We are looking for tips for where to eat, stay, and play in the great state of North Carolina.

 How to enter:

Use the form below to submit your entry. Simply fill in the information about the location, their website, and social handles. You will receive 1 entry for each submission and winners will be drawn from the pool of entries.

Hot Spot Entries: Much like an online review, please tell us about your favorite North Carolina location and why you love it. If you have a personal photo that we can include (perhaps you’ve posted in on your social media account or link to an online photo sharing site), all the better (optional)! 

Photo Entries: If you have a great photos that you took and own all the rights to, we would love to see them and perhaps feature them on our site. Please submit only your best, only one per subject or location. In other words, don’t link to every photo you have ever taken…please pre-select the best of the best!

The fine print: No purchase necessary, void where state law prohibits, and odds of winning will depend on the number of entries, this contest is not endorsed by an social media network including Facebook, Instagram, YouTube or Google.

One “Hot Spot” Winner will receive $100 Gift Certificate for Amazon
One PHOTO winner will receive $100 Gift Certificate for Amazon
