Good question. Why did you move here. If you dont like it, move back up north. Believe me, you wont be missed.

Hey Elisha where are you from? I was born and raised here...and for you to love this town your going to have to get to know local people..yeah it can be boaring at times but we are central located to alot of other places and greater things..You spoke of clubs well the best one closed down and was domolished to now house a complex on 127N (mega tan,salsarita,etc.). The best thing that I can tell you is to get to know the people at your work or school...it will get better if you give it a chance.

If you think Hickory is boring , Come stay in Burke county for a while. You will run back to Catawba County.

I love Hickory...we'll be moving back for a year or so next year. Having grown up in a big city, I think I'd go nutty if I stayed there forever though lol

I think that your just whinning and wanting all of us to feel sorry for you!
Like all the other people on here that have commented to you about the situation if you dont like Hickory move to another county or even out of NC all together...We love it here and I have raised my 2 kids here and I think that they will raise their kids here. Hickory will always be my home and I'm proud to be here.

lol how do you win if you are the unhappy, bored one?:P

Like everyone else has said, if you don't like it, why don't you move?

One thing I have learned though is that even when you are living in a bigger city with more options for things to do, you don't necessarily do anything more exciting than you would in a small town. The grind is the same :P Maybe you just need a holiday.

i don't want you to feel sorry, i want to know what you do when you're bored!
none of you have named ANYTHING, which leads me to believe none of you do anything either. you're all bored too and afraid to admit it.

i came TO the pc to ask a few people what they do. and i like how you tell me to get away from my pc, on your pc. PWN.

- go bowling or to the movies
- go to the gym and get fit - the spa is a great place to spend a couple of hours!
- go for a drive to the mountains and camp after hiking to the top of hawksbill - damn beautiful!
- I'm not too clued up clubbing wise, but Charlotte isn't that far away to get a bit more variety...or go get drunk at hoopies and do some singing! lol

I don't even live in Hickory and can think of plenty of things to keep me entertained - put your thinking cap on!

Just be glad you live in Catawba County and not Alexander County. Living here is like living on the set of "Children of the Corn". There is NOTHING to do here (except drive to other counties to find something to do). I heard the snake handlers shut down the movie theater years ago and they won't allow alcohol sales here. I wish I had known this place was so backwards. Catawba County is a bastion of freedom compared to this place.
