My mom was born in North Carolina and her mom's ancestors came from there back to the Revolution.
We've never lived in North Carolina, but we visited frequently when I was a child - either to go see our many great aunts and great uncles or on our way through from one location to another. My younger sister also graduated from Duke. The first of these trips for my husband and myself was on our honeymoon in 1959 when we drove from Baltimore to Pensacola visiting such places as Blowing Rock.
Our most recent journeys have been going back and forth in the Intercoastal Waterway from Coinjock or the Dismal Swamp to Southport. Also our daughter has a mountain cabin near Pumpkin, and we took a trip to visit her at Christmas 2002.
Links to my various North Carolina pages are under General Tips.
The Dismal Swamp Canal Welcome Center in South Mills, NC is the only visitor center in the country where you can arrive... more travel advice
I'm not sure whether this goes under local or ice cream or dessert. But they have frozen custard, hot dogs, hamburgers,... more travel advice
