I've lived in North Carolina since I was in kindergarten and now I'm 21..we've lived everywhere in North Carolina but mainly Hickory and Charlotte. I moved to Charlotte when I was 19 and have LOVED it. As one of the other users said Carowinds is a good place. They used to be pretty big and a lot nicer..I think its gone down a little bit(just a little though) and its still a good time! If you belong to a credit union, they usually post discounts to things like that OR Tweetsie Railroad..Tweetsie isn't that expensive if you plan on going to do the rides and not buy a lot of stuff while your there. Check out both as there are discounts available to both! Hope this helps!

I also live in North Carolina. I live in the western part; in the Smokey Mountains. I love it here. There are so many beautiful things to see that are free. Just drive around. Go to Sylva,N.C. and just follow Hwy 107 and the sites will astound you (my avitar is of Dry Falls which is just off of Hwy 107). Of course there is (as someone else said) the Biltmore Estates. That's a must see. There is also Cherokee which is amazing with history and they also have Santa Land which is an amusement park,zoo etc.

I live in Western Carolina too and the beauty here makes it enough to just drive and look at the scenery like throught the Nantahala Gorge and the Cherohala and up through Cherokee and the Blue Ridge Parkway, I could go on and on. There is more outdoor things to do here like hiking, camping , water rafting and sight seeing but I enjoy it nonetheless

I was raised there and lived for 30 years, Depends on what you are looking to find where you end up there is history in Edenton ( old houses and tours in April ), nags head beach and a play on the lost colony, this the east part, western NC you have mountains and sking. VA you have beach on the east coast theme parks north, williamsburg is full oh history that is about all I know where to tell you to go.

you do realize that if you just make very short comments like that you don't really get credit for them. Your comments need to be a little longer to actually get credit for them. They need to have alittle content.

Sorry if you've received this answer already but there were so many answers that I didn't have time to search them all to see but a great place to go if you're anywhere near the beach is fort macon. It's free to walk around and very interesting. They have a beach and we go there every time because you don't pay for parking or to use the beach and they have bathrooms, a snack bar, even showers and stuff. Check it out if you're near the beach. =)

There is a lot of beautiful places in North Carolina that you can visit that isn't that expensive. I saw someone mention the Biltmore house, the zoo, Panthers Football but their are many other. Old Salem is an excellent place for Moravian history, as is historic Behtabra. These are located around the Winston-Salem area. Also the beaches of North Carolina are packed with great places to visit, Kitty Hawk where the Wright Brothers flew, the lighthouses, the North Carolina Battleship, Historic Wilmington is beautiful. Most of these places you can visit without even having to pay anything and on the things that you do have pay for its really not that expensive. I hope this has been helpful.

Tyron's Palace down in New Bern is a lot of fun and not too much money. Emerald Aisle is another favorite for this family, especially the miniature golf course...I just hate the very long overpass (over water). There is a ton of fun things to do in Wilmington, downtown wilmington has a horse carriage you can ride in, there are also a lot of museums. Train museum and the battleship were other places we've visited. Hope this helps a bit, normally we hang out at the beaches.

The beautiful state of North Carolina offers visitors three distinct areas to choose from, such as the coast, the piedmont and the mountains. In the west, we have Cherokee, Chimney Rock, Hickory Nut Falls (one of the highest waterfalls east of the Mississippi River!), the Biltmore Estate (America's Biggest Home), Grandfather Mountain, numerous wineries, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Tweetsie Railroad, Mystery Hill, Flat Rock Playhouse, BLowing Rock, and ski resorts. In the piedmont, or central NC, you can visit Mount Airy (Mayberry!), HAnging Rock State Park, Old Salem, Lowe's Motor Speedway for NASCAR racing, the NC Zoo, Alamance Battleground, Carowinds, many wineries may be found here too, Historic Bethabara Park, National Railroad Museum and Hall of Fame, Wet 'n Wild Emerald Point, Duke University Chapel, and much more as you move eastward. And finally for the coast, hey there are quite a few lighthouses, Kitty Hawk, Historic Hope Plantation, Battleship USS North Carolina, Fort Macon, Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum and the beaches! You could spend a week in each of the three locations and still not see everything, because there is so much more to take in along the way. Hope this helps with any traveling plans you may have for North Carolina. There's plenty to do according to what you prefer.

One of the best places in North Carolina to visit is also one of the cheapest. i'm talking about Carolina Beach. It is not as commercial nor as crowded as the other nearby beaches. If you enjoy the commercial beaches though, i would suggest staying at Carolina and driving the few minutes to Kure or Wrightsville. There is also a war museum and battleground at Carolina Beach that is free. Then there is the aquarium. Have fun.

I lived in south east NC AKA The Cape Fear Region :) Its enjoyable to visit that area..real historical..i cant remember the name of it but their a nice mueseum of the areas history in Wilmington. I also have Lived in VA, but that was a Looooong time ago..but when i was young i used to go to Virgina Beach and Kings Dominion. The only place i've been at in SC is Myrtle beach..3 places i've been that are nice to go to are: alligator adventure, Myrtle Waves and Ripleys Aquarium....If you go to the beaches should be mildly inexpensive...just buy food, drink and so forth..
