Finding things to do in North Carolina can be a bit challenging, if you aren't familiar with this great state. However, its lush gardens and beautiful beaches are worth sticking around for. If you are interested in museums, sports events, and historic buildings, North Carolina is just perfect for you as well.
- Biltmore Mansion. This historic mansion was originally built by George Washington Vanderbilt. He asked Frederick Law Olmsted (the man responsible for the design of central park) to help create the beautiful and lush gardens that surrounds the mansion as well as the world's first managed forest. The inside of the home is almost too much to take in because of its opulence and incredible scale. It houses collectable art pieces, even Napoleon's chess set. Those who stay there will be treated to a first class night in one of the mansion's 250 rooms. Taking a visit to the estate's winery is a fantastic thing to do while staying there as well. But for those who would like to get some night life in them, Antler Hill Village is just outside of the mansion and acts as hostess to the mansions many visitors with its excellent restaurants and exciting shopping.
- Beaches, Beaches, Beaches. With so much coast line in North Carolina, it is rather difficult to decide which beach to visit. Nag's Head is one of the most beautiful and serene beaches anyone can visit in North Carolina. It is part of a very small peninsula that juts out of the side of North Carolina. Whichever side you stay on, you are guaranteed a beautiful sunrise of sunset, so why not both?
- Basketball. Whether you enjoy basketball or not, for many North Carolinians basketball is a way of life. Depending on the shade of blue you may like best, you can take a trip to see one of the best basketball teams in the country. Duke University basketball has been elite for years, and in Durham, North Carolina, basketball season is when the Blue Devils come out and play. University of North Carolina also has a basketball team worth seeing as they rival Duke University each year.
