hey I love NC!! how is one of my fav persons in the world tonight?? i saw pics of the mountains of NC and I havent been there since I was a kid fishing in the streams of cherokee and the National park. It is amazing. I am convincing my yankee wife that we can be near the mountains in 5 hrs from Charleston SC and so we can move away from Vermont where we do our recreation now.

I fly fish, mountain bike, kayak, hike and camp and the smokies are sooo lovely

can you tell me of some great places to look up??

my sister just visited and tells me she goes to Maggie Valley, is that great ???

Oh yes they have bluegrass and I love it! If you like to take easy hikes, go on Hwy 441 between Cherokee and Gatlinburg they have what they call quite walks and they are easy and beautiful, and most are by the creek. And I'm sure you've been on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Looking Glass Falls is on Hwy 276 (I think) you can see it from the road, Brevard has lots of waterfalls. Oh Maggie Valley is just too beautiful to describe. It's close to everything we love. If I could be only 5 hours from the mountains I'd be in "hog heaven"

i am about 4 hrs north of the Shenandoah Mtns of Va, now. I love it there but i cant wait to go back home and have the ocean 2 blocks away and the mountains 5 hours and the great lakes--marion and moultrie 1 hour away.

I have a time share in Gatlinburg so i can spend lots of time there

I LOVE bluegrass music too!

I'd also like to be within 5 hours of the southern Appalachians.

Even high up in them because there are very few places that come close to as cold as Toronto. Many places near 5000 ft have January afternoons averaging around 40 F while we our January averages 24 F in the day.

I really like the SC lowcountry places like Georgetown, Edisto Island, Isle of Palm, Mt Pleasant and of course old town Charleston. One of my fav coastal regions in the US, very unique instead of cookie cutter sterile like some other coastal areas (like most of the overdeveloped coastal areas of the south and gulf coasts).

I am a fan of North Carolina. Been quite a while since I've been there but there was no comparison with South Carolina. I enjoyed the people more, the prices much more, the countryside and coast even more.
Even 30 years ago, South Carolina was expensive for no discernible reason.
If I want "The South", I can hit the Georgia coast and head on down into Florida (not a Gulf state fan). North Carolina hints at being in the south, hints at being in the north. Still have Appalachia, still have the Smokeys, still have the Ocean.
Not once during the 70's when the Taylor brothers (James and Livingston) were singing songs about "Carolina" did I even consider that they might be referring to South Caroliner.
BTW, my maternal family landed and lived at Albermarle, SC. until after the Rev. war.
Peace

I love both states. But I chose NC because there's more to do overall, a little more variety geographically, and a little stronger economically. But you really can't go wrong with either!
