Outdoor NC

With 322 miles of ocean shoreline, vast mountain landscapes, hundreds of waterfalls, 41 State Parks and 14 National Park Service units, North Carolina has endless opportunities for recreation and adventure.

Recently Visit NC, along with the NC Outdoor Recreation Industry Association and Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics, partnered to create an initiative to ensure our treasured outdoor resources continue to thrive for the 51 million people who visit these spaces annually. We know that our outdoor spaces bring visitors from around the world, but also 63% of residents that recreate outdoors, do so within 10 miles of where they live. It’s important to all forms of economic development.

Interested partners can take the pledge and become a member of the Partner Alliance. With membership, comes assets to help your business or community spread the word to visitors and residents.
