If you’ve visited North Carolina before, it’s certainly time to return. The state has shifted from an agriculture and goods manufacturing based economy to an economy filled with technology, engineering, and finance.
The diversifying economy is finally catching up with the diverse landscape. In North Carolina, you can travel from sea level on the coast of the Atlantic to the highest point in the Easter US, Mount Mitchell. This makes the state a mecca for outdoor activities of all kinds. Including boating, fishing, and hunting. Visitors can even traverse one of North Carolina’s Mountain-to-Sea Trails.
The state is also home to the Great Smoky Mountains. Forrest and mountains line North Carolina’s border with Tennessee creating habitats for diverse plant and animal life. Its beauty and history keep it America’s most visited national park.
Once you’ve had your fill of the outdoors, learn more about the state’s history at one of its many museums. The Mountain Gateway Museum, Museum of the Cherokee Indian, North Carolina Maritime Museum, and the Museum of Natural Sciences are all must-sees in the state.
Once you rediscover the natural and manmade wonders of North Carolina, you’ll be eager to return year after year.
