lol yes Wilmington does.

Many people are surprised High Point has a skyline even though its small. High Point has a dense skyline partly due to all the furniture showrooms. The Showplace in High Point is actually the largest convention center in the state.

Guilford County is the only county in North Carolina that has two urban core cities with skylines (Greensboro & High Point). Greensboro has 273,000 people and High Point has 100,000. Both the cities have grown together so its like one big city.

I cant post these photos here but here are the links

Wikipedia has a picture of the skylines in those cities. I assume those are the best views of each skyline

List of municipalities in North Carolina - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Going by that, it would have to be:
1)Charlotte
2)Raleigh
3)W/S
4)Asheville
5)Greensboro
