Glass Beach in Fort Bragg, North Carolina. I want to visit this place someday! This ocean coast used to be a dump and now it's a protected state park but all the glass thrown into the ocean has now been beaten and returned to shore as sea glass!
The Grove Arcade in downtown Asheville, NC, features lots of great shops and restaurants. It is located in one of the most popular areas in downtown. Just the interior of the building is amazing. (Just 60 Miles from Cherokee, NC)
