The North Carolina Zoo is the largest natural habitat zoo in the world and one of the largest attractions in the state! The zoo is home to more than 1,800 animals spread out over 500 acres. Though traversing a zoo of this size may sound intimidating, a tram system is available to transport visitors to each stop. From there, visitors can explore five miles of hiking trails to view the animals. Additionally, visitors can enjoy seasonal events, outdoor art exhibits, play areas, and more.
2. Old Salem Museums and Gardens
History buffs must stop at Old Salem Museums & Gardens to enjoy an authentic early-American experience. Old Salem is considered one of America’s most comprehensive history attractions, as it recounts the experiences of those who lived and worked in the early South. Visitors will get a true feel for life in the early South through storytelling, original buildings, hands-on activities, events, and world class artifacts.
Craving simpler times? Head over to Andy Griffith’s hometown of Mount Airy, which served as the inspiration for Mayberry in The Andy Griffith Show.
