The Piedmont Region of North Carolina
The area from I-95 and the Blue Ridge Parkway is known
as the Piedmont. Most North Carolinians live in this region,
particularly in the areas of Charlotte and Raleigh. The
Piedmont’s Triad region is comprised of Greensboro,
While the Piedmont is an unlikely tourist destination, there is much to do. There are many golf courses, sporting events such as college basketball games, or stock car racing. If you enjoy outdoor activities, there is boating, fishing, swimming, or camping at our parks and lakes. Other things include the NC Zoological Park in Asheboro, Carowinds, or Emerald Pointe.
For those who enjoy cultural attractions, Raleigh
is home to many art, history and natural history museums,
as well as the NC Symphony. In Chapel Hill there is the
planetarium and the Playmakers Theatre. Other places of
interest are Durham’s museum of Life and Science and the
American Dance Festival.
