Asheville Life

asheville real estateLife in Asheville is never boring.

There is so much culture in our amazing little city. With a population just over 80,000, it is the perfect size. There’s barely any traffic in comparison to major metro areas, and there is majestic beauty surrounding.

With short drives outside Asheville, you can be in the midst of some of the greatest hiking trails, waterfalls, and mountain views in the country.

In the fall, the leaf color changes are absolutely stunning. There are very few areas with better fall foliage than what we experience here in Asheville NC.

The Asheville Real Estate is a good market with so many great choices for families, seniors, and even young singles. Many visitors end up calling a real estate agent to be shown around and get some tours because they fall in love with the city when they get here.

The Biltmore Estate and Grove Park Inn are fabulous, luxurious stops to check out and visit.

Be sure to hang out Friday night downtown in Pritchard Park for the drum circle – an amazing and spiritual experience.

Asheville Life is always excited and so we look forward to blogging more about it in future articles here.
