A good drive is hard to find. For one, there are pesky laws and public safety considerations, ugh. For another, there are 4.12 million miles of road in America, most of which pass by Taco Bells and Walmarts and farmland. Digging out a scenic, serpentine road from that monotonous maze is a real chore.
Thankfully, if you’re in North Carolina, you do have a leg up. Don’t let our NASCAR heritage fool you: our roads have way more to offer than ovals. From winding coastal drives to rolling Piedmont hills to the treacherous curves of the Appalachians, you and your vehicle of choice will have many adventures.
Before we begin, let us remind you to be careful. These are not race tracks, and you do not own a race car (if you do, hit up VIR or Charlotte Motor Speedway!) Your thrilling drive needn’t come at the expense of others.
