Whether you’re enjoying our portion of the scenic 469-mile Blue Ridge Parkway, taking advantage of our legendary furniture shopping, or enjoying the Southern charm of our festivals, good times are waiting in Caldwell County for residents and tourists alike. Theater, concerts and nightlife add to the variety.

Race fans will be right at home in Western North Carolina. Tri-County Motor Speedway is a 0.4-mile banked asphalt designated NASCAR Home Track facility where many rising NASCAR talents have proven themselves.
