  1. Default Day trip in eastern NC

    Hey all,

    I'm planning on doing a single-day trip from Chapel Hill, NC to the hope plantation in Windsor, NC (google map here). I've never really been to eastern NC, so I'd like to take a long scenic route. don't mind if it takes all day - there's a couple of us. I'd particularly like to see old tobacco fields and the landscape.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Default Staying on 'Tobacco Road'

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    It won't take all day, but a pleasant route to your destination that includes at least one site that fits your desires would have you bypassing Raleigh to the west and south on NC-55 and NC-42 to the junction with NC-222 which will take you to Kenly and the Tobacco Farm Life Museum. From there, US-310/US-264/NC-111 will take you around Wilson and put you back on NC-42 which will bring you into the area west of Windsor and the Hope Plantation.
