Hickory Ranked as 9th Best N.C. City in Which to Live

A recent study conducted by a company called CreditDonkey, a credit card comparison company, ranks Hickory as North Carolina’s ninth best city in which to live.

The study focused on five key factors:

  • odds of being a victim of a violent crime,
  • commute time,
  • income,
  • residents who attended some college, and
  • restaurants per capita.

Hickory was recognized for its furniture industry, its proximity to the mountains and to the Catawba River; its relatively short commute times; and its abundance of restaurants.

The top ten are:

10.  Reidsville
9.  Hickory
8.  Fayetteville
7.  New Bern
6.  Goldsboro
5.  Kernersville
4.  Asheville
3.  Belmont
2.  Hendersonville
1.  Mooresville
