About Matt Barrett's Guide to North Carolina

Greek Columns in Chapel Hill, North CarolinaNorth Carolina is one of the largest, most beautiful and diverse states in the USA. Stretching from the Smokey Mountains to the Atlantic Ocean it is one of America's most popular travel destinations, and attracts many retirees or people looking for a better way of life. With a rich history, some of the best restaurants in the USA, great sports teams, music and educational system (college anyway), North Carolina has been (up until recently) the most progressive state in the south. North Carolina is where I spend my time when I am not in Greece and on this website I have tried to tell you everything I know about it. My North Carolina Guide may not be the most informative guide to NC, but if you take the time to read it and look at the photos I think you will find it to be one of the best, and a great way to spend your time reading about North Carolina, even if you never end up actually going there. So if you have enjoyed my Athens Survival Guide, My Greece Guides, My Paris Guide and my Guide to Istanbul you will probably enjoy my Guide to North Carolina.
