Recently, when we stayed in Tennesse, we were just a few hours from North Carolina. So, of course, we had to make a trip! Unfortunately, we didn’t anticipate the time it would take to cross over the mountain to get there. While the drive was lovely, by the time we actually made it over the mountain our kids were d-o-n-e, done. So, we didn’t make it to Asheville, as I had originally planned…but, we did make it in to North Carolina, so it counts!

Even though our visit to North Carolina was cut short and we had to turn back, we will be learning about the state, its history, capitol and more before we return. I have gathered some great resources to help you learn more about the state of North Carolina. Each state has a history, fun facts and wonderful sites to see. Over the next year, I will be sharing resources – printables, travel destinations and food favorites – from each state.
