I noticed. I considered responding to all three, but, hopefully, the poster's ignorance was evident to the rest of the board. It's good to see other posters defending rural NC. Political preference aside, the statement he/she made was idiotic. I grew up in rural Eastern NC. I have all of my teeth, I had running water, and I also had access to medical facilities. The same applies for all of my family and friends.

Well, to get the thread back on track, I don't think I can pick just one favorite place. I love the beaches and the mountains and live in the Piedmont. I'm trying to make a personal project of exploring all the NC beaches, but haven't nearly gotten to them all yet. The mountains are fabulous. I just got back from a 4 day weekend in Boone basking in the 80s while y'all were having 100+ days here in the Triangle. Wonderful! There are places in the Triangle I love, too. I know a lot of people really love Chapel Hill and you could get that as an answer to the favorite place in NC from many alums. It's a great place to live IMO. And is halfway btwn the mts and the beach so I don't have to pick!

It's hard to say. I love visiting Asheville. The mountains are beautiful and I enjoy Biltmore, white water rafting, etc.

The triangle is wonderful for everyday living.

Not a huge fan of the coastal regions. NC coast is ok for weekends but for a real "beach" vacation I prefer places like Destin.
