Great show!

We have a 2nd home in NC but only get to visit several times a year. This show is great for information about festivals, small towns and great stories about all parts of the state. It covers the mountains, piedmont and coast. Very interesting and informative and fun to watch as a tourist for future travel ideas.

Enriching and Informative clips on the people, places, and living in NC.

Program is produced very well, the areas of coverage and storis are varied and enriching. I recommend both young and old alike, local North Carolinian, visiting tourists, new relocatees or curious people from across the globe to look at the the many treasures and neat things, places, and people the meet and do in this lovely state. To have this program at your fingertips on a small device like the iPod or your PC is a real treat especially if you want to apply what you learned on the program as a family or individual trip or experience.
