Prior to my 36 hours in Randolph County, my knowledge of The Heart of North Carolina was limited.  I knew Randolph County’s city of Asheboro is home to the North Carolina Zoo, however, I did not expect to find miles of pottery, orchards, camels, and breweries, among other things.  I often travel alone, however, this trip would be different.  Along with The Heart of NC tourism team, I had the pleasure of traveling with other like-minded professionals.  Together, we explored The Heart of NC Fall Bucket List Tour.
