Mitchell and rafting down the French Broad River. I love my country roots, with the long winding ro and horse farms nestled in the distance. High school football rivalries are a big deal, mmkay?
ACC Insider. Luckily everyone loves the Panthers, and the Hurricanes.
Oh, but college basketball…well…. Duke, Carolina, NC State. Whatever your sweetie likes is what you will like and no matter who the opposing team is playing you NEVER root for them, ya hear me?! We also have a war over barbeque BBQ. You will try both, and you will also have to pick a side.

Did I mention North Carolinians are extremely laid back? With so many talented, famous musicians hailing from this great state, it comes naturally to us. We love to share music, find music, listen to music, oh and…. Hello, perfect Summer night. We love catching a concert, drinking a cold craft beer on the lawn, kicking back and jamming out. Did I mention bluegrass?
The new rules for teen dating
Our bluegrass festivals are pretty epic. Our mommas, grandmas and aunts can all make some killer casseroles, biscuits, fried chicken, green beans, grits…ok, is anyone else getting hungry or is it just me? We take our southern hospitality seriously. Or put your groceries in the buggy? From the metropolitan, 27th floor restaurants overlooking the grand city of Charlotte.
Or, fresh caught seafood with a sunset harbor view. Cities like Raleigh, Durham, and Asheville have all made national lists for best food cities. The Buzz.
Craft beer, muscadine wine, moonshine. We love a good time. We love being surrounded by friends, family, food, and drinks.
North Carolinians know how to party. From chill summer concerts to cool autumn bonfires. Even a little cabin party in the winter. Make sure to have a cool sweet tea in hand.
With so many options TO be active, we love to catch a wave, hit the ski slopes, hike a mountaintry out rock climbing, run a 5k, even just do some yoga or take a dance class. North Carolinians love the outdoors! Charlotte is home to some amazing museums. Like I said, southern hospitality. Sure we boast about our state, our friends and our family.
Mainly because North Carolinians are taught to always have pride but never be prideful. Than a girl or guy from Carolina. Try to resist this southern accent, I dare you. But most importantly…. This will never change.
We can move to another country and will still miss, remember, and talk about how great our home is. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.
