I’ve always loved being from North Carolina. I love that on one end of the state (my end) are the majestic Blue Ridge mountains while the other end of the state boasts historic lighthouses and wild horses that gallop along a gorgeous seashore. Being from the mountains and a frequent visitor of the coast, it would be hard for me to choose which I enjoy the most. I just feel lucky to have one in my backyard and the other within a day’s driving distance. If you’ve never visited, I promise you won’t be disappointed.
