Renters can enjoy North Carolina's diversity from miles of sandy beaches to vast woodlands and parks. There is something for everyone. The Outer Banks is a very popular destination for summer home renters and vacationers. But there are many other beaches and even small islands to explore. Other outdoor attractions include the Cliffs of the Neuse State Park in Seven Springs, NC and Old Salem Museums and Gardens in Winston-Salem.
The Biltmore House is America's largest home and features century old gardens in Asheville, NC. While in Asheville, take time to see the Colburn Earth Science Museum and the Asheville Art Museum. In Wilmington, the Cape Fear Museum, Children's Museum of Wilmington and nearby Battleship North Carolina are top destinations for residents and visitors.
Kids will certainly enjoy the Carowinds Themepark in Charlotte, Wet 'N Wild Emerald Pointe Water Park in Greensboro, Fascinate-U Children's Museum in Fayetteville, and the Lynnwood Park Zoo in Jacksonville.
One reason many renters come to North Carolina is to attend one of the many colleges such as North Carolina State University, Duke University, East Carolina University, University of North Carolina and Wake Forest University. Research Triangle Park in the Raleigh-Durham area is home to many high-tech firms such as Nortel and Cisco.
