This Natural Wonders Road Trip Will Show You North Carolina Like You’ve Never Seen It Before
We’ve written many times about North Carolina’s natural wonders. They’re so amazing that we think that every North Carolinian owes them a visit. With that in mind, we’ve created a road trip that will take you to 10 of our state’s most amazing sites that nature has to offer.
If you drove straight through, this road trip would take over 15 hours. Of course, we don’t recommend that! Take several days (or more) to explore these beautiful places. You’ll travel a total of 728 miles – though you should definitely feel free to make side trips along the way.

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! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
We’re only able to bring you 10 of North Carolina’s natural wonders in this road trip – which ones did we miss?
