Beaufort, North Carolina, the third oldest town in the state and ranked America’s coolest small town in 2012, is a coastal town just north of Wilmington.

Spend your evenings staying in the historic Pinehurst Resort, comprised of the Carolina Hotel, the Holly Inn, the Manor Inn and the Condos at Pinehurst for the full experience.
If you’re looking for a fun town to vacation in the North Carolina mountains, head to Asheville for a snowy getaway. Asheville is an eclectic mountain town just a couple hours from the Tennessee border where you can find live music around nearly every corner, a bustling local beer scene, and a diverse arts community. After visiting the downtown area, head to the famous Biltmore Estate for a look into the largest estate in the country and a glimpse into the grandeur of this stunning Gilded Age mansion.
