You Won’t Be Happy To Hear That North Carolina Is Experiencing A Major Surge Of Ticks This Year

Tick season is upon is in the Tar Heel State – and you may not like the consequences of our milder than normal winter. After much of the state experienced only repeated brief periods of cold weather followed by some unseasonably warm temperatures, the ticks this year will be more prevalent than in most spring and summer seasons in North Carolina.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
