Visit North Carolina

North Carolina sits in the Southeast of America, with South Carolina to the South, Virginia to the North, Tennessee to the West, and the Atlantic Ocean to the East. The state motto, “First in Flight” highlights the state’s aviation history, as the Wright Brothers flew the world’s first successful airplane near Kitty Hawk. The state has a great academic reputation, boasting the oldest university in the States, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. What’s more, if you’re looking for some hearty fare, this is the place for you, with pork barbecue and bacon being a firm favorite here.
