North Carolina’s 50
Top Cities for Fit Lifestyles

2020

Spanning various terrains, North Carolina is a state that presents more than just southern charm. The Appalachian Mountains in the west and Atlantic coastline in the east combine to create a territory meant for fitness enthusiasts. A scrawling countryside offers yet another landscape for activities such as biking, running, and hunting. More urban cities like Charlotte, Raleigh, and Durham beckon in travelers seeking the modern gym facilities, farm-to-table eateries, and organic markets that make living healthy effortless.

Interesting things to know about North Carolina: 

  • Asheville, North Carolina, has the most craft breweries per capita in the nation. 
  • Putt-putt golf was created in Fayetteville in 1954. 
  • North Carolina is the leading sweet potato producer of the United States with about 60% of all sweet potatoes produced in the state.
