Overrated? No.

Two front doors? lol Can't say that I've ever seen a house with two front doors. Unless you count those huge, old houses with double doors. Of which I've only seen a few.

If you drive around the triad and look at the ranch homes you will find alot of ranch homes with the front door with double doors.

NC may be a little overhyped (especially when it comes to UNC and Duke basketball; they don't have to be the favorites every single year, now!), but the state actually deserves a lot of its praise. I live right over the border in VA, and once in a while, I'll go to the OBX or Elizabeth City for a day trip. The people there are friendly and easy to get along with (just like native Virginians, lol), and the Barbeque is second to none. If you think that NC is overrated, try visiting the barrier islands on the coast, the mountains close to Asheville, Edenton, New Bern (both quiet towns on the Sounds), and the campus of UNC. Personally, I don't care much for Wilmington, and I haven't been to Charlotte in ages, but NC is my favorite state after Virginia.

No, but I do hear about it a lot on this forum, which is strange because it's hardly ever discussed by anyone I know.

I voted no - I have never heard anyone brag or show off from North Carolina.



Wow edited 3 times for spelling mistakes - see if you can find more!
It already is. This state has grown too much in the past 10 years, would love a slow-down.
