Go inland and you’ll pass through little towns that provide a unique glimpse into the past. North Carolina’s historical and cultural evolution - Cherokee, Hateras, Tuscarora Native American groups and Sioux tribes occupied the land long before the arrival of European explorers settled in the early 1500s. It is a land of beautiful rolling hills and rich in mineral wealth, yielding an amazing mineral diversity with gold in the hills, rubies, emeralds, sapphires, and even diamonds with the largest collection on show in the national Science Museum in Raleigh. This state produces more emeralds than anywhere else in North America and some emeralds weigh nearly 1,500 carats. America’s first gold rush began when in 1799, a 17-pound rock was found by a 12 year-old boy. It was used as a doorstop for years before his father realized it was solid gold. There’s a recreated gold mine tunnel, giving visitors a peek into the tough conditions under which miners worked. A vast difference today where bed and breakfast North Carolina Heartlands offers hospitality, comfort and style!

In a state where metropolitan regions tend to come in clusters of threes as for instance the Research Triangle region of Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill, the Greensboro/High Point/Winston Salem Triad area, the Goldsboro/Jacksonville/Fayetteville Military Triangle and the Greenville/Rocky Mount/Wilson Down East Triangle, whilst it appears paradoxical it’s nonetheless quite fitting, but completely in character for Charlotte’s North Carolina's largest city to be a single municipal entity. Charlotte has a lot to offer, located in the Northeast corner of Mecklenburg County an urban metropolis city with a passion for sports and a world famous Auto Racing facility. From the exciting nightlife and exquisite dining to the wonderful arts found in the cultural district. The region lies close to a landscape of hills, forests, and lakes offering every opportunity for outdoor escape.
Eno River State Park located northwest of Durham is an urban woodland oasis with a beautiful countryside consisting of pines, hardwood, mountain laurel and Catawba rhododendron all helping to set the scene in this heartland park. There are endless opportunities for adventure and leisure in and around the clear, cool and mercurial waters of the Eno as it flow into Falls Lake. From rushing rapids to serene eddies, it cuts its way through a narrow, steep-walled valley. Some eleven miles of the river runs through the 2,600-acre park, which lies in the heart of this rolling, sculpted landscape. Parts of the rocky shallow waters make the river a challenge for canoeing and kayaking and due to the variety of aquatic life, it is considered to be one of the best fishing streams in the Neuse River Basin. As you hike through the miles of scenic trails you may see wildlife like the beaver at work or a raccoon washing his meal in the waters. In Winston-Salem, a must historical site to see is the Guilford Courthouse and Moores Creek National Military Parks, Carl Sandburg's home near Hendersonville, and the Old Salem Restoration in Winston-Salem. There is a wonderful eclectic selection of quaint shops, a wide choice of superb restaurants not forgetting the endless opportunities for adventure and leisure. A visit to Fayetteville Cool Spring Tavern - built in 1788, is very interesting and the oldest structure in the city, also the Independent Light Infantry Armory & Museum and the Cape Fear Historical Complex is worth a detour. For choice, value and quality choose from a wide selection of bed and breakfast in the beautiful North Carolina Heartlands areas for an exciting memorable vacation!
