North Carolina Attractions to Shine During National Park Service Centennial

From the Blue Ridge Parkway to Cape Hatteras National Seashore, North Carolina will shine throughout the U.S. National Park Service’s 100th anniversary celebration in 2016.

The state is home to the oldest national seashore (Cape Hatteras), the most popular national park (Great Smoky Mountains) as well as the Blue Ridge Parkway, known as “America’s Favorite Drive,” and Cape Lookout National Seashore, whose golden anniversary coincides with the National Park Service centennial.

Other properties include the Appalachian Trail, the Wright Brothers National Memorial in Kill Devil Hills, the Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site in Flat Rock and Fort Raleigh National Historic Site on Roanoke Island, where the British made their first attempt at a permanent settlement in the New World.
