North Carolina Vacation Packages

Stretching from the Atlantic Ocean’s beaches to the Appalachian Mountains, this state also has exciting cities and charming small towns.

North Carolina has several distinct regions from the ocean to the mountains. The easternmost territory includes the Outer Banks, barrier islands that protect the mainland. Travel up and down these narrow strips of peninsulas and islands to enjoy sandy beaches, iconic lighthouses, giant sand dunes and beautiful sunrises. Visit Kitty Hawk, where the Wright Brothers made some of man’s earliest airplane flights.

Just inland, the town of Wilmington on the Cape Fear River centers on Riverwalk, with numerous shops and restaurants. Nearby, tour the Battleship North Carolina, a highly decorated World War II U.S. battleship.

The Piedmont area is the flat central section of the state. The area around Raleigh is known as the Research Triangle, with the great universities of Wake Forest, UNC at Chapel Hill and North Carolina State. Stroll the beautiful campuses and watch exciting college sports.

Charlotte, one of the nation’s largest banking cities, has an exciting uptown. Visit the area to enjoy professional football, basketball, baseball and NASCAR racing. See performances of the philharmonic orchestra, opera, touring Broadway shows and numerous other artist groups throughout the year at the seven sites of the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center.

Take a family raft adventure at Charlotte’s manmade U.S. National Whitewater Center. If you’re an expert, run the rapids in your own whitewater kayak, or rent one for the day.

West of Charlotte, visit the Appalachian Mountains for outdoor activities. Hike trails to waterfalls. In spring, the hills light up with pink rhododendrons. Although the state is part of the typically warm southern U.S., you’ll find enough cold weather in the mountains for downhill skiing. Try Sugar Mountain Resort or Appalachian Ski Mountain near the college town of Boone.

Asheville is home to the Biltmore Estate, originally owned by George Vanderbilt, now a resort with public access. Explore gardens designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, who created New York’s Central Park. Go horseback riding, hike on wooded trails or take the Christmas tour through the Biltmore home, decorated with more than 50 Christmas trees.

Q: Should I book a car while on vacation in North Carolina?

A: Why waste precious vacation moments waiting for buses and taxis when you could be on the road in your own rental car? Whether you're heading to Charlotte, Raleigh or another big city, a car is one of the best ways to get around. If you're venturing out into the region of Mecklenburg County or someplace else for a long road trip, it makes even more sense. For Cheap Car Hire in North Carolina, we've got you covered.

Q: Which airports can I fly in to for a vacation to North Carolina?

A: Although there are a number of different airports in North Carolina, most international flights arrive and depart from:

  • Charlotte, NC (CLT-Charlotte-Douglas Intl.): 1,194 international flights per month.
  • Raleigh, NC (RDU-Raleigh - Durham Intl.): 184 international flights per month.

Q: What are the most popular types of hotels for a vacation to North Carolina?

A: Most visitors stay in private vacation homes in North Carolina. But you don't need to follow the crowd. You'll also find hotels, condos and motels in abundance here, and they're available for booking with Expedia.

Q: What does a North Carolina vacation booking with Expedia include?

A: There are no limits. We have all the basics, like North Carolina hotels, flights and cars. We've also got lots of attractions and experiences to think about. Secure just one of these options or a mix of a few.

Q: What is the best way to save money on my vacation to North Carolina?

A: We're going to let you in on a little secret — it's called our vacation packages. By locking in your Flights, Hotels and Rental Car with Expedia, you'll score discounts that you'll want to brag about. It's as easy as that. Not quite ready to choose that car or hotel just yet? Don't stress. You'll be able to add them to your existing booking at any time and still get access to fantastic discounts. For example, how does up to 42% off selected hotels sound to you?

Q: What are the best things to do in North Carolina?

A: There are tons of opportunities when staying in Charlotte. If you're unsure where to start, find your way to Spectrum Center, Bank of America Stadium and University of North Carolina at Charlotte.

Duke University, PNC Arena and University of North Carolina are well worth checking out if Raleigh is where you're going to be spending most of your time.

Or, for some other new experiences, find out why Greensboro Coliseum, Elon University and High Point University are popular attractions for people vacationing in Greensboro.
