North Carolina’s places are as varied as its landscapes. In the mountains, Asheville and Boone have long appealed to visitors, and smaller towns like Brevard and Lake Lure have an energy all their own. Piedmont cities from Charlotte to Raleigh and Fayetteville to Winston-Salem have countless things to do, the Sandhills boasts world-class golf, and the Yadkin Valley is home to dozens of wineries. Our beaches are some of the best in the nation according to Dr. Beach and The Weather Channel, and Beaufort and Edenton are known as America's "coolest" and "prettiest" small towns.
