10 Images People From North Carolina Will Instantly Recognize

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. But what about a thousand memories? Images have the power to invoke nostalgia or transport us back to moments in time. Sometimes it’s as if we can smell the saltwater on the Outer Banks, feel the rush of adrenaline on the edge of Hanging Rock, and feel our balance sway left to right on the swinging bridge. Images transport us to all sorts of magical places, and these 10 don’t get more ‘Classic 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!
