The Historic Waterfront Trail In North Carolina That Is An Adventurer’s Dream

North Carolina is an ideal place for people who love all four seasons – and for people who just love to get outside and play. Whether it’s downhill skiing, taking a dip in the Atlantic or a waterfall swimming hole, or hiking along the many trails that likely number well into the thousands in the Tar Heel State, outdoor enthusiasts love it here – and for good reason: there is a lot to do!

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/
