SOUTHEAST USA TRAVEL GUIDE

Why would an Aussie family chose to live permanently in Raleigh, NC?

We know how weird it sounds, but we fell in love, not only with the vibrant lifestyle of Raleigh, but the stunning landscapes and historical stories and rich culture that surrounds it.

Southeast USA is home to beautiful mountains, small towns, stunning beaches, innovative food, and growing craft beer scene.

We also feel it's where you'll find some of the friendliest people in the USA, particularly in our hometown, Raleigh, NC.

Scroll below to find some of our highlights and favorite experiences in the Southeast USA including festivals, mountains, lakes, beaches and fun road trip ideas.

SOUTHEAST USA BEACHES

Wrightsville Beach NC

We love the beaches in the Southeast - low key beach vibe, white sandy shores, waves, and spectacular sunrises. Plus, in the summer, the water is warm and the outside temps high.

We much prefer the beaches on the Southeast Coast than the West Coast.

Here are a few of our favorites.

The chill atmosphere, the dolphins playing in the surf, and the salty ocean breeze made for the perfect end to our day. Thank you again @ytravelblog for the awesome recommendations you always have!
