Our series of the best movies shot in each state continues with the two states where nothin’ could be finer.

Had we split Carolina films into two lists, there’d have been too many Nicholas Sparks films even our chick flick loving hearts to handle.

There may still be too much Sparks and for that we apologize.

Who are we kidding? Love means never having to say you’re sorry.

And with that…
