5 Incredible North Carolina Day Trips You Can Take By Train

While North Carolina’s history is deeply rooted in the railway industry, including many cities that were once thriving railroad hubs, today we usually navigate our gorgeous state by car.

These five train rides will get you from point A to point B in unforgettable fashion.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.
