Mix up your exercise routine. North Carolina has so much natural beauty to discover, so take in the sights while burning some of those pesky calories at the same time.
Our local bike trails are as varied as our regions. There’s the 23-mile American Tobacco Trail in the Triangle, or the easy to advanced trails at the U.S. National Whitewater Center in Charlotte. For a leisurely ride, rent a bike and view the gorgeous landscape on a scenic byway. Want to try something a little more challenging? The Brevard area is known as the Cycling Capital of the South, while the High Country delivers extreme thrills at Beech Mountain, Sugar Mountain and Rocky Knob Park.
North Carolina has a wonderful variety of nature trails. You can take a hourlong walk to a waterfall or hike the day in a state park. Looking for a more extreme adventure? Plan a hike on the Appalachian Trail or trek the 1,000-mile Mountains-to-Sea Trail, which stretches from the Great Smoky Mountains to the Outer Banks.
National Geographic named Wrightsville Beach one of the world’s 20 best surf towns for its appeal to beginners and pros alike. Haven’t attempted paddleboarding yet?

Also, try whitewater rafting there or in the mountains, or keep it a little more laid back with canoeing or kayaking on the lake.
