This time of year though I would suggest the western part of the state. The colors are coming out in the mountains, the Biltmore will soon been decorated in Christmas elegance, and the mountains overall have something beautiful to visit 24/7.
The outer banks !!!! best reason you have great fishing great food beaches as far as the eye can see and its all with residents that are pleasent and shop owners that treat you like your a local. OBX is beautiful but im bias ive been going since the mid 70s when i was a kid and now that im older i still feel like a kid when im there.Go you wont be disappointed
