Winter in North Carolina means that the lovely fall foliage is long gone and average temperatures continue to decrease. Brrrr! While the winter season brings frigid air to the state, it is also the ideal time of year for a variety of reasons. From December until February, you’ll find unique activities, fun holiday festivities, and much more!
