The beauty of mountain waterfalls, the charm of rolling vineyards, the tradition of waterfront villages—these and more are explored in Backroads of North Carolina, a colorful guide to nearly 30 scenic drives through the Tarheel State. Taking you to secluded areas and sites steeped in history, the drives vary from 15 to 180 miles in length, ideal for planning a day trip or weekend getaway.
From the wildflower-lined switchbacks of the Blue Ridge Mountains to the barrier islands of the Outer Banks, North Carolina encompasses stunning natural wonders. This essential guidebook reveals its hidden allures—mineral mines, Cherokee mounds, bird-filled estuaries—all waiting to be explored.
Illustrated with beautiful color photography and intriguing historical images, Backroads of North Carolina leads you deep into the soul of the state, beyond the common tourist attractions.
