All in all, I have to give this one to Charlotte. Raleigh and Durham do a great job as well. Greensboro's was good. I was expecting more from Winston-Salem's site.

Charlotte and Greensboro's were very good, Winston-Salem's was easy to navigate but I didn't like how the interior content was laid out. What's up with Asheville, Wilmington, Raleigh, and Durham making you browse to a different page instead of having "fly-out" menus??? Get with it. Couldn't rate High Point's, it wouldn't pull up....

Wilmington's site looks pretty impressive. Good content, and probably the best visual display of all the sites.

I liked Wilmington's site, but the quality of the pictures wasn't all that great.

I like the way Raleigh's site looked at initial load up. I think the flash pics made the presentation more professional. However as far as overall I would give the nod to Wilmington.

I like Wilmington's site the best. There is a nice guide that you can download about the Wilmington Area.

definitely Asheville, it's not even close. it's the most user-friendly, understandable, and it uses space well. i'm not a big fan of flash sites or image-heavy tables.

Durham takes the cake, the first page isn't too long and the... well the theme is why it wins my vote. :P

As a web develper myself, I have to say that the Charlotte, Durham and Raleigh sites might be the best designed. They also to some extent convey something about the particular style or characther of the city they represent. This is true of Fayetteville and Winston-Salem, but they are not as successful. Greensboro's site has brash colors that don't really convey much about it and High Point's was just plain dissapointing. It's no surprise that the best use of modern web development tools (flash and CSS) would come from places preceved as high tech like the Triangle or Charlotte.

Charlotte and Wilmington have redesigned their sites from when I last viewed them, and both are improvements (Charlotte's was already good). But what's up with this slogan on Charlotte's site: "CHARLOTTE - THE GATEWAY TO THE SOUTH"? That's a new one to me and it really doesn't make any sense. Charlotte isn't on the edge of Southern (which is what "Gateway" implies), it's right in the thick of it.
