Attention, foodies! Calling all wine connoisseurs! Hear ye, craft brew lovers!

We’ve mentioned before that North Carolina is great for vacations, but if you haven’t ventured out there yet to get a taste of what they’re serving up, you don’t know what you’re missing. Big cities get a lot of attention for their unique offerings in the foodie scene, but don’t underestimate the secret gem of true Southern cooking and artisanal selections. Whether your passion is food, beer, or wine, North Carolina has something special for you.

If food is your passion…

The South is well known for its cuisine, and North Carolina is famous for everything from fresh seafood to traditional Lexington barbeque. Fried chicken, baby back ribs, pulled pork, baked beans, shrimp and grits, hushpuppies, locally caught always fresh fish, fried green tomatoes, sweet tea…

Is your mouth watering yet? Add to that the joy of Southern hospitality, good company from loved ones along for the ride or new friends and colleagues, and you’ve got a recipe for a great time. Consider a trip to North Carolina a chance to indulge in a culinary adventure. Just check out some of these great locations!

If beer and wine are your thing…

Home of over 150 craft breweries and 400 vineyards across the state, North Carolina boasts something special for connoisseurs. Whether your taste is beer, wine, or maybe a little moonshine, you can sample different varieties on brewery tours and wine tastings or simply ask for local selections in area bars and restaurants.

Visit unique settings like the winery of the Biltmore Estate or Calaboose Cellars, an old stone jailhouse that “incarcerates” its wines or taste test the many organic beers crafted from locally grown heirloom grains. What better way to make your next locums assignment feel more like a vacation?
