California was a bucket list seekers dream. While there, I experienced piloting a helicopter, piloting an airplane, piloting an open-cockpit biplane, Flying a jetpack, piloting a glider, bungee jumping, skydiving, paragliding, watching musicals, dinner theaters, and ballets, swimming with beluga whales, driving through the most beautiful scenery, kayaking, boating with dolphins, meeting exotic animals at the zoo… and the list goes on.
Now that I live in North Carolina, I’m seeking new adventures, locations, and experiences. So far, I’ve come up with 13 things I definitely want to experience in North Carolina:
1. Go to the Dinner Theatre
2. Go on every ride at Carowinds
3. Visit the NC Zoo
4. Attend an event at the North Carolina Blumenthal Performing Arts Center
5. Relax in Freedom Park
6. Experience NASCAR at Charlotte Motor Speedway
7. Go to the U.S. National Whitewater Center
8. Camp on the beach in Nags Head
9. Stay at The Fearrington House Country Inn
10. Stay at Old Edwards Inn and Spa
11. Find a waterfall while hiking
12. Stay at the Omni
13. Visit the Biltmore Estate
Because I’m new to the state, I don’t know a lot of the options that are available so I’m looking for suggestions. If you know me at all, or if you’ve read the California list, it’s obvious that I enjoy extreme adventures, but I also love arts and entertainment, the outdoors, and things that I can do with my daughter and husband.
If I like your suggestion, I’ll include it on my list with a link to your blog. The link will remain until I participate in the experience then I’ll add a link to my blog post. Have you been to North Carolina? Have you participated in something really cool in the area? Did you hear about a great adventure near me? I’d love to read your ideas and share them with others as I cross them off my North Carolina Bucket List!
I’ll finalize the list a day or two before I return to the US so I can start planning my next North Carolina adventure.
