Visit North Carolina organized two post-familiarization tours around the Travel South Domestic Showcase to show 23 tour operators around the state earlier this month. Wilson was one of the locations in the Coastal Chronicles tour. Other places in the tour were Creswell, Columbia, Edenton, Jacksonville, the Outer Banks and Rocky Mount. The "Crossroads" tour visited Asheboro, Fayetteville, Greensboro, Lexington, Seagrove and Winston-Salem. The Wilson visit included a stop at the Vollis Simpson Whirligig Park and a meal at Parker's Barbecue.
