West-Coasters Trying To Pronounce North Carolina Town Names Is Hilarious

North Carolina has all sorts of vocabulary. We have words that only we know. ‘Yonder,’ ‘mash,’ ‘fixin,’ and the southern international – y’all. But when it comes to town names…those can get tricky. With a deep-rooted and long history, our town names have seen a lot of variation.

They’re easy for us to pronounce…maybe because we’ve heard them before, maybe because we’re used to the slang. But what happens when someone from the complete opposite end of the spectrum, AKA the West Coast, tries to pronounce them? Well, the results are pretty hilarious and you can see for yourself below.

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/

The funniest part is…I was actually born and raised in one of the places they try to pronounce. What about you? Did your town make the list? Were there some you’d never heard of before. Needless to say, North Carolina has a very interesting vocabulary. I like it!
