Lodging data recently released
by Visit NC shows that commercial lodging in North Carolina has once again
broken a half-year record in terms of total room demand.
North Carolina year-to-date
demand growth outpaces the South Atlantic region (+0.6 percent) and U.S.
demand growth (-0.5 percent). Since 2000, year-to-date demand through June
in N.C., meaning the number of commercial room nights sold of more than 18
million, has grown 38 percent in 19 years.

the first parking area. The greenway is in between the parking lot and Hwy
321. It's less than a 5-minute walk.
