When you’re travelling or have just moved to a new area, it’s difficult to not fall into the overly-touristy scene.

This six part bucket list combines tourist attractions with local hot spots to provide you the full North Carolina experience.

Explore the most honored racers in the Hall of Honor or hop straight over to Glory Road to view 18 historic cars and 40 tracks. The NASCAR Hall of Fame frequently hosts events and tours so make sure to checkout whats going on before you visit!

    While you’re in Charlotte, you may as well cross this thriller off the list. This 325 ft monstrosity coming in at speeds up to 95 mph is the tallest and fastest giga coaster in the world. Charlotte’s amusement park, Carowinds, spent $30 million building this wild ride, but the ride itself is priceless. Those exceptionally daring can visit during parts of September and October to experience the thrills of “SCarowinds”.

  3. Attend a Panthers game

    You saw them in last year’s Super Bowl, now why not see them play live at their home stadium in Charlotte? With their season beginning in just one month, now is the perfect time to start planning your visit to the Bank of America Stadium.

    Beer lovers, get ready to meet your match! With over 360 draft beers, the Raleigh Beer Garden is the largest beer garden in the world. They offer a menu far superior to traditional bar food, so grab a bite and a brewski and relax in either the indoor front porch, outdoor garden, or enjoy a view of the city from the rooftop patio.

  5. Complete the Krispy Kreme Challenge

    Raleigh’s Krispy Kreme Challenge is more than just your daily intake of calories. This annual event is held to raise money for the North Carolina Children’s Hospital. 12 doughnuts, 5 miles, and 1 hour and you can make a difference in a child’s life while fulfilling an unprecedented challenge. Running isn’t so bad when you have a dozen-doughnuts-snack in between!

    6. Climb the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse

    Experience an incredible coastal view and continue working off the donuts from the last challenge by climbing the 257 steps in the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. The lighthouse, currently found on Hatteras Island in the Outer Banks, was relocated in 1999 after erosion to the shore left it only 15 feet from the edge of the ocean. The lighthouse was moved 2,900 feet inland and consequently is the tallest stone structure ever moved.

Growing up in various states along the east coast, I've developed a love of all things local. I currently live in North Carolina and wouldn't move for anything! I love the beach, animals, and creating my own adventures. I encourage everyone to travel and never be afraid to fail.
