North Carolina Travel Information

  • North Carolina, named for King Charles I, is a haven for the history lover. The first English settlement was built on the coast in the 16th century and disappeared, in very mysterious circumstances. Fort Raleigh National Historic Site preserves the site of the settlement and the Elizabethan Gardens, with a statue of Virginia Dare, the first English child born in the New World, is a living memorial to the settlers.
  • The state has three main regions: the coast, the Piedmont region and the Appalachian Mountains in the west. The Great Smoky Mountains, a sub-range of the Appalachians, have 250 miles of Blue Ridge Parkway for hiking and, in the winter, skiing .
  • Off-beat tourist attractions include a shell-shaped gas station in Winston-Salem. The world’s largest Ten Commandments, built by the Church of God of Prophecy at Fields of the Wood in 1945 is said to be visible from space. Each letter is five feet high.
  • High Point, the “The Home Furnishings Capital of the World,” boasts the world’s largest chests of drawers. The original chest of drawers was built in the 1920s by the High Point Chamber of Commerce and was 20 feet high. In 1996, a 38-foot tall chest of drawers was constructed.
  • Biltmore House, near Asheville, is the largest privately owned home in the U.S. Home of the Vanderbilts, built between 1885 and 1895, it is one of the finest examples of Gilded Age architecture.
