Charlotte, North Carolina

Charlotte is North Carolina's biggest city, rapidly growing and a centre of finance, business, technology and entertainment for the region. The Uptown district is Charlotte's CBD, full of highrises, Fortune 500 headquarters, nightclubs, eateries, condos, parks and more. The area is safe and easily walked, or you can try the free Gold Rush Trolleys, minibuses which look like historical streetcars. Discovery Place is a great museum for kids, as is ImaginOn, the library/theatre. Families will also enjoy Charlotte's parks. For adults, venture out after dinner to the NC Music Factory, Whiskey River, EpiCentre or any of the great bars and clubs that can be found in Uptown Charlotte.

Like Raleigh, Charlotte is big on sports, and has a NASCAR track- Charlotte Motor Speedway. The Carolina Panthers are the city's NFL franchise,  and they play games at the Bank of America Stadium. The Bobcats play in the NBA, with their games taking place uptown.

Asheville, North Carolina

Close to North Carolina's borders with Tennessee, Georgia and South Carolina is Asheville. This city has a naturally stunning setting, between the Smoky and Blue Ridge mountain ranges. It is liberal, art-loving with many monikers, including the 'Paris of the South' and the 'San Francisco of the East,' which is surely confusing to anyone who has heard both! It defies the traditional southern stereotypes with it's alternative atmosphere and residents, and is popular as a tourist destination, especially with domestic visitors as those outside the States are usually not aware of this interesting city.

The city's abundant Art Deco architecture adds to its uniqueness, and it has art galleries coming out of its ears, so do not miss Asheville if you are a fan of art! These are very varied- from the Appalachian Craft Centre to the Red Square Gallery of Russian Art and Culture to the Bella Vista Gallery of contemporary art. There is also an Art Museum, along with several other museums.

A landmark of Asheville is the Biltmore Estate, a magnificent mansion on sprawling grounds which was built as an escape by George Washington Vanderbilt II. It is still owned by one of his descendants, and is the largest privately owned home in the US at 250 rooms, 175,000 square feet. The amazing building is a monument to the Gilded Age which followed the Civil War, and the heady social heights which the Vanderbilt family reached thanks to the shipping and railroad tycoon Cornelius. We toured the house and gardens of the very impressive residence to get a glimpse of how the other 0.001% live, and it is enviable!

Microbrewery tours, ghost tours, arts and culture festivals and the beautiful mountains and trails surrounding the city kept us very busy and far from bored during a visit to Asheville!

Winston Salem NC Travel

After venturing inland several hours, we came across the smallish city of Winston-Salem, another one with a rich heritage dating back to the first European settlers of North America. The West End historic district is the perfect place to walk around and get in a bit of shopping or eating. We enjoyed walking in the Historic Bethabara Park, where there are two restored period buildings. There are plenty of museums in the city, and also many institutions of learning- including the women-only Salem College, and the University of North Carolina School of the Arts.

New Bern NC Travel

Not too far from Wilmington is New Bern, a city named after 'Old' Bern in Switzerland, and originally inhabited by Swiss settlers. It is a port city located at the confluence of two rivers, the birthplace of Pepsi Cola and the county seat of Craven County. Tryon Palace is a reconstruction of what was once the home of Governor Tryon in the 18th century, and transported us right back to the past- colonial America. Also on the site is the North Carolina History Centre, an amazing interactive museum which really makes the most of technology to get visitors taking part and learning about history.

Another place we enjoyed visiting solely for the novelty factor was the birthplace of Pepsi, that cola eternally in the shadow of its red-labelled foe.  There is also a Firemen's Museum, and tours available which take in the history of this very early settlement. There is a Ghost Tour for anyone who likes that kind of thing- not me!

Here is a video: New Bern Tour in 5 minutes!

Wilmington North Carolina Travel

Wilmington is the biggest of North Carolina's coastal cities, the seat of New Hanover County. This city is home to The University of North Carolina, and I found it had a lot to offer a visitor- it is handy to beaches and other major North Carolina cities (easy driving distance), and is full of history!

The Historic District of Wilmington is pretty big, with lots to see- around 300 blocks! We took a Wilmington trolley Tour, which showcases the best of the district, and you can also take narrated riverboat tours. A stroll around the area will give you an idea of the charms of historic Wilmington. All buildings must comply with the established historical standards, so taking a stroll through the residential area is like taking a step back in time to a neighbourhood of yesteryear! You can tour some of the houses in the district, like the Bellamy mansion, the city's most spectacular example of Antebellum architecture.



Wilmington's other drawcard is the beaches, and by extension, the seafood! There are three main seaside communities, Kure Beach, Carolina Beach and Wrightsville Beach. Wrightsville is the closest, while Kure and Carolina are to the south of the city. Whilst the beaches host a lot of holidaymakers in the summer, they are always pleasant, not too crowded and perfect for walking, swimming and sunbathing. Between Wrightsville and the Southern beaches we found the Masonboro Island Coastal reserve to be a great place to experience an undeveloped part of the coast. It is mostly untouched and accessible only by boat.
