Saltwater Pool

Nothing reminds us of summer more than grabbing a bathing suit and going for a swim. Fortunately, you don’t have to go far to enjoy the cool, refreshing feeling of our saltwater pool. Whether you prefer to relax in the sun on one of the lounge chairs or you like to float your cares away on the water, having a pool just a few steps away from your home is a luxury that most people wish they had!  

Grilling Area

There’s nothing better than the smell of food on the grill. It’s easy to prepare, even easier to clean up and it always tastes delicious! At our Hickory, NC apartments, you’ll have access to a convenient grilling area where you can prepare your meal, invite your friends, and enjoy the tastes and smells of summer. 

Theater Room

Although we like to spend as much time as possible outside in the summer, sometimes you just can’t avoid those rainy days. When the weather interrupts your outdoor plans, make the most of it and plan a movie night instead! Everyone has surely spent their fair share of time at home over the past year, so instead of planting yourself on your couch once again, why not schedule a movie night at the Estates at Legends theater room? 

Some theaters allow you to rent out a room for a private showing — but it will cost you dearly. When you live at The Elements, we’ll have access to your very own theater room whenever you want! Several posh, reclining theater chairs and a big screen await you and your friends to enjoy the movie of your choice.  

Ideal Location

There are plenty of activities and community amenities to enjoy at the Estates at Legends, but sometimes you just want to get away and explore someplace new. Fortunately, we’re ideally located near beautiful outdoor spaces such as Bakers Mountain Park. There, you can explore miles of hiking trails, pack a picnic, and keep an eye out for the abundant wildlife that resides in the park. 

Looking for a place to engage in some watersports? Lake Hickory is just a few miles away and it has 105 miles of shoreline. Visitors can enjoy any number of activities including boating, swimming, fishing, and water skiing, among other things.  

If you want to venture out a bit farther, keep in mind that Hickory is only about an hour away from two of the biggest cities in the state. Asheville and Charlotte are two popular destinations where you can go to explore museums, historical landmarks, art galleries, and more. Stroll the streets, find a unique restaurant or pub, and just revel in the abundance of places to enjoy.
