North Carolina’s 50
Best Cities for Sleep

2020

The beautiful Tar Heel State joined the Union in 1789 and was one of the original Thirteen Colonies. Its illustrious history includes ten thousand years of settlement by indigenous people, exploration by the Spanish, and a visit by the famous pirate Blackbeard, who once dropped anchor in present-day Carteret County. Today, North Carolina is a center of technology and academia, and its beaches and mountains are a draw for tourists from around the globe. 

Fast facts about North Carolina:

  • Baseball player Babe Ruth hit his first home run in Fayetteville, North Carolina on March 7, 1914
  • The Wright Brothers experimented with early prototypes of their flying machine in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina
  • Famous folks from North Carolina include jazz musician John Coltrane, actress Julianne Moore, and first lady Dolley Madison, wife of President James Madison
  • Asheville, North Carolina has more breweries per capita than any other city in the US
  • Thanks to its mild, tuber-friendly climate, North Carolina produces more sweet potatoes than any other state in the country

So how do the residents of this great state slumber? Do Southern nights help to promote healthy sleep? Who’s got the edge when it comes to Zzz’s, rural or urban dwellers? Read on, because we’ve got the complete rundown below.

30 %
