Welcome to the Carolinas!

North & South Carolina

Two States, One amazing holiday experience.

The Carolinas evoke a spirit of history, charm, and beauty; they are a place of dreams and relaxed living. Both North and South Carolina share a common background with diversity most destinations envy, thus forming The Carolinas.

Travel from the World Biosphere Reserve to the Appalachian Mountains rising in the west; gently make your way down to what is known as the Piedmont (Central Carolinas) region; venturing to Midlands' quaint small towns and buzzing cities like Greenville and Charlotte. Continue down to the coast of the Carolinas and discover wide golden sands lapped by the waters of the Atlantic Ocean or experience a wonder of nature in sand barrier islands that give holidaymakers the chance to relax in clear, balmy waters.
Experience the history of the Carolinas, from the Cherokee Indians that forced the Trail of Tears, to the Spanish who first settled the area from Europe, to the English settlements in the new world to Blackbeard who plundered down the coast and lived on the Carolina coastline.
