On Monday, BuzzFeed released its "23 Reasons You'll Always Have North Carolina in Your Heart."

Why the Tar Heel state? For one thing, "because downtown Raleigh is breathtakingly beautiful at night and it has the best bars in the whole state," the website claims.

Other Triangle-related attributes offered as reasons to love North Carolina:

  • "Because there's no other rivalry quite like Carolina vs. Duke."
  • "Because Bright Leaf food products (Smithfield) are the absolute best, especially the hot dogs."
  • "Because there's nothing quite as special as going to the state fair in Raleigh, N.C. with your significant other."
  • "And no meal is as satisfying as eastern style bbq with a side of hush puppies, baked beans, and slaw."

The Outer Banks, the Blue Ridge Mountains, Krispy Kreme doughnuts andJames Taylor's "Carolina on my mind" are also cited as reasons to love the great state of North Carolina.
