North Carolina Holidays offer an all-round experience with excellent golf courses, beautiful beaches, natural beauty in the form of forests and waterfalls, and iconic lighthouses.
Consisting of three regions, Piedmont, the Mountains and the Coast; travel around the state on your fly-drive holiday to get a real taste of North Carolina.
In the middle of the state lies the region of Piedmont, home to the cities of Charlotte, Raleigh and Durham as well as the golf courses of Pinehurst.
Once a small textile town, in recent years Charlotte has emerged as a happening city yet has maintained its character. From exploring the produce sold in the 7th Street Public Market to dining at the trendy EpiCentre in Uptown, shopping in the Concord Mills Outlets, seeing NASCAR events at the Motor Speedway and enjoying a plethora of activities at the US National White Water Center, there is plenty to keep you happy for a couple of days in this great city. Discover post-war life in the Levine Museum of the New South, an interactive history museum, and elsewhere in the region, the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh is a particular highlight.
Holidays to North Carolina are not complete without a visit to the beautiful and much-photographed coast. Wilmington is a charming town with shops, restaurants and a good nightlife. Docked here is the Battleship North Carolina and in April, the Azalea Festival takes place, a true celebration of Southern life. The iconic Outer Banks are home to America’s tallest lighthouse and the acclaimed beach of Cape Hatteras. In the Brunswick Islands, take a swing at one of the 35 golf courses and be sure to visit Calabash, the home of seafood, for a bite to eat.
Get outdoors in North Carolina with a visit the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, shared with Tennessee, and the Blue Ridge Parkway. Travel this beautiful area and along the way pause at the art galleries and craft breweries, or perhaps take the family to the Tweetsie Railroad, the state’s first theme park. Asheville is a haven for golf as well as an outdoor adventure; go hiking in Chimney Rock, zip-lining in Navitat and explore Biltmore, America’s largest home. In Pisgah National Forest, see the Looking Glass Falls, go white water rafting, take a slide down Sliding Rock and explore the beautiful hardwood forest.
