Each week this summer we will highlight an item from our North Carolina Digital Collections in the hopes of inspiring you to discover new-to-you materials. This month our theme will be vacations.

Is anyone else getting excited about the Fourth of July holiday? I am so thrilled to spend vacation with family and friends. One of my favorite places to visit in North Carolina is the mountains. We are very fortunate to live so close to various mountains ranges across the west coast of good ole N.C.

A great collection that highlights the mountains is the Travel and Tourism Photos Collection. The collection contains 1130 images from the North Carolina Conservation and Development Department, Travel and Tourism Division Photo Files. This collection was a joint project with the State Archives of North Carolina and the State Library of North Carolina.

Have a fun and safe holiday weekend!
