    Good choice that, North Carolina for adventure. Check out Asheville and the Smokies to its west, including a great 12-mile dayhike up Mt. Cammerer (more info on hiking and things to do in the Smokies at http://gorp.away.com/gorp/resource/us_national_park/tn/hi_smok.htm). In the same vicinity, you've also got the Nantahala Gorge, with some primo mountain biking and whitewater rafting (more ideas and info at http://vacation.away.com/north-carolina/travel-v2-cid9222-nantahala-national-forest-cid350266-active-and-adventure-vacations.html). Then there's the coast, too, especially the Outer Banks, which offers camping, surfing, kiteboarding, and scuba (more info at http://vacation.away.com/north-carolina/travel-v2-cid362308-outer-banks-cid350266-active-and-adventure-vacations.html). Outside magazine did a good road-trip feature on the Outer Banks, albeit several years ago, at http://away.com/outside/destinations/200307/200307_roadtrip_2.html. Hope this helps. Have a great trip

    Best I could do was find recommendations for 30 East, located close to the Charlotte Nature Museum. Looks like a nice place for a nosh. Discovery Place also serves light snacks and lunches at its Community Cafe. Haven't eaten there personally, though my experience of museum-served fare is far from inspiring!

    One of the signature events that heralds the arrival of spring and all those wildflowers is the Masters golf tournament in Augusta, GA, which occurs at the beginning of April. The peak blooms, however, typically come toward the end of April, beginning of May, though obviously depends on the amount of rainfall, type of winter that precedes. Other spring blooms to enjoy around the South include dogwoods, rhododendrons, and red buds. Head up to Asheville and the Blue Ridge Parkway for some spectacular mountain colors, too! North Carolina Tourism does a good job of tracking the blooms via links such as following: http://bit.ly/gmsPfR
