North Carolina is home to some of the most beautiful small towns in the nation. Trust me, I’ve written multiple articles on the subject.

An easy stroll down Main Street and a few conversations with familiar faces. These 11 small towns will give you just that, plus transport you back to a simpler time.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.
