HD Carolina is a website that provides high-definition videos of things to see and do in the Carolinas. We love our coastal and mountain regions, and we are proud to introduce others to the beauty of the area. Both North and South Carolina are home to many excellent colleges and universities, and they attract students from all over the world. However, we understand that some students have a hard time graduating due to financial concerns, and that’s why we are offering a $500 scholarship to a student who is attending or planning to attend college in the Carolinas.
We have all been out exploring or driving around and wondered the same questions: What hiking trails are near me? What waterfalls are close by? What are some interesting things to do that are near by? These are completely reasonable questions since your smartphone knows everything about you including your exact location at any moment. Yet these questions are surprisingly difficult to answer through traditional search queries. Most of the websites that come up are too general and the online maps, like Google Maps, are often incomplete or return inaccurate information.

The Wilkes Heritage Museum in Wilkesboro North Carolina has announced this years inductees to the Blue Ridge Music Hall of Fame. As with previous years, all of the inductees will be honored and officially put into the Hall of Fame during a live ceremony and show on June 9th, 2018. If you like traditional mountain music and culture from the Blue Ridge region, you should really consider attending this event. It is well produced and will feature live performances from either the inductees themselves, their families, or the house band which is comprised of some amazing pickers. The music is always outstanding and the evening will end with everyone up on the stage for a final jam (which is ALWAYS good!). So, who are the inductees for this year?
