North Carolina, United States


North Carolina attracts visitors to its eastern coast for the beach, the Outer Banks, its western border to hike and hunt in the Appalachian mountains, and to the central piedmont to listen to Bluegrass and eat barbecue. Couch surf in Ashville, visit UNC or Duke, through hike the AT, or visit the city where the Wright Brothers flew their first plane. And eat some barbecue.
