Everything You Need to Know About the State of North Carolina (NC)

During the Continental Congress, North Carolina was the first state to instruct its delegates to vote for independence from the British crown. Following the Revolutionary War, North Carolina developed an extensive slave plantation system and became a major exporter of cotton and tobacco, although the slave population remained relatively small compared to that of other southern states. Despite no major battles being fought in the state, North Carolina sent more recruits to fight for the Confederacy than any other rebel state. In 1903, the state became the site of the first manned self-propelled airplane flight when the Wright brothers took off from a cliff near Kitty Hawk. The statehood was given to North Carolina on November 21, 1789. The state motto is Esse Quam Videri (“To Be Rather Than to Seem”).

It is bordered by Virginia to the north, the Atlantic Ocean to the east, Georgia and South Carolina to the south, and Tennessee to the west. Raleigh is the state’s capital and Charlotte is its largest city.

In one of the nation’s most intriguing mysteries, a group of around 150 colonists from Plymouth, England, who had landed on Roanoke Island off the coast of North Carolina in July 1587 vanished without a trace. Although there have been several hypotheses as to what occurred, historians and archaeologists have been unable to find evidence to support any of them.
Orville and Wilbur Wright’s first powered airplane flight on December 17, 1903, covered only 120 feet and lasted only 12 seconds.
During World War II, approximately 10,000 enemy soldiers were contained within 18 prisoner of war camps throughout the state of North Carolina.
North Carolina is the largest producer of sweet potatoes in the nation. In 2011, farmers within the state harvested 64,000 acres—yielding 1.28 billion pounds of the vitamin A-rich tubers.

    North Carolina now includes more than 78,000 miles of paved highways, one of the largest systems in America.

    The major Interstate roads are: I-26 from Asheville to the NC/SC State Line (40 miles); I-40 from Greensboro to Canton (219 miles); I-77 from Charlotte to the NC/VA State Line (96 miles); I-85 from the NC/VA State Line to the NC/SC State Line (233 miles); and, I-95 from Weldon to Lumberton (182 miles).

    The state is identifiable not only by its long, lopsided shape but also by its tangles of red, black, and blue lines: the arc of Interstate 85 from Charlotte to Durham; the split ends of U.S. highways 64, 264, and 70 reaching coastward; the great stitching together of Triangle and Triad by Interstate 40.

    There are four international airports and several regional airports in the state of North Carolina. Many of the flights to and from the regional airports connect through Charlotte-Douglas International Airport, the busiest airport in the state.

    Charlotte-Douglas International Airport (CLT)–

    Charlotte-Douglas International Airport is American Airlines second largest hub after Dallas-Fort Worth and the busiest airport in North Carolina, handling more than 46 million passengers each year. The airport is a joint civil-military operation, home to the Charlotte Air National Guard Base. Ground transportation includes taxis and public buses.

     

    Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU)–

    Serving nearly 13 million passengers per year, Raleigh-Durham International Airport is a surprisingly large and busy airport for a relatively small metropolitan region. Numerous airlines serve the airport, including American, Delta, Frontier, and Southwest, and they fly to 68 nonstop destinations. That said, many flights do connect in hub cities. International routes include London, Paris, Toronto, Mexico, and several Caribbean destinations. 

    There isn’t great public transportation to the airport—you’ll have to take a connecting bus through the Regional Transit Center—but taxis are relatively reasonable.

    Piedmont Triad International Airport (GSO)–

    This international airport serves the North Carolina cities of Greensboro, Winston-Salem, and High Point with annual passenger traffic reaching nearly two million people. It flies to 16 destinations nonstop, including New York, Miami, Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, and Washington, D.C. While the airport is great because it’s not very crowded, it’s not easy to get to via public transportation—you’ll have to take a bus to a regional transportation center, then take a shuttle from there.

     

    Asheville Regional Airport (AVL)– 

    All three major U.S. airlines fly into Asheville, as do budget airlines Spirit and Allegiant. There are nonstop routes to Atlanta, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, New York (Newark), Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C., with seasonal service to destinations in Florida. While there is a public bus that connects the airport with downtown Asheville, most travelers drive or take taxis.

    Other functional airports are: Coastal Carolina Regional Airport (EWN), Fayetteville Regional Airport (FAY), Pitt-Greenville Airport (PGV), Albert J, and Ellis Airport (OAJ).

    The N.C. Department of Transportation’s Ferry Division runs the second largest state-run ferry system in the United States.

    About 800,000 vehicles and 1.8 million passengers, each year, cross the rivers and sounds of Eastern North Carolina, making the ferry system a vital lifeline for those who live and work in the region and an economic necessity for businesses.

     

    Ferry operations involve more than 20 ferries on seven regular routes across the Currituck and Pamlico sounds as well as the Cape Fear, Neuse and Pamlico rivers. Two routes – Hatteras-Ocracoke and Ocracoke-Cedar Island – are officially part of The Outer Banks National Scenic Byway.

    The ferry system also plays a crucial role during coastal emergencies, moving thousands of people out of harm’s way in advance of hurricanes. An emergency route also runs between Stumpy Point and Rodanthe, when N.C. 12 is damaged due to storms and other issues.

I had a seamless first-time vehicle transport experience with Ship A Car, inc. I know that is largely because of Bob Moran, the coordinator who helped me. Personable, patient, professional, always willing to answer further questions, he gave me excellent customer service and I greatly appreciate it! I was so nervous and dreading getting started but Bob put me at ease and I quickly gained great confidence in the company because of his easy and knowledgeable communication. In addition, the driver dispatched to move my car from Los Angeles To St Petersburg, Florida was punctual, called when he was supposed to, prior to pickup/delivery, and made great time completing the transport. He picked up Monday around 2 pm and delivered at 9 am on that Friday. I have nothing but praise for Ship A Car, Inc. and enthusiastically recommend them!
