What is the most relaxing destination in North Carolina?

Please vote and we'll tally the numbers.

Maybe for you it is Ocracoke. It's a long haul but very relaxing at the end of the journey. There's not a whole lot to do except consume bountiful quantities of fresh seafood, kick back in a beach lounger with a book and listen to the gulls and waves.

Maybe it's Bald Head Island with its absence of car traffic and dense maritime forest dripping with Spanish Moss.

Maybe it is Roan Mountain shrouded in Appalachian clouds but ablaze with Catawba rhododendron in late June.

Don't let me sway you. Stand up for your own Most Relaxing Destination where you can count on good sleep, beautiful scenery and a gentle yet soul stirring experience.
