I will be leaving Asheville NC after lunch and need to arrive in Chapel Hill some time the next day. The trip will be on a weekday in early November. I will have a rental car and 24 hours for the perfect solo retreat - where should I go? [more inside]
This weekend, my wife and I will be taking our trusty hound, Rosie to Asheville, NC. We're looking for outdoorsy things to do or places to go that we could enjoy together (as well as human only places, though many people have that question before). Suggestions for hikes, activities, restaurants, shops, etc. are welcome!
I'm in Alexandria Va., and will be going down to the Outer Banks in NC (Corolla/Duck) again soon. I've pretty much always gone straight down I-95, but is there a better route? As anyone who has driven it knows, I-95 on summer weekends.... well, let's just say it's a foretaste of hell, and maybe there's a better plan.

Mrs. Monkeysuit and I plan to retire to NC this year. We like the looks of the Greensboro area, but have never spent any time there. We're northern liberals. How would that work for us? [more inside]

Very last minute trip to Asheville, NC and wondering what to do for four days! Can anyone recommend zip line tours? Hikes are a plus but concerned it might be touristy? Should probably check out the Biltmore? Sorry, just internet overwhelmed and its coming down to the wire. Details are me, partner and three teenage girls that are up for anything. Beers a plus for the adults!

Freecellwizard and I will be heading to Asheville, NC for a week with two kids, ages 9 and 11. Although we've visited the area several times, we've never had the kids with us and are wondering if there are kid-specific fun things to see/do up there that would appeal to a pair of Pokemon/Minecraft/Steven Universe/Undertale-loving children who must be cajoled away from their various digital devices.

I moved to Raleigh, NC a while ago. I like it here a lot. It's great. I'm really glad I moved here. Now I have a friend coming out to visit. I'd like to show her around. This is kind of embarrassing, but I don't know where to take her. I've spent the entire time I've been here either working or riding. She isn't super into horses. [more inside]

What would you consider musts for a nature and history lover in that area?

Any suggestions on what to do outside the secure area of the Charlotte airport? I'd go to the whitewater center nearby, but I think it closes in an hour from now. I'm waiting for a relative to pick me up Relevant: I have a camera and enjoy photography.

How could you find a building when all you know about it is what it looks like from above and roughly where it is (with a large margin of error, giving a triangle with an area of about 1,900 square miles)? Is there any tool/database/search that might help with this, or would finding it be a matter of putting the question to people who live in the area (or, for the less social, strictly a brute-force problem)?

I'm going to fly out to North Carolina, The Triangle, for a few days to start scouting for house. It's a big area. I'm not sure where to start. I work from home so the commute isn't an issue. It's more about finding a nice place to live. [more inside]

Your recommendations would be very welcome. [more inside]
