9 On Your Side is kicking off a month of living local, starting in at Fort Macon State Park in Carteret County.
For those who love history and nature, it’s a one-stop shop.
Half of the Civil War-era fort has been restored, with each room like a mini-museum, and the other half still maintains elements of the past.
Up the hill as soon as you drive into the park, you’ll see the cannons.
A cannon firing takes place once a week during the summer, with members of the Coast Guard participating in the program.
There is also an education center, hiking, fishing and more.
Make sure to submit your living local photos for a chance to win a $25 Bojangles gift card and a gift bag from Kellem Law Firm! Submit you photos here.
