Places to visit in North Carolina Mountains Appalachain Mountains Biltmore House Piedmont Bank of America Stadium Carowinds U.S. National Whitewater Center Coastal Outer Banks Cape Hatteras The Appalachian Basin Region is a physiographic province extending from Alabama to Maine and encompasses the eastern seaboard of the United States. Evidence suggests the complex geology of the region was formed by a series of continental plate collisions and deformation resulting in the Appalachian Mountains and large areas of elongated, faulted, and deformed ridges and valleys. Over time erosion has carried sediments seaward to the continental shelf and modified the landscape to the more familiar piedmont terraine.

It is the largest privately-owned home in the United States, at 175,000 square feet and featuring 250 rooms. Still owned by one of Vanderbilt's descendants, it stands today as one of the most prominent remaining examples of the Gilded Age. In 2007, it was ranked eighth on the List of America's Favorite Architecture by the American Institute of Architects

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._National_Whitewater_Center A 200-mile long string of narrow barrier islands off the coast of North Carolina, beginning in southeastern corner of Virginia Beach on the east coast of the United States. They cover approximately half the northern North Carolina coastline, separating the Currituck Sound, Albemarle Sound, and Pamlico Sound from the Atlantic Ocean
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Outer_Banks In 1999, as the receding shoreline had come dangerously close to Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, the 4830-ton lighthouse was lifted and moved inland a distance of 2900 feet. Its distance from the seashore is now 1500 feet, about the same as when it was originally built.
