Filming In North Carolina

The state is home to Mount Mitchell, which is the highest peak east of the Mississippi River, and other scenic beauties like the Millpond State Park and the Linville Gorge. Combine this with lively cities, unique towns, and a rich colonial history, North Carolina offers great locations to shoot at.
