Megan & Harrison

About Us

This is a wholehearted mission to live abundantly locally.

NC Eat & Play was created by Megan Nichols, a mom, wife, and North Carolina native who took to social media sharing great food finds and adventures with her husband Harrison and growing family. Her posts and photography soon began to capture a wide audience of followers who seek out authentic voices for local discoveries.


More than 230,000 social media followers and growing!

An amazing 200,000+ on Tik Tok!

Megan’s passion for her local community and her desire for having the most fun living in our great state is truly evident in her work. Every day, followers and brands seek out her scrumptious photography and captivating storytelling, making it one of the most talked-about and fastest-growing channels in North Carolina.


We strive to share moments from large and small cities from the mountains to the coasts of North Carolina, and everything in between.

Our coverage is anchored in our home area of Raleigh, but we happily travel regularly to capture destination-worthy restaurants, hidden gems, and attractions.

Three Distinct Explorations


Local Foodie

Empowered by our love of local and our need to stay rooted in our communities, we are at our happiest when we support chefs, cooks, artisans, and owners who make living in North Carolina so delicious.

Family Friendly Activities

We are always seeking great ways for local families to enjoy their communities without overextending their budgets. We try to showcase places that cater to hard-working families offering discounts like “Kids Eat Free” or special happenings for families to enjoy at a low cost.

NC Indulgences

We all need to indulge sometimes, right? Maybe for a special occasion or celebration? Maybe it’s to break away from the norm? We believe everyone deserves something special now and then. We also know a little can go a long way. That’s why we curate the littlest indulgences to the grander ones.


We offer a variety of services for your business including social media promotions, web stories, photography, video storytelling, on-site events, and strategic partnerships.

Creating & Sharing

Social Media

We continue to place high importance on regularly sharing on social media. Our channels are filled with great grammable pictures and moments that are viewed, liked, and shared.

Content Creation

In addition to our social media, we have begun producing content to help showcase interesting stories, helpful guides, special features, and interviews. Our content includes, but is not limited to our website, email newsletter, videos, podcasts, events, and more.


Megan’s talent to create moments that are liked and shared to help small businesses is a key ingredient for NC Eat & Play.
