Two weeks to "kill" in North Carolina

We will be traveling up the coast on NC from South to North this coming March and April. After we leave the Kitty Hawk area we have two weeks before we need to be in the Raleigh area. We have never been to this area.

Any tips on where to go and what to see. We will be traveling in our 25ft Class C

Thanks
Momdoc

Are you traveling the Outer Banks on the way to Kitty Hawk, or driving on land?. If on land, maybe consider the alternative of doing the Outer Banks route from the southern end Cedar Island ferry location then back on the mainland at Manteo. We did this and really enjoyed the drive, and the ferry rides.

No we are working on going north along the outer banks to Kitty Hawk and are now looking for an interesting route inland for 2-3 weeks ending in Raleigh.

You have Great smoky Mountains National Park and plenty of state parks to keep you occupied. You can wander back to South Carolina also. Lots to do in that area, Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown, Yourktown is just a bit north of the NC border.

Williamsburg would be not too far out of the way - lot to see and explore there but am just guessing you are thinking about heading west to the Mountains.

Asheville work? - Biltmore - then on into Cashiers and Lake Toxaway area - possibly to High Point and any of the interesting towns that are along the way.

As spring will be in full swing it will be a great time to be in the area.

Best of Luck,

I now this is a bit too far north but Assateague Island National Seashore is great. Wild horses wander all over, visit in the campground.

If you have any interest in military history then you need to make a stop at Ft Bragg and see the 82nd Airborne Museum. And then it's a short drive in to Fayetteville for the SOF Museum. The SOF Museum shows the history of special operation forces (Airborne, Ranger, etc.) while the 82ND ABN Museum focuses on the history of the Division.

Being a former member of the 82ND ABN I really enjoyed both museums, but anybody who has an interest in our military will find both museums are very well-done.

Up to the mountains. Asheville, Hickory. Blowing Rock, Boone, all great towns to visit.
Don't forget to see the Biltmore Estate in Asheville.

The Asheville Zoo is very nice and just a few miles south of Greensboro.

I'm assuming in your 2-3 weeks time frame you are not limiting your travels to the area between the coast and Raleigh area. That drive is only just a couple of hours.

You may also want to consider the Charlotte area. I lived there for 30 years before moving to Myrtle Beach and Charlotte is now a metropolitan area with big league sports and art. The downtown is thriving and energetic with lots of night life.

If you are a golfer, you must put Pinehurst on your list. US Open played on Pinehurst #2 twice.

Have a great journey. Don't miss stopping in Myrtle Beach too. Lot's of fun here!
