Nestled in the heart of eastern NC between Raleigh and the coast, we are a destination with rich culture and heritage. Our heritage has deep military and agricultural roots. And, let’s not forget to mention our legendary BBQ! We sum up ourselves with 4 Ps: pigs, pickles, planes, and poultry!
We are the proud home to Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, one of the best (and oldest!) fighter communities in the world, Mt. Olive Pickle Company, Cliffs of the Neuse State Park, Beak Week Poultry Festival, award-winning historic downtown, NC Pickle Festival and Wings Over Wayne Air Show.
