“To Be Rather Than to Seem” – North Carolina
It is unclear whether the state’s nickname derives from its earliest exports, tar and turpentine… or from the tenacity of its fighting men in the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. “Tarheels” are universally proud of the role they played in the formation of this country, both economically and militarily, traditions that continue to this day. North Carolina boasts great natural beauty – from its majestic mountains to its nationally renowned beaches. These contribute to its reputation as a sportsman’s paradise that can be enjoyed year-round thanks to a mild climate. Home to The Biltmore Estate, the largest private American residence and Kitty Hawk, site of the first powered air flight, North Carolina’s strong economic history and support of innovation make it a great place for therapists to live and to work!
North Carolina offers both the friendliness of small town living, in towns like Elkin, at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, or more cosmopolitan atmospheres, in towns like Gastonia. You can attend Scottish Highland Games in Laurinburg or celebrate German heritage at The New Year’s Shooters in Cherryville. See the largest sand dune on the East Coast in Nags Head or native Venus Flytraps in Hampstead. You can support our armed services in Havelock, home of Cherry Point, the world’s largest Marine Corps Air Station; in Fayetteville, home of Ft. Bragg, America’s largest Army installation; or in Warsaw, home of the oldest consecutive Veterans Day celebration. Attend “Merlefest”, the world’s largest folk and bluegrass music festival in Wilkesboro or “Mayberry Days” in Andy Griffith’s hometown of Mt. Airy.
