Being new and being explorers by heart we wanted to see and experience all the Carolinas' have to offer.


And we can tell you...the Carolinas' offer ALOT!!


On one end of the Carolinas' there is the Atlantic ocean, with ample supply of fabulous blue sea tossing against nebulous islands and shores of impressive dunes.


A Unique Perspective!

Carolina One Tank Trips is not your average destination review site. 


This site is about a unique perspective...from our eyes and the eyes of anyone who journey's with us.


The concept, like most new things was birthed out of necessity.  


Our family relocated to Charlotte, NC in 2008 and like many others who have gone before us, we didn't know very many people. 

On the other end the mountains of the Great Smokey, Blue Ridge and Appalachian.


From the pinnacle there is expansive, lush and towering, misty and silent, charming and inviting peaks, covered in a blueish cloud that calls you to explore.


These are some of the oldest mountains on planet earth...much older than the Himalayas or even the Swiss Alps.  


An absolute treasure to have in our backyard.


In between all of this we find an abounding number of getaway ideas, fun things to do, and tourism activities attractions that will satisfy everyone...including the kids!

Will You Join Us In Our Discovery?

That was the questioned we asked ourselves.  


Where do we go? When we moved we just had our first son and he was 9 weeks old when we arrived.


Our initial process of discovering the Carolina's was wrapped up in things we could do as a family that we, as adults, would find fun, interesting and unique while enjoying our time with our new addition.


As our son has grown up, we've sought out new adventures that have taken us from Coastal gems like Charleston, SC to the Ski Slopes of Boone, NC.  


And with the recent economics of the US we have had to learn to find discounts, cheap family activities and even FREE fun things to do...and believe us there are a bountiful supply of fun, cheap family activities to discover in North and South Carolina.
