Description

As the Lafayette's Tour Scenic Byway unfolds, so does some of North Carolina's history as a region of plantations and old southern architecture. Historic cities and landmarks are plentiful along the byway, and visitors will find themselves trasported to another time period.

During his tour of the country in 1825, General Lafayette of France followed the route that is now a North Carolina Scenic Byway. His love for the area can be understood by visitors as they enjoy the state parks and historical sites along the way.
