The 12th state to ratify the constitution. Has some big cities, like Greensboro (the best one), and Charlotte, and lots of smaller towns in the country. College basketball is the main sport, because schools like Duke and UNC are consistently successful. The ONLY state in America where you can visit the mountains, beach, and city in the same day. You can't call us rednecks- I mean cmon we have an NBA team. Also pretty kickass climate-wise because I can wear shorts year-round.
If you went to any of the states that border North Carolina (Virginia, Tennessee, and especially South Carolina), you'd get your ass on the soonest flight back.

A Great state and not a place of just backwoods rednecks. Summers are warm, winters are cool. We can't drive in snow/ice like you northerners, so don't pick on us. Mountains on the west, beaches on the east, and everywhere between is beautiful. Big cities, but filled with nice southern folk who will talk your head off if you let them.

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.
Man we passed through North Carolina; that place was great.

a great state (coming from a marylander's point of view) home of the banks, the heels, open land, and great people

The finest state in the nation.
The great state of North Carolina stretches from the beautiful Smoky Mountains to the rolling sea.

the coolest state in the country. may not be california, but it is definitely my home sweet home. got the mountains on the west, got the beach on the east, and everything in between. what could be better?

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$$ :-)
north carolina rocks my socks!

Hometown of Krispy Kreme doughnuts, among many other things (like ACC basketball!). The majority of the state is pretty diverse, although many of the good ol' boy types still think they're in charge. The state is welcoming to almost everyone, but there is still a lot of intolerance.

Preppy is the general style. Live here and own at least 12 Polo and Lacoste shirts. Or be shunned from society. Your choice.
Yankee: North Carolina is just a bunch of stupid rednecks who live in trailers.
Yankee 2: Really? Then I wonder how they afford that Ferrari convertable parked in front of that mansion over there.
