Visit North Carolina

North Carolina’s evocative landscape and great outdoors attract thousands of visitors annually – and have served as the backdrop to many blockbuster movies, including Dirty Dancing, Last of the Mohicans and The Hunger Games. It’s a state of diverse beauty, offering up a fascinating blend of outdoor adventures and cultural heritage.
The Mountains
Western North Carolina is home to the Blue Ridge Mountains and Great Smoky Mountains, where you can soak up fantastic fall foliage, vibrant spring flowers, charming little towns and rich Appalachian culture. Action and adrenaline activities in the mountains include rock climbing and whitewater rafting, and of course they are also the perfect destination for winter sports.
The Piedmont
Covering nearly one half of North Carolina in the central part of the state, the Piedmont is an area of gently rolling foothills. Here you’ll find great shopping, boutique wineries and over 400 golf courses, including iconic Pinehurst. The state is also home to stock car racing - the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte is well worth a visit. 
The Coast
The area along the coast has a wide range of accommodation from luxurious eco-lodges to charming guesthouses. Here visitors can dive into water sports, go boating, enjoy world-class saltwater fishing and visit historic lighthouses such as America’s tallest, Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. North Carolina’s beaches are consistently rated among the best in the US - more than 300 miles are waiting to be explored.
