North Carolina has the highest mountain peaks in the eastern U.S. and 482km of shoreline. It is home to hundreds of waterfalls, two national forests in addition to dozens of lakes, rivers and streams. It is a true four-season state. Drive the Blue Ridge parkway, sample the state’s famous barbecue or spend some quality time in an off-the-beaten-path town. Sunbathe on the barrier islands of the Outer Banks or go hang-gliding just a stone’s throw from the Wright Brothers National Memorial.
There, naturally beautiful landscapes stretch from the coast to the Great Smoky Mountains. Explore the breathtaking views the range offers while hiking, camping, rafting or zip lining. Along the coast, make time to relax or find adventure. Dive into water sports, including kiteboarding, surfing, stand-up paddle boarding or kayaking. Climb historic lighthouses or board a historic battleship. Get your camera ready: wild horses roam over the sands of two separate banks there.
With all there is to do on land and by sea, save time for all that’s happening within North Carolina’s vibrant cities and eclectic college towns. Here the dynamic natural landscape gives way to vineyards and valleys, as well as premiere golf and stock car courses, historic sites, plentiful shopping and restaurants that carry on the state’s distinct culinary tradition. Those looking for nightlife will find the cities filled with a booming music scene, bustling breweries and enough entertainment to last for several lifetimes. Whether you are looking for adventure or relaxation, mountains or beaches, the rhythm of city life or the tranquillity of nature, your stay in North Carolina will definitely stay with you.
