8 Reasons Why My Heart Will Always Be In North Carolina

Regardless if  you’ve never stepped foot outside the NC border, or have traveled to the polar side of the world, North Carolina will always have the hearts of those who consider it home. Some of the strongest bonds to NC are intangible connections which can only be experienced individually. Here are 8 reasons that best explain why NC will always have my heart:

  1. The people are like family

    Living in the South or even simply just passing through, you’ll come to understand that southern hospitality is more than just a stranger’s smile and an overly-friendly waitress.

  2. The sea is only a drive away

    It’s difficult to think of a more serene place than by the sea. No matter where you live in North Carolina, the beach is only a drive away.

  3. There is always something to celebrate

    From the Azalea Festival to the BBQ Championship, it seems as though there is something to celebrate in NC every week! Who doesn’t love a reason to rejoice with family and friends.

  4. You can go out to eat and enjoy a “home-cooked” meal

    No, we’re not talking going out to Micky Dee’s for a burger. With so many Ma and Pop restaurants in NC, you can always enjoy a home cooked meal without the hassle of dishes!

  5. Incredible wildlife

    Where else can you sunbathe next to a family of wild ponies?

  6. Breathtaking sunsets

    Wherever you are in the world, the sun will never seem to set quite the same as it does in NC.

    North Carolina’s premium craft beer set the standards pretty high in college.

  8. Endless adventures

    There’s a reason NC is among the three most popular states… there is always something to do!

    The endless adventures NC offers have led locals to explore outside their home state. But no matter where in the world we may venture, our hearts will forever lay in North Carolina.

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.
