21 Ways North Carolina Is America’s Black Sheep… And We Love It That Way

Every family has the ‘black sheep,’ that one family member that seems to stand out and just…not quite fit in so well. While the family may look at the black sheep as different, the black sheep knows in fact they’re actually awesome for being SO different. On a larger scale, states have cities that are the black sheep and of course, America has states that are a bit different than the rest. While North Carolina might stand on its own, we wouldn’t want to have it any other way…here’s why.

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/
