North Carolina is the counterpart to South Carolina. Like its southern neighbor, North Carolina is one of the 13 founding states and is nicknamed "The North State". This beautiful southern state has a lot to offer its visitors in terms of landscape, history and culture.

The mild climate makes North Carolina a year-round destination. However, it is particularly beautiful in spring, summer and autumn. North Carolina is an ideal destination for relaxation, for a diverse adventure vacation, for culture and sport. The larger and smaller lively cities offer a diverse cultural and gastronomic offer. Here you can go shopping and enjoy the nightlife with a high-quality scene.

North Carolina: facts

  • Area: 139,289 sq km
  • Population: 10,146,788
  • Abbreviation: NC
  • Capital: Raleigh
  • Local time: UTC -5
  • Nickname: The Keystone State

Geographical location between Atlantic and Blue Ridge Moutains

North Carolina is in the southeastern United States, the neighbors are Tennessee, Georgia, Virginia and of course South Carolina. In the east, the Atlantic forms a natural border. Geographically, this state can be divided into three zones. To the east is the temperate coastal region, while the gently undulating Piedmont Plateau in the interior and the cooler mountain region of the Appalachian Mountains characterize the rest of North Carolina. The diverse flora and fauna range from the flat coastal region to the rough mountain region. While alligators feel comfortable in the flat waters of the coast, the mountains are home to many different wild animals such as black bears and red deer.

The coastal region

Like South Carolina, the northern neighbor also has a beautiful coastal area, but the subtropical climate is less than in the southern counterpart. The climate on the Atlantic is pleasantly temperate. The Atlantic coastal plain takes up most of the country, about two thirds. However, you will not only find beaches here, but also extensive coniferous and deciduous forests and adaptable soil conditions, which are very suitable for growing cotton, melons, tobacco and soy. Limestone and the state's important phosphate are used here for fertilizer use.

This part of North Carolina is the most rural region that belongs to the Inner Banks. The Inner Banks are a large area that stretches along the east coast of the United States. However, this part should not be confused with the Outer Banks, also located in North Carolina, a 280 km long chain of islands off the coast.

The inland

The inland Piedmont region is heavily urbanized and densely populated. Nevertheless, visitors will not only find cities here, but also a hilly landscape characterized by the foothills of the mountains with extensive river valleys.

The Carolina Slate Belt is also located here, in which the first gold discovery of the USA was documented in 1799. At the beginning of the 19th century, the professional mining of this valuable precious metal began, which attracted numerous immigrants. Today lithium, clay, gneiss, granite and other raw materials important for the construction industry are mined here.

The mountain region

The Blue Ridge Mountains in western North Carolina rise above green valleys and vast forests. This mountain range winds through the western part of the state at different altitudes. The highest point measures 2,037 meters and is also the highest point east of the Rocky Mountains. The Great Smoky Mountains, fondly called Smokies by the locals, form the second highest mountain range in North Carolina. The landscape is embellished by a river system that runs through a large part of the interior and the mountainous west. Rapids and numerous waterfalls do not only fascinate water sports enthusiasts.

The river banks are covered by soft green landscapes and species-rich deciduous forests. Marsh cypresses also feel at home on the lower reaches of the rivers. Small, naturally created lakes are an attraction for hikers, water sports enthusiasts, cyclists and everyone who simply wants to spend a relaxing day in the beautiful nature. Passionate golf fans will find excellent conditions here to indulge in challenging and relaxing golf in numerous exclusive golf courses.

The Indian Summer is particularly impressive in autumn because the extensive deciduous forests are colored in the most beautiful colors of yellow, red, orange and brown. This autumn festival of colors can compete with the Indian Summer of the east coast states.

Blue Ridge Highway

The Blue Ridge Highway is one of the most popular routes in America. This 750 kilometer highway connects Great Smokey Mountains National Park and Shenandoah National Park.

The highway offers many opportunities to take a break on the way and admire the landscape from different viewpoints or to stop in one of the rustic inns. Visitors should plan several days for the trip on the Blue Ridge Highway. In this way, new activities and surprises arise every day. Additionally, vacationers can be sure to get to know much of North Carolina without focusing on a particular point.

A ride along the coast

The counterpart is a drive along the coastal landscape, which is no less attractive. The beaches here are a bit wilder and rougher and more natural than in South Carolina. The seafaring nation and its pirates are still remembered here, because many former pirate nests can still be seen on the coast today. Cape Hatteras Lighthouse is the tallest brick tower in the United States and offers an incomparable panoramic view of the coastal landscape. However, North Carolina does not have an important, natural seaport like South Carolina with Charleston.

The metropolitan areas

North Carolina has three metropolitan areas. When Metrolina the cross-border agglomeration of cities Charlotte, Salisbury and Gastonina is called. The triangle forms the capital Raleigh, Cary and Durham. Greensboro, Salem-High-Point and Winston make up the Piedmont Triad. More than two or more than one million residents live in these metropolitan regions. North Carolina, together with the southern states, forms the major cultural region of the southern states with the same musical and culinary influences and the open-air theater typical of this region.
