I have to be honest. For me, it would be Carowinds. But that is just me. Travelers Worldwide says that the number one attraction in North Carolina is The Great Smokey Mountains National Park.
The most visited attraction in North Carolina is the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The 12 million annual visitors make it the most visited national park in the United States. Its proximity to larger cities in North Carolina make it easy to access.
Ok, I can agree with that. So where else is cool to visit in North Carolina?
Bald Head Island in North Carolina makes the list. They say it gives off major Mackinac Island vibes as the only way to travel around the island is via foot, bicycle, or golf cart. Visitors can only reach the island by ferry or private boat, making it a unique experience for all involved.
The island offers 14 miles of shoreline, perfect for you and your family to play in the sand or splash in the waves. A laid-back atmosphere makes the island a great place to relax or enjoy a round of golf at the Bald Head Island Golf Course.
Another Carolina gem making the list is Chimney Rock State Park
Established in 2005, Chimney Rock State Park is another natural attraction in North Carolina that boasts stunning views. As you may have guessed, the most popular view of the park comes from atop a 300-foot rock structure known as Chimney Rock.
Take the 26-story elevator to the top, or lace up your tennis shoes and climb the estimated 500-steps to take in the views. In addition to Chimney Rock, the state park offers breathtaking views of the 400-foot Hickory Nut Falls.
There are many more. The city of Charlotte also made the list of places you need to visit! Just in case you haven’t recently. Check out all the places here. Enjoy.
