Asheville, North Carolina — As the North Carolina doorway to the Smoky Mountains, this city of about 78,300 residents offers a mix of eclectic urban charm and outdoor recreational adventure. Its downtown alone supports more than 30 art galleries, and the nearby mountains offer everything from fly fishing and mountain biking to zipline canopy tours and whitewater rafting.

Boone, North Carolina — In 2005, this town of about 15,000 residents in the North Carolina highlands was named one of the nation's four best multi-sport recreational areas by Adventure Sports Magazine. The publication lauded the town for its many outdoor recreational opportunities, including hiking, biking and kayaking. It was particularly impressed with the 200 miles of mountain biking trails available in the nearby Pisgah National Forest. Other nearby attractions include Linville Caverns, Blowing Rock and Grandfather Mountain. In addition to outdoor recreation, Boone is the home to Appalachian State University, a public university which has placed among the nation's top 15 southern universities in the annual US News and World Report Best College Guide since the rankings began in 1986. Boone is located in Watauga County about 100 miles from the City of Charlotte.
Concord, North Carolina — The capital of Cabarrus County, this city of about 79,000 is racing toward the future on the heels of the motorsports industry. Home to Lowe's Motor Speedway, more than 90 percent of all NASCAR teams are located within 50 miles of the city, and more than 200 ancillary businesses in Cabarrus County support the motorsports industry. The nearly 180,000 people who attend the annual Coca Cola 600 make Concord the state's fourth-largest city each Memorial Day weekend. Cabarrus County also ranks third in state tourism expenditures. A major draw, besides Lowes Motor Speedway, is Concord Mills, a "shopper-tainment" facility that receives 17 million visitors a year. Concord is located in Cabarrus County only 20 miles from the City of Charlotte.
Gastonia, North Carolina — While often overshadowed by the City of Charlotte, Gastonia offers proximity to a major metropolitan area with a much lower cost of living. The annual Council for Community and Economic Research (C2ER) Cost-of-Living Surveys consistently rank Gastonia/Gaston County as one of the communities with the lowest cost-of-living in the Southeast.* The nearby Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens includes nearly 400 acres of rolling meadows, woodland and lakefront property. The Garden's Orchid Conservatory is the Charlotte metropolitan region's only public conservatory devoted to the display of tropical plants. In addition to the botanical gardens, residents can enjoy The U.S. National Whitewater Center (USNWC), the world's largest manmade whitewater facility and outdoor center, located just across the Catawba River.

Hickory, North Carolina — Furniture is what Hickory is all about. This city of about 41,000 is the home of the Hickory Furniture Mart — the largest of its kind in the nation — and the portion of US 321 between Hickory and Blowing Rock is known locally as the "20 miles of furniture." But the city also contains a planetarium, aquarium, children's science museum and the first collection of American Art to be assembled outside of New York City. But perhaps its biggest draw is its geographic location, about an hour from Lake James (where "Hunt for Red October" and "The Last of the Mohicans" was filmed), the Blue Ridge Parkway, the City of Charlotte and the Piedmont Triad. It is also the home of Lenoir-Rhyne University. No wonder Hickory is a three-time winner of the All-American City Award (1967, 1987 and 2007), given annually by the National Civic League to only 10 cities nationwide.
