No visit to Alexander County is complete without a visit to the Lucas Mansion and Art Gallery. Tour this restored historic treasure – the home of "Diamond Jim”! The second floor holds collectible treasures and the third floor features an ever-changing Art Gallery.

While in Hiddenite, see the Hiddenite Center Art Gallery - host to many traveling exhibits as well as special collections and arts from area craftspeople!

Don’t leave Hiddenite without visiting the Emerald Hollow Mine – the only emerald mine in the world open to public prospecting. One recent find in the area is currently valued at over one million dollars! The latest finds are astounding, breaking the largest emerald crystal record of 1686 carats.

Enjoy riding your ATV, and wish there was a place to enjoy the freedom of the outdoors?  Check out the Brushy Mountain ATV Motor Sports Park. If you like the idea of riding 24 miles of twisting, turning, climbing, descending, challenging trails that seem to go on forever this is the place for you.

Fish on Lake Hickory from two marinas – Rink Dam Boat Dock or Taylorsville Beach Marina. Camp or visit at quaint Linney’s Watermill & Campground. No matter your favorite way to enjoy a relaxing vacation, Alexander County offers satisfaction.
