The so-called mountains are hours away from all the cities and are have no views as they are not really mountains and covered with trees. More like foothills.
The beaches are hours away from all the cities and hot as hell in the summer. The typical Carolina beach vacation is to rent a house miles from any restaurants and try not to get too burnt. There are no waves to speak of.
The Golf courses are World Class. And very numerous. The only thing that outnumber the golf courses are the churches. About a par-5 between churches.
The state is bordered to the south by South Carolina, a place so shockingly devoid of culture and populated by religious bigots that it makes one wonder what happens at the otherwise invisible state line.
The so-called cities are really overgrown suburbs. All linked together along the Interstate by strip-malls.
The state university system is very good. It is assumed that all residents are interested in college basketball and that you follow one of the local teams. You will be expected to be able to discuss basketball as easily as the weather.
The state-pastime is to go to the local Mall. Mall's in North Carolina fill up like it's Christmas every weekend.
If North Carolina were West of the Rockies it would be even more boring than Oregon.
You: Why ?
Me: Everything here is about half-way. I know what I want now.
Charlotte, NC | One of the faster growing cities in the Southern U.S.A.
Map of NC
A place where ACC basketball is life. Everyone has a team they love UNC or hate Duke.
When passing through Raleigh, stop at Char Grill and grab a Cheerwine.
home to the best basketball teams in the country (UNC baby!) and home to the best barbeque anywhere...eastern nc style...
the women are sexy, the tobacco is plentiful, the countryside is beautiful, the beach is sick, the cities are sweet, and the colleges are even sweeter...
Raleigh and Charlotte!!!!!!!
home to awesome basketball teams. dont hate on the south and east coast, cuz you know we rock. we may be part of the south, but we have diversity everywhere. can't forget the first flight. sure, we have a countryside, but then we have the urban city side! see? north carolina is all-around AWESOME.
if u dont like north carolina and think we're just some rednecks and hicks, get on a plane and fly over to nc and watch me kick your a$$ :-)
Preppy is the general style. Live here and own at least 12 Polo and Lacoste shirts. Or be shunned from society. Your choice.
Yankee 2: Really? Then I wonder how they afford that Ferrari convertable parked in front of that mansion over there.
