The Carolinas – Natural States of Mind

The Carolinas evoke a spirit of history, charm, and beauty; they are a place of dreams and relaxed living. Both North and South Carolina share a common background with diversity most destinations envy, thus forming The Carolinas.

Sweeping across the Carolinas, you travel from the World Biosphere Reserve to the Appalachian Mountains rising in the west; gently making your way down to the Central Carolinas region; venturing to historic regions such as the Olde English District with its deep rooted English traditions and revolutionary history; visiting some of the many State Parks alive with flora & fauna in the Upstate, to Winston – Salem the home to Moravian Culture and a National Historic Landmark town still preserved as it was in the 1700's. And of course Charlotte, the city built on gold and cotton and known as the birthplace to NASCAR motor racing.

Continue to the coast of the Carolinas and discover wide golden sands lapped by the waters of the Atlantic Ocean and experience the wonders of nature. The spectacular Outer Banks are a true natural wonder where sand barrier islands rise from the ocean along the North Carolina coast giving holidaymakers the chance to relax in clear, balmy waters. Further South travel to The resort of Myrtle Beach in South Carolina which adds a little fun to beach life with attractions, nightlife and shops all on mile after mile of sublime sands. And the breathtaking coastline doesn't stop there, Hilton Head and Kiawah Island are charming islands of the South Carolina coast with beach front properties and a relaxed tropical feel. While nearby Charleston, a nation's gem, is a beautiful colonial town full of history and fabulous stories, from the English blockade to Blackbeard who plundered down the coast and lived on the Carolina coastline.

And all just 8 hours away on one of 2 daily direct flights from London Heathrow to Raleigh/Durham and Charlotte - visiting the Carolinas is so easy. And if you are flying from elsewhere in the UK all the major US carriers have a wide selection of connections through the two states.

Once in the Carolinas it's so easy to explore, just hire a car and discover a land of history, beauty and big blue skies! As a taster here are just some of the places to visit and experience while you are in the Carolina's

1nt Charlotte, 3nts Asheville & 3nts Charleston from £879

Experience the Tall Peaks & Golden Sands of North and South Carolina with this amazing tour. Spend 1 night in Charlotte, 3 nights in Asheville, and 3 nights in Charleston for a lifetime experience.

CHARLOTTE: DISCOVER A LOT
It's a running joke in Charlotte that visitors only need to visit the Queen City once. Why? Because they end up moving here afterwards. That may not always be the case, but with a community so rich in captivating culture, colourful cityscapes, and cosmopolitan character, the thriving quality of life here is abundantly clear.

Charlotte's a city where Olympic-calibre adventurers rub elbows with culture mavens. A city that captivates both NASCAR heroes and finance leaders. And a city where Northern newcomers exchange smiles on the street with Carolina natives. Visitors are sure to be just as captivated too.

ASHEVILLE : EDGY, ARTSY AND INVITING
Asheville is that type of unique, special place that lingers sweetly in your mind and memories for years to come. The city's rich architectural legacy with its mix of Art Deco, Beaux Arts and Neoclassical styles is the perfect retro-urban backdrop to the edgy energy that emanates from the locally owned-shops and art galleries, distinctive restaurants and exciting entertainment venues. Known as an art colony, a healing resort and a home to notable luminaries, statesmen and bohemians, Asheville is one of the most welcoming, vibrant cities in America.

A bastion of cutting-edge art and technology in the Blue Ridge, the city also prides itself on its fascinating Appalachian past and celebrates this culture with annual events such as Shindig on the Green. While many cities underwent major overhauls in past decades, Asheville's historic and architecturally diverse downtown remains beautifully preserved. There's something special about Asheville, and the world is just beginning to discover it. This thriving mountain city features a funky and eclectic downtown, 30-plus art galleries downtown alone, a burgeoning culinary scene, a thriving live music scene and, of course, the awe-inspiring scenery of the Appalachian Mountains. Asheville is the ultimate playground, with a wide diversity of outdoor adventures and the ideal destination for an active and healthy getaway.

CHARLESTON: GOLDEN SANDS
Charleston, South Carolina is a priceless relic of the Old South, brimming with history, culture and elegance. You could spend your whole life exploring the enchanting Charleston beaches and remarkable award-winning restaurants – and many people do! Tranquil shoreline resorts such as Kiawah Island, Seabrook Island, Wild Dunes and Edisto Island are your gateway to sparkling beaches, lavish accommodations, unequalled recreation facilities and mouth-watering Southern and coastal cuisine. Walk the English gardens of perfectly preserved colonial plantation homes, Charleston is a contemporary city with old-world charm, carriage rides and cobblestone streets – It is no wonder that Charleston has won the Best City in the US award in 2012. A Charleston beach holiday is your opportunity to experience and embrace the extraordinary charm of South Carolina while enjoying some of the best beaches the US has to offer. Bull Island provides a chance to marvel at the area's natural beauty, and Folly Beach, a popular destination on Charleston beach holidays, is just minutes away.
