Asheville is widely regarded as an attractive place to live – for both permanent residents and those who wish to have a home away from home. With its eclectic downtown boasting an energy unlike any other city in the South, it’s no surprise that Asheville’s been dubbed “The Happiest City in America.”
A bohemian community known the world over for its rich history and architectural legacy, Asheville is also home to some of the most interesting locally-owned shops, art galleries and entertainment venues in the region. The distinctive culinary scene is equally as popular with incredible restaurants and microbreweries peppered throughout the city. The popularity of the microbreweries has actually led to Asheville’s distinguished ranking as “Beer City USA.”
The outdoor activities and recreational day trips are a draw to tourists and residents alike. From scenic hikes along the Blue Ridge Parkway to mountain biking and white water rafting, adventures in the area are enhanced by the temperate four season climate which allows residents to enjoy activities throughout the year. Biltmore Estate, known as America’s Largest Home and host to over a million visitors a year, is a national treasure located in our backyard.
Continuing education opportunities and a nationally acclaimed medical system make Asheville an incredibly attractive place for senior citizens, which is why it’s been distinguished as the “Best Place in America to Retire.”
