In June 1718 Blackbeard, aka Edward Teach, ran his flagship, the Queen Anne's Revenge, aground at Beaufort Inlet, North Carolina, in present-day Carteret County. The only treasure so far recovered from Teach's exploits is that taken from the wreckage of what is presumed to be the Queen Anne's Revenge, which was found in 1996. As of 2016 more than 250,000 artifacts have been recovered. A selection is on public display at the North Carolina Maritime Museum.

Over thirty years before the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock, a group of 117 weary men, women and children waded ashore and made history on Roanoke Island in July 1587, establishing the first permanent settlement of its kind in the Americas. They disappeared from history. Their collective fate subject to many theories and controversies, and their story reenacted every summer during performances of The Lost Colony, the nations longest symphonic drama. You'll find the Lost Colony, (no pun intended), on the Outer Banks.

North Carolina consists of three main geographic sections. The extreme eastern section of the state contains the Outer Banks, a string of sandy, narrow barrier islands between the Atlantic Ocean and two inland waterways or "sounds": Albemarle Sound in the north and Pamlico Sound in the south. They are the two largest landlocked sounds in the United States. You'll find everything you want to know about the Wright brothers and their airplanes here in the Outer Banks, (OBX).

The western section of the state is part of the Appalachian Mountain range. The Great Smoky Mountains, Blue Ridge Mountains, Great Balsam Mountains, and Black Mountains are here. The Black Mountains are the highest in the eastern United States, and culminate in Mount Mitchell at 6,684 feet, the highest point east of the Mississippi River. Tourism has become a dominant industry in the mountains. Because of the higher altitude, the climate in the mountains often differs markedly from that of the rest of the state. Winter in western North Carolina typically features high snowfall and subfreezing temperatures more akin to those of a midwestern state than of a southern state.
