I've lived in Lenoir for about two years now. There isn't a whole lot to do in the small town, but I enjoy the atmosphere and the people. If you're looking for a town to move to with a lot of jobs, then this isn't where you want to live. There are one or two factories and a few small businesses with Subway and Walmart being at the top of the list. However, I enjoy walking on the sidewalks in town and speaking to the people who sit on their porches or who sit on the benches, observing what other people are doing during the day.
Lenoir isn't a town that offers a lot in the way of nightlife. The town has quite a few parks that I enjoy visiting, especially the Lenoir Greenway and Wilson Creek. These are quiet areas with trails that I can take my dogs walking on while enjoying the sights and sounds of nature. More historical buildings and attractions are in Lenoir than anything else.
