You can also visit the Harper House, Hickory Aviation Museum and the Hickory Museum of Art. I covered these three places in a separate article, so let's look at what else the city of Hickory NC has to offer. First of all, you might want to visit the Downtown Hickory Farmers Market. It is located at Union Square, and you know it would be a fun place to visit while you are in the area. You may not want to buy vegetables to cook anything if you are on vacation, but guess what, there are baked goods there. The Downtown Hickory Farmers Market would make for a nice stop.
