The NC Main to Main Trail gains exposure in the state's 9 NC Welcome Centers. Through a partnership, posters are now prominently displayed, encouraging tourists to visit communities on the NC Main to Main Trail during their time in North Carolina.
The new NC Main to Main Trail initiative is an additional opportunity to support the economic recovery of North Carolina’s rural communities and small businesses.
Divided into eight regions, the Main to Main Trail is defined by the state’s Prosperity Zones: Western, Northwest, Southwest, Piedmont-Triad, North Central, Sandhills, Northeast and Southeast. Each region of the trail has a descriptive paragraph about the offerings, a graphic shield, a map that connects the Main Street communities, and links to other trails that can be explored.
Each town’s link highlights their best downtown and outdoor experiences and connects the visitor to the local Main Street program website, VisitNC and local tourism websites. The Main Street Directors are working collaboratively to market their regions and to build events that will attract day trippers and weekenders to explore all that each region has to offer.
