Magical Places In North Carolina

Where are some magical places to visit in North Carolina?

Here is a list of 10 places in North Carolina you thought only existed in your imagination. Below are a few remarkable choices.

  • Biltmore Estate (1 Lodge St., Asheville, NC): The iconic Biltmore is North Carolina's castle of which we are so proud. Any time of year is the best time to visit the largest privately owned home in the U.S. Its historic presence is palpable creating a sense of truly going through a time machine and landing in 1895 when construction on the lavish estate was completed. Do yourself a favor and explore this 178,926-square-foot mansion and its 8,000 acres of unbelievable beauty in North Carolina. From the one-of-a-kind fireplace mantels to the indoor swimming pool, it's worth every penny to tour.
  • Shackleford Banks (131 Charles St. Harkers Island, NC): Your access to a pristine beach with wild horses is only a 15-minute ferry ride. This enchanted space is part of the 56-mile-long Cape Lookout National Seashore, the Southeasternmost region of the National Park. Imagine combing the beach for seashells and suddenly seeing some of the more than 100 spirited, wild horses roaming the shores. Descendants of Spanish Mustangs, these magnificent animals survived the harsh landscape for centuries. And while they've been there for a while, the sight of them catches our breath every time.
  • Whiteside Mountain (91-170 Deville Drive, Highlands, NC): Access to this amazing mountain is by the Whiteside Mountain Trail, a moderately challenging 1.9-mile loop. You'll hike to the top of Whiteside Mountain and witness its sheer 700-foot-high cliff walls for the payoff of unforgettable views. Getting there is also picturesque, passing through some rich woods and flowered pastures.
