North Carolina’s Massive Wildfire Is Spreading And It’s Truly Tragic

It was just one week ago that we spoke of the worst wildfire to take place in North Carolina’s history. As of last week, our state had seen over 40,000 acres of land burned by wildfires since the end of October, with matters only getting worse. We’re heartbroken to report that a new fire broke out Monday night, burning roughly one thousand acres in the past 24 hours since starting. With plenty of wildfires still raging throughout the west in North Carolina, it’s become an increasingly terrifying thought to think about what will happen to our state if these disasters don’t get under control soon enough.

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:
