#outaboutNC: 5 Shots that Make You Want to Visit N.C.

Since I established the #outaboutnc community on Instagram in late January, we now have over 3,000 photos in the public feed for our online travel guide.  I check it daily and I love seeing what people in North Carolina are recommending for others to see, do, eat, and where to stay when they visit North Carolina.

We have a lot of scenic photos, but we're still working on getting the other travel recommendations up. I think hotels and inns are more my own personal thing so we have less of that, but I'm so thrilled that N.C. locals and tourists are embracing the hashtag. I've learned about so many places since I started the feed.  I try to feature at least one photo a day on the main @Outaboutnc Instagram account. This photo is from Mt. Holly, N.C., which is a place I've not visited in North Carolina.

For #IGTravelThursday, I'm picking some photos from the public feed to share with you. I'm going to try to break it down into travel categories.

When you view the #outaboutnc, you do not have a hard time finding a photo showcasing North Carolina's natural beauty. There is a reason why we are the number 6th visited state in the U.S. Instagram user and photographer ssprenz captured this gorgeous photo of Montreat during a hike. 

Hiked in #Montreat before our lunch. Such a lovely view and the sound of the water was so soothing.
