America is full of breathtakingly beautiful natural scenery, from expansive forests stretching hundreds of miles along mountain ranges to wonders of nature that formed over millions of years into the awe-inspiring sights we know today to swaths of coastal shores offering views of the ocean as far as the eye can see.

Travel + Leisure compiled a list of the 50 "most beautiful places in the U.S.," detailing the most gorgeous spot in each state that showcases the true beauty of America. According to the list, the most beautiful place in North Carolina is the Outer Banks. This incredible area of the state's coast offers lovely views, quiet serenity and "quaint" vibes.

Here's what the site had to say:

"This remote stretch of North Carolina coastline has drawn pirates, colonists, and early aviators. Now, it's the realm of beach lovers looking for peace, quiet, white sand, and salty air. Add in the barrier islands' wild dunes (including the East Coast's largest), incredible Outer Banks campgrounds, and multiuse paths — it's actually possible to bike the entire 100-plus-mile length of the region — and you've got a region set for quaint coastal exploration."
