Hands-down, although not in the competition, this award goes to the Triad area and the distinction between Raleigh/Charlotte is a wash.
And then Asheville, also not included in competition, trumps them all.

Now, you are cheating and fudging answers. Let's give the Triad some exposure, most people don't even know a laidback metro possessing picturesque qualities with a CSA population of 1.6 million lies directly in the middle of the 3 hr drive from raleigh to charlotte.....just sayin.

Both Charlotte and Raleigh are pretty, it's hard to pick between them. Most regions and cities in NC are beautiful, I've always loved the Winston-Salem area. However, the Coastal Plain region between the Triangle and the coast is a bit ugly to be completely honest, just swampy lowlands and flat farmland.

Comparing Charlotte and Raleigh in terms of natural beauty is basically comparing apples to apples, and they're both Granny Smith's! They're green and they look pretty much the same. They're both very pleasant, but neither is dramatically beautiful. Both clean and green.

Well, I'll say this: I was deciding between Charlotte and Raleigh, and I ultimately chose Charlotte. When I visited Raleigh, there was nothing about it that "wowed" me. Not saying it wasn't nice. It just didn't wow me. The moment I set foot in Charlotte, I was "wowed."
