    They gave us Andy Griffith. Something tells me about 55% of those who read that are googling "who is Andy Griffith" as we speak....

    My incredible mom & dad were both born and raised in North Carolina, miss them terribly. Spent many a summers at my grandmothers farm growing up. For a week or two we would take the ferry to Ocracoke and surf fish all day. Great times!

    Really enjoy spending time in Highlands/ Cashiers now, beautiful area and nice weather.

    NC offers beautiful sand beaches, amazing white water rafting, lonely stretches of back roads with farms and plenty of rugged mountains. Love the state.

    No, even they admit that their BBQ is just ok.

    Edit: disagree all you want, they said it, not me.
