6, 2016 Lenoir Cruise In
  • September 3, 2016 Lenoir Cruise In
  • October 2, 2016 Lenoir Cruise In
