Since 1933, Our State has shared stories about North Carolina with readers both in state and around the world. We celebrate the people and places that make this state great. From the mountains to the coast, we feature North Carolina travel, history, food, and beautiful scenic photography.
North Carolina’s state parks are packed with opportunities: for adventure and leisure, recreation and education. From our highest peaks to our most pristine shorelines, there’s a park for everyone, right here at home.
Every heart beats true for the red, white, and blue — fruits! Deeply rooted in North Carolina soil, our favorite summer sweets offer an unmistakable taste of place. And lucky for us, they’re ripe and ready for the Fourth of July.
