The Official 2022 North Carolina Travel Guide” has expansive maps that give detailed information on nature trails, historical towns and fascinating restaurants.

“The best journeys begin with planning and exploring the possibilities,” said Visit NC Director Wit Tuttell. “The new Travel Guide delivers ideas that make the most of moments on the road as well as the rewards of being in choice destinations. We’re excited by the countless ways to forge ‘firsts that last’ with a guide that embraces all 100 counties, which are home hidden gems as well as greatest hits.”

While the travel guide is fantastic for ideas on what to do in North Carolina, it’s also helpful in other ways as well. The guide covers how to get to places by using “Highway Maps” to get to destinations on time, locations to try new wines with the “Winery Guide” and if you are a history buff, the guide also includes a “Civil War Trails” map to see where famous battles were held.

Some of the locations featured are Greenville’s B’s Barbecue, Raleigh’s North Carolina’s Museum of Art and Durham’s Parts and Labor restaurant which specializes in Veggie Samosas and live music.
