North Carolina

North Carolina

A polarised state which reflects the divided nature of modern America, North Carolina is home to old-fashioned conservatives and forward-thinking liberals alike. The state is known for its natural beauty, epitomised by locales such as the Outer Banks and Ocracoke Island. The state is home to a number of national parks such as Fort Macon and the Great Smoky Mountains. Its main city Charlotte is one of the fastest-growing cities in the country and a major financial centre.
