Which cities do you feel best embody this? Wilmington? Winston-Salem? If you have any anecdotes I'd love to hear them.

New Bern and Wilmington. They have done a good job preserving old homes and historical sites. If you consider Edenton a city, that would be one for sure. Winston-Salem, High Point, Lexington, and Hendersonville to a lesser extent. Since the eastern part of NC was settled first, they tend to have preserved their southern charm due to the rich history.

I think Greensboro is a city with good bones from manufacturing days

Greensboro-WinstonSalem-Highpoint would probably be my pick.

It really depends on how you define "charm". Is it the buildings? The scenery? The people?

Some of the places with attractive buildings or scenery may lack charm in the vibe you get from the people (exclusive and aloof).
Sorry Asheville fans, but it comes to my mind as an example here (reasonable people may disagree).

Some places may be struggling more and not the most attractive in some areas but have genuinely charming gems of people.
Places like Rockingham, Thomasville, Wilkesboro, and Elizabethtown come to mind (although there can be pretty scenery around these areas in places).
