Ever heard the phrase from Murphy to Manteo? We hear it quite a bit! North Carolina is a BIG state and its a phrase that represents the sheer size – the westernmost and easternmost town in the state of NC.
It’s amazing to me! There are so many people that ride their bicycle, walk, and run the 545 mile trip from Murphy to Manteo. Every year, there are organizations and fundraisers that have races from one end to the other to raise funds for a cause. That’s dedication! I was reading several folks that did it in 7-9 days – that’s quick! Now to make the drive, it takes a solid 9 hours to complete the drive – and you never leave the state!
North Carolina is a gorgeous state and if you love the mountains of North Carolina, Murphy is the place for you to call home. In my very biased opinion, there’s no prettier or better place to live in the entire world than Murphy 🙂 So while you’re here in the mountains, be sure to check out the area and buy some real estate! We’re always looking for good neighbors!
