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.

To sum up, North Carolina is basically the South's version of California: it has plenty of urbane cities, mountians, and beautiful coastline. There's something there for everyone (This coming from someone outside of the South), including counties and cities full of lefties and some that are crammed full of rednecks. By and large it does seem to get a bad rap, perhaps becuase of its proximity to South Carolina, which is utterly dysfunctional.
I went to Chapel Hill, North Carolina and found it similiar to Berkeley, California and Madison, Wisconsin

Know for its blue skies beautiful mountains and wonderful beaches. Outside of Charlotte and the Triad North Carolina is your everyday peaceful southern state. Cheerwine Pepsi and sundrop all grew up here. Bojangles lives here. Known for its college basketball and football programs. Duke Basketball 4 national championships 15 final fours. UNC Chapel Hill 5 National Championships 18 final fours. NC State 2 National Championships 3 final fours. Wake Forest 1 final four. UNC Charlotte 1 final four. An awesome State!
Billy: How was your trip to the NCAA tournament?

Charlie: Are we out of North Carolina yet?
Billy: We ain't even out of Charlotte!
Charlie: Well in that case lets stop at Bojangles!
