North Carolina’s Niagara Falls Is Too Beautiful For Words

When you think of the most epic waterfall on the east coast, of course you think of Niagara Falls. It’s one of the most impressive and beautiful not just on the east coast, but in the nation. But what if I told you North Carolina was home to an even more breathtaking fall that’s higher than Niagara?

You really can’t beat a 411-foot waterfall right in your (statewide) backyard, and there’s no excuse not to visit now! Make a whole weekend out of it and explore the amazing North Carolina rainforest of Gorges State Park not too far away. Have you visited this waterfall for yourself?

If you LOVE waterfalls, you’re already living in the right state – and these 10 waterfalls are literally RIGHT off the road! Road trip, anyone?
