I've lived in several areas of North Carolina during my life so we're going to take a brief look at what you could do if you lived in these areas of North Carolina.
First - Wilmington -
The "Riverwalk" along the banks of the Cape Fear abbuts to historic buildings that now hold wonderful restaurants, shops, and things of a unique nature. Truly a wonderful place to stroll.
|USS North Carolina|
Then we travel inland to the middle of the state to the Triangle area - includes: Chapel Hill (where I lived), Raleigh, and DurhamThere are 3 major universities in these three cities: The University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, North Carolina State University-Raleigh, and Duke University-Durham. These are beautiful campuses with much to visit and see. There are museums and historic homes to visit. And if you live in the area, there are parks, swimming pools, and events that you can "staycation" at.
So you see, you can stay at home in the comfort of your own home. Pack a picnic. Go swimming. Go for stroll through the park. And do all sorts of things. You see, "I like calling North Carolina home!"
