August 2017 Featured Destination: Johnston County, NC
Wednesday, August 16, 2017 12:00 AM

Johnston County, 30 minutes east of Raleigh, is far enough away from the urban areas of The Triangle to offer visitors the charm of farm life and small town living! 

What makes your destination special?

Johnston County is historically a rural, agrarian society that happens to be uniquely situated where I-95 and I-40 meet. It is also in close proximity to Raleigh, the capital of North Carolina, and less than an hour from RDU International Airport. This dichotomy puts Johnston County on the map as a highly reachable destination with a charmingly rural appeal. The accessibility means that Johnston County has a lot to offer like museums, breweries, and shopping, but the county’s entrepreneurial and community-centered spirit means that everything revolves around the many farms that call Johnston County home.

What got you into travel writing?

When I was a child in Montreal, my mother always took me with her to the butcher shop. On the wall behind the deli case, there was a picture of a beautiful, dark-eyed woman wearing red dress with gold thread woven through it and a jewel on her forehead. I asked my mother about it, and she told me it was a calendar with pictures of India, which was a country far from where we lived. I knew at that moment that I would go there someday.  That thought was the birth of my love of travel. Being a journalist, travel writing was a given for me.
