Home to the world’s largest research park, an idyllic coastline and some of the country’s most picturesque mountains, North Carolina is popular with both business and leisure travelers. Those looking for a dynamic urban scene should not miss revitalized Center City Charlotte.
The state nickname of North Carolina is "Tar Heel." The origin of the moniker is unknown, but most historian's agree it's due to the area's heavy production of tar, pitch, rosin and turpentine from the state's pine forests.
