Asheville, North Carolina

Asheville is an ideal place to live, well known and visited for its beautiful outdoors (it is surrounded by three mountainous National Forests), its abundance of activity options that come with the landscape and ecosystem, and its rich arts, crafts, and music culture. Asheville’s many restaurants and microbreweries make it a highly sought out tourist destination. Local, sustainable agriculture is also a hallmark of this town, which supports seventeen farmers’ markets for less than 100,000 residents. If you like to eat local, organic food, participate in public music events (like community chorus), and be surrounded by art, it’s a great place to be.
