In the Sandhills, small towns filled with legendary pottery, creative cuisine, and sweet shops are connected by pretty, pine-lined backroads — and the North Carolina Pottery Highway. Ready to take a drive?
In this rural region, whether you’re in a sweet strawberry patch in the rolling countryside, on a grassy lawn in a downtown park, or boating on High Rock Lake, you can celebrate the season — and its bounty — in the great outdoors.
Want to make a dent in your state park bucket list? Visit two in one trip: kayak beneath Spanish moss and pitch your tent at a paddle-in campsite along a blackwater river, then watch sailboats glide across the water from the peaceful, sandy shoreline of a Carolina bay.
