North Carolina

State & National Parks
There is beauty to behold in the state’s many
scenic parks and recreation areas – from the
Mountains to the Coast.

A.

100 th Anniversary of North Carolina State Parks

Mount Mitchell was the site of the Southeast’s first state park back in 1916.
This year, we are celebrating the centennial of North Carolina’s State Parks and
State Recreation Areas. In those 100 years, the park system has grown to
include more than 40 state parks and recreation areas. They dot the coastline,
are sprinkled throughout the Piedmont, and line the hollows and hills of the
mountainous west and, last year, they drew more than 15.6 million visitors.
Throughout the year, centennial celebrations at the state parks will provide
visitors with even more reasons to appreciate the beauty, history and culture
of North Carolina’s scenic outdoors.

Hanging Rock State Park

North Carolina

State & National
Parks
Lake Norman
State Park

D. Kerr Lake State
Recreation Area

Lake Norman is known as the
Inland Sea for a reason: With
more than 32,000 acres of
surface area and 520 miles of
shoreline, this lake, just north
of Charlotte, is a playground for
boaters and anglers. The state
park also has another lake – and
at 33 acres, it’s plenty big for
great fishing. A 30.5-mile
mountain biking and hiking trail
meanders through the hardwood
forest and along the shoreline,
and 6 miles of hiking-only trails
make it great for those who
want to get moving on land.

Freshwater boaters take note:
Kerr Lake’s 50,000 acres are
perfect for fishing, skiing and
water sports. With more than
800 miles of wooded shoreline,
there are plenty of opportunities
for hiking, camping and
exploring for those who’d rather
stay dry. With this much shore,
there’s a good deal of sand to
go around, and during the
Centennial, you can celebrate by
dancing to some beach music
during various festivities.

Mount Mitchell
State Park

E.
C. Carolina Beach
State Park
We’ve all seen the beautiful,
carnivorous Venus flytrap, but
did you know this protected plant
only grows naturally within a
70-mile radius of Carolina Beach
State Park? Come see for yourself
and, while you’re in the park, hike
to Sugarloaf Dune, a large sand
dune on the banks of the Cape
Fear River. Six miles of trails
wander through the park, but if
you haven’t had your fill of the
outdoors, visit the beach, Fort
Fisher and the North Carolina
Aquarium, all just a few
minutes away.

The tallest mountain east of the
Mississippi River is our very own
Mount Mitchell. Standing 6,684
feet high, it’s impressive not just
for its size, but for its legacy.
As the first of North Carolina’s
state parks, every inch of its
1,946 acres is hallowed ground
for nature lovers. From the
summit tower – with 100-mile
views on a clear day – to the
tranquility of the surrounding
woods, you’ll be planning your
next trip back before you leave.

The Venus flytrap, which grows
in the subtropical wetlands on
the Coast, dines on insects and
arachnids such as spiders, flies,
caterpillars, crickets and slugs.

F. Grandfather Mountain
State Park
Grandfather Mountain became North Carolina’s
newest state park in 2009 when the state
acquired nearly 2,500 acres of this distinct
ecological area along the Blue Ridge Parkway.
The mountain itself is a North Carolina High
Country icon with its Mile High Swinging Bridge,
nature museum and other interesting outdoor
activities. Between Grandfather Mountain State
Park and the Grandfather Mountain attraction
– with that storied bridge, wildlife habitats and
family-friendly hiking – you’ll experience enough
outdoor adventures to last a lifetime.

G. Alligator River National
Wildlife Refuge
With more than 150,000 acres, this wildlife
refuge gives visitors a look at just how wild
coastal North Carolina can be. Red wolves –
once declared extinct in the wild but
reintroduced to the refuge – live here, as do
bears, deer, alligators and hundreds of nesting
and migratory birds. Explore the refuge via a
wildlife drive, paddling trails and hiking trails
that wind their way through the woods.

H.

Uwharrie National Forest

The Uwharrie National Forest is a seemingly
strange upthrust of volcanic mountains in the
Piedmont region. Most folks come to enjoy a
leisurely ride along the equestrian trails or some
invigorating off-road driving in the highway
vehicle area. Others revel in hiking or mountain
biking along the streams and rocky terrain,
back-country camping or testing their skills
at the shooting range.

I.

Hammocks Beach State Park

Hammocks Beach is only one small part of this
state park, and the only part accessible by car.
To reach Bear Island, the main attraction, you’re
going to need a boat. Fortunately, it’s easily
accessible by passenger ferry, private boat or by
paddling over yourself. Rangers host regularly
scheduled educational and interpretive
programs, and visitors can camp, swim, fish,
picnic and explore this untouched barrier island.

J. Jordan Lake State
Recreation Area
Nine recreation areas and even more boat
launches ensure visitors to Jordan Lake have
the chance to spend their time on the water.
Sailboats are a common sight on the water, and
bald eagles a common sight overhead. The park
is home to great bass and crappie fishing, but
you may just hook a catfish or panfish when you
cast your line. And if you choose to spend the day
on terra firma, lakeside picnic areas, 20 miles of
hiking trails and camping give you plenty to do.

k.

Gorges State Park

This waterfall-filled park in Transylvania County
is truly unique: It’s a temperate rainforest. More
than 80 inches of rain fall here, and that means
these rugged mountains are lined with streams,
falls and views for days. Fishing for trout and
bass on the park’s streams and Lake Jocassee
is only one way to enjoy the park; hiking,
horseback and mountain bike trails are another.
During the Centennial, visitors can enjoy
concerts, falconry and more.

North Carolina

Farm-to-Fork Dining
North Carolina restaurateurs have perfected the
art of creating inspired meals that push
the boundaries of plates and palates.

A.

Chef & the Farmer

Chef Vivian Howard and her husband left New York and returned home to
Kinston in 2006 to open Chef & the Farmer, a restaurant that’s more than
just farm-to-table. The dining spot is an homage to the eastern North
Carolina of her youth, preserving the region’s farming and food culture,
holding to the past while keeping the cuisine relevant to diners today.
Then the accolades – AAA Four Diamond and calls from the James Beard
Foundation – came rolling in. Following that, the chef’s popular
PBS series, A Chef’s Life, thrust the region, the food, the people and the
restaurant onto the national stage. Now, Chef & the Farmer – and Kinston
– are a destination marked on foodie maps.

Knife & Fork

Each dish at Knife & Fork, Chef Nathan Allen’s Spruce Pine
eatery, gets to the heart of North Carolina’s mountain
culture. Mountain trout, rabbit, wild greens, fresh-from-thefield produce – all impeccably prepared and sourced from
growers, ranchers and suppliers who are more than food
purveyors, they’re neighbors. This close association with the
source of his food makes Allen treat every element of each
dish with the reverence it deserves.

C. Lantern and the restaurant
at The Durham
One of the James Beard Award winners in North Carolina,
Chef Andrea Reusing has established her Chapel Hill
restaurant, Lantern, as one of the best in the state. Her
new eatery, the restaurant at The Durham, located in a new
chic hotel in vibrant downtown Durham, carries on those
traditions. With Lantern, her focus is on Asian flavors mixed
with local ingredients, but the restaurant at The Durham is a
combination of American and hotel classics but recast in a
modern context. Part of that redefining is her commitment
to drawing inspiration from local and regional ingredients.

D.

Asheville Independent Restaurants

Asheville is on the world stage as a premier dining
destination. That reputation is well-earned and due in no
small part because of the work of Asheville Independent
Restaurants. AIR is a group of more than 110 restaurateurs,
chefs and brewers committed to keeping the food scene
here “eclectic, authentic, interesting, fresh and flavorful” by
utilizing local ingredients and regional flavors in harmony
with each restaurant, chef or brewer’s unique take on
cuisine. Melding the flavors of Asheville with the culinary
viewpoint of places far flung and right next door is no easy
feat, but you can taste it here.

E.

Lucky 32 Southern Kitchen

Lucky 32 made a splash in 2012 when it introduced its
Locavore’s Delight Tasting Menu, and it’s this intersection
between the restaurant’s commitment to local and regional
food suppliers and excellence on the plate that has kept the
popular eatery at the top of its game. With locations in
Greensboro and Cary, Lucky 32 serves diners in the
Piedmont a seasonal menu that sticks close to beloved
Southern dishes but stretches out beyond North Carolina
to bring in flavors that make its fare noteworthy.

F.

The Colington Cafe

You expect fresh seafood on the Outer Banks, and The
Colington Cafe delivers on that promise. The chef shops for
seafood daily, bringing in what’s fresh – shrimp, scallops and
crab from the sound, flounder from the surf, tuna from the
Gulf Stream – and he does the same for produce, using the
full bounty of local farms to provide diners with the freshest,
most flavorful meal possible. At the Kill Devil Hills restaurant,
French, Caribbean and Italian influences inspire the dishes,
but the flavors of the Coast inspire the meal.

G.

The Honey Pot

The Honey Pot in Winston-Salem serves a Southern-to-thecore menu, but Chef Matt Pleasants isn’t satisfied to stick with
the classics; he’s putting his spin on Southern cuisine by
drawing influences from the New South. He takes flavors,
ingredients and dishes from the cultures and peoples that
make up the South today and integrates them into the region’s
deep-rooted traditions. Dishes like grit puppies and Buffalo
fried oysters give an updated, fanciful take on expected dishes,
while rabbit ramen, goat vindaloo, avocado toast, fried poulet
rouge and kimchee reflect the evolving ethnic landscape.

At Asheville’s Lexington
Avenue Brewery, diners
will find delicious fare
and handcrafted beer.

H. Simplicity at The
Mast Farm Inn
Executive Chef Andrew Long
focuses on homegrown
ingredients and prepares meals
that speak to the heritage of
the Appalachian Mountains at
Simplicity at The Mast Farm Inn
in Valle Crucis. The cuisine is
French-inspired but distinctively
Southern, and Long’s “slow
food” philosophy – that good
food takes time to grow,
prepare and enjoy – combines
the best of the fields and farms
nearby to create delicious
dishes that taste right at home
here in the Mountains.

Heirloom

Chef Clark Barlow is North Carolina through and
through, and at Heirloom, his “dream restaurant” in
Charlotte, he ties together the love he holds for his home
state and the culinary chops he developed while cooking
in El Bulli and The French Laundry, two of the world’s best
restaurants. He serves exclusively North Carolina wine
and beer, and his ingredients are almost entirely from
nearby sources, including what he’s foraged in the forest
and field on his way to work.

J.

J

Oakleaf

Everything about Oakleaf, from the space – a revived mill
in Pittsboro – to the cuisine – upscale but accessible –
speaks to Chef-Owner Brendan Cox’s love for food and
his state. French- and Italian-inspired dishes use the best
ingredients available, many of which come from Cox’s
own garden, from our state’s oldest fishing families, or
from farmers and purveyors across the region. With a
focus on sustainably harvested seafood and exceptional
farming practices among his suppliers, Cox ensures the
high quality of everything on the plate.

K.

Rx Restaurant & Bar

When Executive Chef James Doss opened Rx in
Wilmington, the city responded with wild enthusiasm.
Today, Doss splits his time between Rx and its sister
restaurant, Pembroke’s, while his brother, Chef de Cuisine
Will Doss, mans the helm at Rx. The food here stays true
to its Southern roots but pushes the boundaries of
tradition. It’s Doss’ relationship with the region’s finest
food purveyors and producers that allows Rx to have the
creative depth it exhibits, and the menu changes on a
whim, adding dishes to reflect the best flavors available.

Tail of the Dragon

Calling all motorists: You won’t want
to miss a drive along U.S. Highway 129
at Deals Gap near Robbinsville. Known
as the Dragon, this 11-mile stretch of
roadway has 318 curves, resembling
a dragon’s tail. It’s a favorite drive
among motorists and motorcyclists
alike thanks to its unspoiled location
in the Great Smoky Mountains, lack of
intersections and jaw-dropping views.

Reed Gold Mine

Before the California Gold Rush, the first
documented gold find in the United States was
in North Carolina, and it all started at Reed Gold
Mine near Midland. In 1799, John Reed’s son
found a 17-pound yellow rock in a creek on their
farm, and the family initially used the rock as a
doorstop. Once determined to be valuable gold,
mining operations opened that eventually
produced more than 100 pounds in large
nuggets alone. Today you can take a guided
tour of the site. Try your hand at gold panning
from April through October.

There are lessons to be learned at the
state’s many historic sites, including how
the past still impacts the present.

A.

Museum of the Cherokee Indian

Discover what life in North Carolina was like for the Cherokee Indians
back when mastodons were killed with simple spears. Located in the town
of Cherokee, the Museum of the Cherokee Indian details the story of the
Cherokee from 12,000 years ago through the present using computer
technology, special effects, audio and artifacts. Don’t miss the gift shop
– it’s a treasure trove of pottery, clothing, baskets, dolls, jewelry and
other treasures.

B.

River Lighthouses

Contrary to popular belief, not all lighthouses are on the ocean.
Two lighthouses are located along the Roanoke River, in Plymouth
and Edenton. The current Plymouth lighthouse is a replica of the original
1866 light station. The restored, original 1886 Roanoke River Lighthouse
in Edenton guided ships navigating the waters of the Albemarle Sound
into the Roanoke River. Both of them are open for tours, as are several of
the lighthouses on the Coast.

C.

Halifax

The tiny town of Halifax made a huge impression on our country during
the American Revolution. Known as the Birthplace of Freedom, Halifax
was the meeting place of North Carolina’s Fourth Provincial Congress
in April 1776, and those in attendance adopted the Halifax Resolves, the
first official action by a Colony calling for independence from England.
Embark on a guided walking tour of Halifax to see landmarks including
the 1760 home of a merchant, the 1808 home of a wealthy landowner,
a 1760 tap room, and the clerk’s office and jail from the 1830s.

Historic Halifax offers
tours of 10 historic
structures, history
demonstrations, a
museum and special
events during the year.

Historic Inns

Experience North Carolina from a whole new perspective by
staying in a historic inn. Blowing Rock’s Green Park Inn has
pampered guests, including presidents, actors and authors,
for 125 years. This “Grand Dame of the High Country” offers
spectacular views, fine dining and spa services. In Durham,
Arrowhead Inn is big on charm and romance, a cottage and a
log cabin tucked away on a restored 18th-century plantation
with gardens and private chefs. Historic downtown New Bern

glimpse at early Native American life and culture. Located
in Mount Gilead, Town Creek was once home to the Pee Dee
Indians, who built their main village around 1300 A.D. Visitors
can tour their rebuilt structures and mound today. The
fascinating site has drawn archeologists since 1937, and
became a state historic site in 1955. The visitor center has

Quakers

Discover 19th-century Quaker architecture at Jamestown’s
Mendenhall Plantation, the 1811 home of Richard Mendenhall,
an early Quaker abolitionist, tanner and horticulturalist.
A tour of the homeplace offers a look at an old bank barn,
which contains a false-bottomed wagon used to help runaway
slaves escape to freedom. In High Point, browse a collection
of everyday items used in rural Quaker life at the Museum of
Old Domestic Life. Learn the story of a Colonial Quaker family
at the 1730 Newbold-White House in Hertford. And don’t miss
the outdoor drama American Patriots, chronicling the
struggle of peaceful Quakers in a time of war at the Snow
Camp Theatre in July and August.

Pirates

North Carolina’s coastal history is steeped in pirate lore,
and you can see those pirate stories come to life in Beaufort
and Ocracoke. Check out the home of infamous pirate
Blackbeard in Beaufort and learn about his life on the
interactive Port City Pirates and Ghosts Tour, where
everyone gets a sword-fighting lesson. Artifacts recovered
from Blackbeard’s ship are on display at Beaufort’s North
Carolina Maritime Museum. On Ocracoke Island, visit
Teach’s Hole, the channel where Blackbeard died in 1718.
In late summer, you can see a live pirate encampment
when pirates invade Bald Head Island.

Great Dismal Swamp

The Great Dismal Swamp isn’t really dismal at all. The 22-mile
Dismal Swamp Canal (completed in 1805) runs through the
swamp and is the oldest man-made waterway in continuous use
in North America. Filled with history, mystery and adventure,
the swamp’s dense forests once provided a hiding place for
runaway slaves and is now a part of the Underground Railroad
Network to Freedom. Start at the welcome center in Camden, the
only visitor center in the continental United States that greets
visitors both by a major highway and historic waterway.

motorsports
The country’s premier racing
destination will definitely rev up
the excitement level.

A.

History of Short Track Racing

Motorsports didn’t always involve going in circles. Early
practitioners transported liquor on back roads during
Prohibition, using “stock” cars to blend in and souped-up
engines to outrun authorities. Between runs, drivers
competed for bragging rights in dirt fields. A sport was born.
Professionals still launch careers on dirt or paved short
tracks such as Hickory Motor Speedway, called The Birthplace
of NASCAR Stars, where the mindset remains: Go fast. Turn left.
Try not to crash.

B.

Petty Enterprises Historic Site

To racing fans, Richard Petty is The King. The family compound
in Randleman features the preserved Petty-Toomes Homestead.
Plymouths, Dodges, Pontiacs and Oldsmobiles were prepped
at Petty’s Garage for 10 NASCAR championships, 250 race
wins and countless starts. The Petty Museum, which honors
four generations of the legendary racing family including
Lee, Richard, Maurice, Kyle and Adam Petty, holds cars,
trophies and photos tracing success on dirt tracks and
super speedways.

C.

Kannapolis Area Racing Attractions

Like cars racing in a pack, motorsports attractions crowd the
Kannapolis area: racetracks, museums, tours, collections,
driving schools, art galleries, racers’ home shops and more.
The Dale Trail, named for Kannapolis native and seven-time
NASCAR champion Dale Earnhardt, connects landmarks
including his childhood neighborhood; a statue of The
Intimidator in Dale Earnhardt Plaza; Curb Motorsports Museum,
showcasing cars he drove; and his granite-and-glass “Garage
Majal” complex, home of Dale Earnhardt, Inc. in Mooresville.

D.

Richard Childress Racing Museum

He was an OK driver, but as a team owner, Richard Childress
really excels. His 17-year alliance with Dale Earnhardt driving
the No. 3 car, is one of NASCAR’s best partnerships ever. The
RCR Museum in Lexington, on a campus where engines for
several active teams are fine-tuned for race days, recounts
victories with many drivers at all levels. Not bad for a guy
who began his career selling peanuts at a local short track.

The mix of bluegrass, old-time and mountain
music is celebrated with hundreds of
impromptu sessions and events each year.
Check out MerleFest in North Wilkesboro in

Cycle North Carolina

Cycle North Carolina has spring, summer and fall bicycle
rides, attracting riders from across the United States and
many other countries – but these events aren’t races but
leisurely treks designed to showcase North Carolina’s
scenic beauty and cultural diversity. In the spring, coastal
communities like Edenton host the weekend ride. Bikers ride
in scenic mountain locations like Lake Lure to combine
camaraderie and communing with nature in August. In the
fall, the weeklong event starts in the Mountains and ends at
the Coast, allowing cyclists to stop along the route at historic
sites, wineries and breweries, and other attractions, with
overnight stops and evening entertainment in smaller towns.

Yadkin River corridor and emphasizes 10 historically
significant locations along the waterway. Canoe put-in
locations offer Class I and II rapids and other scenic sites.
Big Rock Shoals makes a good lunch spot, and Boone’s Cave
Park is one of the oldest public parks on the Yadkin River.

Mountains-To-Sea Trail

The Mountains-to-Sea Trail, North Carolina’s work-inprogress statewide hiking trail, will stretch 1,150 miles from
the Mountains to the Coast, connecting the Great Smoky
Mountains to the Outer Banks, when it’s completed. Many
stretches currently are open, offering the chance to hike
for the day, weekend or longer on trails that wind alongside
mountains and streams and through quaint towns. While
there is a trail for every level, some of the most challenging
and beautiful sections of the trail take hikers through some
of the higher mountains along the Pisgah Ridge.
