North Carolina-Umstead Hotel-November 28

North Carolina People, Places, and Things-November 28

I am the dad to five adult children. As they were growing up I attempted to remind them they were special and to implore them to learn something new. My goal was to do that daily.

In 2016 my goal is to learn something new daily on the people, places, and things that make North Carolina special. Everyday this year I am doing a post on what I have learned new.

I just completed a trip to Alabama over the Thanksgiving weekend and stayed at very nice hotel in Florence Alabama called the Muscle Shoals Hotel and Spa.


I got thinking about the top hotels in North Carolina and knew that one of them had to be the Umstead in Cary, NC.  I found out it is just one of two five star hotels in the state of North Carolina. The other is Ritz Carlton in Charlotte.

I am came across a great post on the Umstead Hotel if you want to learn more. Thanks to Chelsea and her blog Chey Chey from the Bay for letting me share her blog post.


I have stayed at the Umstead and it is really nice-Chelsea’s post below.
