Are you planning a trip to North Carolina? Year-round North Carolina is home to some incredible sites and events. Before you go, check the calendar to help you get the most out of your time in this beautiful state.
Spring Among the Flowers
As the snow melts across the region, Spring starts to bloom. In Wilmington, the city celebrates this bloom with the annual NC Azalea Festival, a weeklong celebration of Spring. During the festival, the streets come alive with activities, including a parade and live music. For those looking to elevate their experience, book a VIP package to get the most out of the event. When not enjoying the festivities, head to the river boardwalk for delicious treats and beautiful views.
Summer on the Coast
With the weather heating up, make your way to the shoreline to enjoy one of the many North Carolina coast rentals. You can spend your days basking in the sun as the cool waves of the Atlantic lap at your feet. Be sure to take the time for the sand dunes found along the beach. For history buffs, the shoreline offers historic lighthouses and landmarks to fill your days with stories of the past. Finally, be sure to take advantage of your time to enjoy some of the marine life surrounding the region.
Fall in the Mountains
In the fall, New England becomes a mecca for tourists seeking the bright colors of the season. However, tucked in the Western half of North Carolina lies the Blue Ridge Parkway, home to some of the most beautiful fall foliage in the States. Early in October, the leaves begin to change, making this drive even more incredible at each turn in the road. As you drive down the Parkway, make some stops at the local restaurants for some delicious treats along the way.
Winter in Luxury
For those longing for the romance of Christmas in Europe, look no further than the rolling grounds of the Biltmore Estate. During the Christmas season, this lavish estate comes to life with twinkling Christmas lights and extravagance. You can either visit during the day to enjoy the elegance of the holiday decorations. Alternatively, in the evening, the grounds come to life with the merriment of the season. Don’t forget to make the most of the onsite winery and tours to enjoy all this beautiful estate has to offer.
No matter the season, there is something for everyone in this incredible state.
