From vast stretches of wooded mountains to the west and long sandy shores to the east, North Carolina is about as diverse as its people, who are an eclectic mix of Old South and the new breed of progressive tech junkies.
Activity in North Carolina has got to begin with some of its spectacular nature. Comprising some of North Carolina’s western border with Tennessee is the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The Smoky Mountains have consistently ranked as the most visited National Park in the nation; more than the Grand Canyon, Yosemite, and Yellowstone. The endless ridges of forest make for spectacular hiking and camping. Meanwhile, on the east coast, the Outer Banks are known for their pristine beaches and historic sites like Kitty Hawk, location of the Wright Brothers’ first flight.
North Carolinian cities are also making a name for themselves as fun, trendy places for young people to begin their careers. Charlotte is the largest and most established city but other spots like Raleigh and Ashville are quickly gaining in popularity. Raleigh, the capital, is home to a recent tech boom which has revitalized the city’s downtown, now a happening place for nightlife and foodies. Asheville has been relishing its new reputation for being one of the coolest small cities in the US, a liberal mountain escape the area is well known for its microbreweries.
The best time to visit depends on where in the state visitors are hoping to visit. However, the fall colors in The Great Smoky Mountains are a must-see.
