No matter whether you’re a fan of the Dukies or you bleed Carolina Blue, you’ll love North Carolina. Both Duke and UNC operate their own basketball museums, a tribute to their program's success and the players they have sent to the NBA, while our staff regularly arrange NCAA Experiences with these programs, and others, along the famed Tobacco Road.
High schools in North Carolina conduct excellent holiday tournaments and single games are also readily available for club and school teams throughout December and January. Competition is suitable for domestic to high-level representative for boys and domestic to mid-level representative for girls. Many of these schools offer welcoming homestay and classroom experiences.
Groups touring North Carolina can chose to visit neighbouring Virginia and Washington DC to sightsee. NC has its own attractions including Battleship North Carolina, a retired US Naval ship; the Wright Brothers Memorial, a tribute to the first successful air flight; Biltmore Estate, the largest privately-owned house in America; and the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte, where groups can also take in NBA and NFL games.
For those who are fascinated by the Duke-UNC rivalry, Carolina is a must see destination.
