A World of Scenic Discovery

In North Carolina, naturally beautiful landscapes stretch from the coast to the Great Smoky Mountains, providing nearly 900 kilometers of scenic bliss. Explore the breathtaking views the range offers while hiking, camping, rafting or zip lining, then nestle into a cozy mountain cottage. Along the coast, dive into water sports such as kiteboarding, surfing, stand-up paddle boarding or kayaking. Climb historic lighthouses, including the nation’s tallest, board a historic battleship, or take in both a sunrise and sunset from the very same beach. And get your camera ready: Wild horses roam the sands of two separate banks here.
