Even if you live in North Carolina you’ve probably been to several of the state’s top tourist destinations. Places that instantly come to my mind include Biltmore Estate, the Battleship North Carolina, Cape Fear Lighthouse, the North Carolina Zoo, Wright Brothers Memorial, and others. Even locally in Charlotte, I’d say Charlotte Motor Speedway, Bank of America Stadium, Carowinds, or the White Water Center. These are all popular and heavily visited attractions. But what about those spots that are off the beaten path? Well, the experts at Yahoo put together a list of the most underrated attraction in each state including North Carolina.
And that spot, it’s very close by. In fact, a quick google search tells me that the most underrated attraction in North Carolina is a quick 18-minute drive from where I sit writing this article. Yet, I’ve never been there. In fact, I’d never even heard of it until I stumbled across this list the other day. And it’s not somewhere I’d even go out of my way to see. If I was there I’d probably take a look from my car and move on. So needless to say I do not agree with Yahoo on this. I’m not sure how this determination was made, because most of the other attractions for different states are well, more of an “attraction”. This is a piece of art. What did they pick? See the pictures and learn more about it below. You’ll also find underrated attractions in other neighboring states you probably visit often. Want to know about a state not on this list?
