North Carolina

Overview

From mountains to coast, North Carolina is full of natural treasures, wonderful panoramas, historic small towns and Southern charm.

Asheville is a charismatic city surrounded by extraordinary nature including the Blue Ridge Parkway, ‘America’s Favourite Drive’ with mile after mile of panoramic vistas. Asheville is full of arts and crafts, Southern friendliness, restaurants and Art Deco architecture.

The dynamic cities of Charlotte and Raleigh–Durham will surprise you. In Charlotte, step aboard the Historic Charlotte Trolley, ride a roller–coaster at Carowinds Theme Park, explore the newly opened NASCAR Hall of Fame or stroll along the tree–lined streets of Dilworth and experience Southern hospitality. Raleigh–Durham blends the old with the new. Home to many of North Carolina’s nationally famous restaurants, unique shopping in resurrected tobacco warehouses and North Carolina’s state capitol.

The gateway to North Carolina’s coast is the charming small city of Wilmington. Wilmington has many attractions such as the Battleship North Carolina, Airlie Gardens and Screen Gem Studios, where TV shows such as Dawson’s Creek and One Tree Hill were filmed. It has become a popular destination because of its moderate climate, historic preservation district and annual events such as Riverfest and the Azalea.

The Outer Banks is a 130 mile chain of barrier islands that are so different from any other destination on the East Coast. Legendary for its beautiful beaches, the area is home to huge migrating dunes and the perfect location for unique adventures. Hang gliding, kayaking, natural beaches, lighthouses, cultural and historical sites. The Wright Brothers National Memorial located in Kill Devil Hills commemorates the Wright Brothers’ first flight.
