""My Hometown"... Bruce Springteen" Top 5 Page for this destination Hickory by NC_Ziggy

Hickory Travel Guide: 42 reviews and 186 photos

Will Be Posted Soon! Words Spoken a Year Ago!

For now, this is a place to post my Rambling Ravings, Thoughts of the Day, and various pictures that I am pleased to share. I have so very very enjoyed my digital camera and perhaps will use it to build a "real" page of my hometown Hickory, North Carolina someday! Bear with me, please until that day arrives! Or, give me grief and make me do it! The choice is yours to make... :-)

Colors on a Downtown Street

Until I get time (or take time) to make a true Hickory page, I will try to share with you some visuals of the town I call home. I will not try to go into great detail here but will save that for a really, really intensive portrayal of my hometown... Don't hold your breath! :-) Hopefully, you will simply enjoy some of the sights and I DO PROMISE to create some meaningful pages somehow, someday... soon!

Ice on a Slippery Slope...

Hickory is a good place for many reasons, but perhaps the best is the distinct change of seasons. We have a warm, sunny Spring... Hot, humid Summers, glowing and colorful Autumns, and spectacular icy Winter days! All combine to provide a landscape of variety and enjoyment for ALL Seasons!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:It's Home, and a Good One at That!
  • Cons:I both welcome & struggle with the growth & changes...
  • In a nutshell:As I was born here, I don't see it but many come to visit & find a place to call home!

    Hi, Steve! Thanks for your kind words. I certainly wouldn't call your pages "meager," though... Take care, Mark

    Sounds like Patty has a devil dog ;-) No furry presents for me, I'm afraid, the current cats and dog took a vote and it was a resounding NO!!!!!
