North Carolina has several distinct regions from the ocean to the mountains. The easternmost territory includes the Outer Banks, barrier islands that protect the mainland. Travel up and down these narrow strips of peninsulas and islands to enjoy sandy beaches, iconic lighthouses, giant sand dunes and beautiful sunrises. Visit Kitty Hawk, where the Wright Brothers made some of man’s earliest airplane flights.
Just inland, the town of Wilmington on the Cape Fear River centers on Riverwalk, with numerous shops and restaurants. Nearby, tour the Battleship North Carolina, a highly decorated World War II U.S. battleship.

Charlotte, one of the nation’s largest banking cities, has an exciting uptown. Visit the area to enjoy professional football, basketball, baseball and NASCAR racing. See performances of the philharmonic orchestra, opera, touring Broadway shows and numerous other artist groups throughout the year at the seven sites of the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center.

West of Charlotte, visit the Appalachian Mountains for outdoor activities. Hike trails to waterfalls. In spring, the hills light up with pink rhododendrons.

It was my wife's birthday, and I was disappointed we could not find a single opening at the spa, for any service during ...

Stayed only one night. The refrigerator in my room was a refrigerator only, no freezer for refreezing ice packs, if needed for additional travel.
