Outdoor Adventures are plentiful in the Smoky Mountains and the cooler year-round temperatures are a great way to beat the Florida heat. A quick day’s drive will bring you to my favorite place in North Carolina: the NOC "Nantahala Outdoor Center". At the NOC you can experience whitewater rafting, fly fishing, zip lining, hiking, mountain biking and nature at it’s finest. In North Carolina, outdoor experiences range from mild to wild, and the Nantahala River is perfect for beginner whitewater rafters.
