"It's no surprise why the mountain town of Asheville, North Carolina, is beloved by tourists and residents alike. Nestled in between the Blue Ridge and Appalachian mountains, Asheville is a magnet for outdoor lovers as well as fans of music, art, and craft beer," the Business Insider website says.

2. Hickory, NC. This town finished at number 31 on the list.

"Hickory is for doers and makers seeking a well-rounded community, located between Charlotte and Asheville at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains, along I-40, where a collective spirit of craftsmanship strengthens any endeavor with detail, artistry, and quality. Hickory is the perfect place to work, live, and raise a family," the town's website says.

Another website says, "Hickory, North Carolina is well known for our rich heritage in Furniture Manufacturing but we can't wait to show you how that is just the beginning of the adventures you will find here! Scenic outdoor exploring, Lake adventures, tasty local restaurants that are changing the dining scene in our metro, and more!"

3. Charlotte, NC. This city finished at number 30 on the list.

"From thrilling adventures to moving artistic performances, family play dates, and magnetic nightlife, Charlotte holds something for everyone," their website says.

The Business Insider website says, "The Queen City houses Bank of America's headquarters and major offices for Wells Fargo, making it one of the largest financial hubs in the country."

4. Raleigh-Durham, NC. This city cracked the top 10 on the list, finishing at number 6.

One website says, "Many people who call the Raleigh and Durham metro areas home are young, friendly, diverse, and educated. They enjoy dining out in local restaurants – many of which have earned national accolades – and gathering over craft beers in one of the region's many microbreweries."

The city's website says, "You won't find a better range of ways to treat yourself than in the Triangle of North Carolina.
