North Carolina sits on the east coast of the US, along the Atlantic Ocean. It’s famed for its beaches and the many hiking trails through the Appalachian Mountains. The state capital, Raleigh, is a university town so there’s youthful exuberance and a fun nightlife to enjoy. 

North Carolina’s great outdoors can be enjoyed in every season. Surf along the Cape Fear coast in the summer, ski down Sugar Mountain in the winter and be on the lookout for amazing sporting events.
