Three Reasons Why I Love Calling North Carolina Home:
(from 100 North Carolina Icons written by Michael Graff for Our State Magazine)
Tweetsie Railroad – On some of the most rugged terrain in the state, brave men built the tracks for a train on which people can hear the engine go “twee-tweet.”
Pinehurst No. 2 – NC has nearly 700 golf courses. The average course sees about 30,000 rounds a year. The average golfer hits 95 shots a round. That’s 21 million shots hit here every year. How many of us would trade them all for just one shot at No. 2?
Wright Brothers – They came from Ohio and made the first flight in N.C. Both states lay claim to the birth of aviation with slogans on license plates –which go on cars.
And that is three reasons why I love the State I am in!
