 Where is Elkin, North Carolina? Minimize

Elkin is located in the rolling foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Elkin, in the southwest corner of Surry County, adjoins both Yadkin and Wilkes Counties.

The people of this region are hard-working, fun-loving, caring people who are proud of their rich ancestral and cultural history. They honor tradition but appreciate the present and strive for a pleasant balance of old and new.

Their dedication to the continual betterment of their communities is obvious upon seeing the hospital, industries, schools, and churches which prosper here.

However, the past is very much in evidence by virtue of the well-maintained farm, dairy, and poultry enterprises still in operation.

Elkin is located off of I-77, which provides access to I-40 and I-85 to the south, and I-81 to the North heading to Virginia. The US-21 bypasses the towns and US-421 is 10 minutes south. NC Highway 268 and NC-67 also pass through the region.

Elkin is approximately 85 miles north of Charlotte and 50 miles west of Winston-Salem. The Greensboro airport is 65 miles away and Charlotte’s Douglas International Airport is a 1-½ hour trip.

The Elkin Municipal Airport has a 4,000-foot runway for private aviation service for local communities

Winston-Salem: 35 miles - Greensboro: 60 miles Charlotte: 70 miles - Boone: 70 miles - Blue Ridge Parkway: 20 miles - Virginia/New River: 30 miles
