Description



About the Book



With sumptuous photos, maps, and fascinating details, this book charts weekend adventures and day trips to North Carolina's most spectacular sites and secret treasures.



Book Synopsis



North Carolina is a traveler's dream, from the Great Smoky Mountains to the Outer Banks' historic lighthouses, wild horses, and charming fishing villages; from battlegrounds of the Revolutionary and Civil Wars to the "heart of motorsports"; from rolling wine country and golf courses to stately plantations and rustic settlements. Whether you travel North Carolina for its historic treasures or natural beauty, this handy guide will help you find the Old North State's most spectacular sites and secret treasures. The book charts weekend adventures and day trips along back roads and scenic routes, into the state's many mist-shrouded mountains--the Black, the Blue Ridge, and the Great Smokies--and down to its ever-changing shores. Sumptuously illustrated, with maps and all manner of interesting detail, Backroads of North Carolina is a page-by-page pleasure, as well as a passport to the more off-beat delights of the Tar Heel State.



From the Back Cover



The beauty of mountain waterfalls, the charm of rolling vineyards, the tradition of waterfront villages--these and more are explored in "Backroads of North Carolina," a colorful guide to nearly 30 scenic drives through the Tarheel State. Taking you to secluded areas and sites steeped in history, the drives vary from 15 to 180 miles in length, ideal for planning a day trip or weekend getaway. From the wildflower-lined switchbacks of the Blue Ridge Mountains to the barrier islands of the Outer Banks, North Carolina encompasses stunning natural wonders. This essential guidebook reveals its hidden allures--mineral mines, Cherokee mounds, bird-filled estuaries--all waiting to be explored. Illustrated with beautiful color photography and intriguing historical images, "Backroads of North Carolina "leads you deep into the soul of the state, beyond the common tourist attractions. Author and photographer Kevin Adams has published eight travel books, including "Our North Carolina." He lives in High Point, North Carolina.
