Nothing Compares to North Carolina!
The landscape of North Carolina is as dramatic as its history. The attractions are endless. The eastern coastline rises to the Piedmont, then to the foliage-filled mountains in the west. The natural beauty of the Blue Ridge Parkway climaxes into fall’s picturesque mountains with painted autumn leaves beckoning hikers and shutterbugs. Our mountains are so old they’re called Grandfather. The curve of the mountain roads invite motorists to explore, sightsee, tour. Break for Biltmore Estate or stop at one of 400 vineyards throughout the state. Our 300 miles of coastline have withstood all that Mother Nature has dealt. The Outer Banks are perfect for relaxing, or as home to the famous Wild Horses, they are adorned with lighthouses and ferry boat rides to islands. Shoppers flock to the furniture in Hickory and High Point. We take barbecue seriously here. No buffet is like dining Calabash style. This is NASCAR country, with the legendary Charlotte Motor Speedway. Wilmington anchors the Battleship North Carolina and is known as the “Hollywood of the East” with more than 400 film credits. Plan to stay a few extra days and enjoy all that is North Carolina!
