This central region is home to North Carolina’s largest cities, including Charlotte, Raleigh, Greensboro and Durham. These spots offer everything you’d expect in a metropolitan escape, blended with a heart and a character you’ll only find in North Carolina. Top reasons to visit our Piedmont include enjoying wineries, breweries, golf and extensive systems of natural greenways.

In NC, we take great pride in preserving our cities' canopies and greenways. Learn how you can help maintain these cherished outdoor spaces.
