Have you ever paused to marvel at the surprises experienced through our digitally connected world? My guess is that all of you answered a resounding YES to that question. Perhaps you reconnected with a friend through Facebook or have seen your friends’ travel pictures or grandchildren via another social media site. We are all impacted daily by this amazing phenomenon which has become part of the fabric of today’s society.

An interesting thing happened in my social media world when the first edition of the visit NC concierge newsletter arrived in your mailboxes in January. I received an email from a childhood friend, currently living in Florida, that included a Buzzfeed article entitled 15 Stunning North Carolina Towns You Absolutely Need to Visit that another childhood friend and classmate had posted on her Facebook page.

FOUR of visit NC concierge’s 2016 tours are to towns listed in this post! Wow! It’s fabulous that North Carolina is receiving so many accolades from near and far. BuzzFeed has a global audience of 200 million! The wonderful thing about living in our state is that we don’t have to travel great distances to visit and enjoy these stunning places.

Preview of Our Spring Trips

visit NC concierge’s spring extravaganza continues in Asheville May 17-19. This 3-day, 2-night trip to scenic western North Carolina is truly an immersion experience into the arts and culture of the mountains. We’ll explore Biltmore, the area’s crown jewel, and learn more about North Carolina State Parks and the National Park Service as we celebrate the centennial anniversary of both. Click here for Asheville tour details. (Just a little tidbit of cultural news in the Triangle -- the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences is partnering with the North Carolina Symphony in March to present a multimedia experience that combines the stirring music of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons with breathtaking imagery of nature across our state, celebrating the North Carolina State Parks' 100th anniversary. Catch it if you can! Learn more here.)

I appreciated your feedback from the inaugural issue of this newsletter. Please continue to share your thoughts and ideas. I love hearing from you and hope to see you on one or more of our upcoming trips!
