The countdown is on until we start our 2 year USA road trip and we want you to help shape our journey. Today we want you to help us create our things to do in North Carolina bucket list.
In case you don’t know, our big goal is to visit all 50 states. Yep, this family of four from Australia has a deep love of America and a willingness to explore and share that with our global online community that extends into the millions.
We’re calling our journey…America Unplugged!
Our America Unplugged road trip is all about discovering the real America. To unplug the hidden secrets and go beyond the flashing neon lights of Vegas, Hollywood Boulevard and the skyscrapers of NYC.
We still plan on doing all the touristy stuff, but it’s about going deeper and finding out what Americans love about America? What makes America the beautiful?
Here’s a quick video we made about the trip:
We want to know your local favorites and the hidden gems in your backyard?
We previously spent four years living in Raleigh, North Carolina when Caz was in her previous teaching career, and absolutely loved living in NC and can’t wait to return. We are huge North Carolina Tar Heels fans and can’t wait to get back amongst the college sports scene.
We know there are so many places we have yet to see and places we need to explore more of in NC.
So, when we visit again we still want to experience the popular attractions in North Carolina, but can you suggest other places to visit? What are your best tips for a vacation in NC?
