Guides to North Carolina

Home to controversial U.S. Senator Jesse Helms, many of the principal players in America's powerful tobacco industry, and a big chunk of the nation's textile manufacturing, you may think North Carolina is full of fire, smoke, and fiber. Well, that's true, but think of the majestic Blue Ridge and Great Smoky Mountains rising up near the Tennessee border, and the miles of scenic coastline on the state's Atlantic side. And did you know that the Roanoke Island settlement, founded by Sr. Walter Raleigh in 1585, was the first English colony in America?

North Carolina's history is long and rich, from its early colonial days, to the pivotal role it played in the U.S. Civil War, to the traditions of elegance and culture it carries on today in its cities and towns. Raleigh, the state capital, is home to a well-respected symphony and fine art museum (both of which are generously supported by the state-take that, Mr. Helms); the Mint Museum of Art is located in Charlotte; and Chapel Hill's Morehead Planetarium is considered one of the finest institutions of its kind. We visited these and other sites on our virtual voyage.
