8 North Carolina Cities That Feel Like Traveling Back In Time

As one of the oldest states in the nation and the first to declare independence from the Crown, North Carolina is loaded with history and stories dating back centuries. Many coastal cities and towns paved the way for early settlers while Scotch-Irish settled in the mountains, instilling their own culture. Today, North Carolinians are treated to a wealth of historic cities and towns where the past is still intact.
