What's of note in North Carolina?
Take a look at the Tar Heel State
North Carolina is a land of broad appeal. Blessed with an Atlantic coastline flanked by some of the best beaches on the eastern seaboard, the state is also celebrated for its wild and verdant interior, home to wonderful mountains, forests, and parks. Known as the Tar Heel State, a name that derives from North Carolina's long history as a producer of naval stores (tar, pitch, rosin, and turpentine), this is a destination proud of its maritime heritage as much as its reputation as one of America's most exciting outdoor adventure hot spots.
