Asheville North Carolina

This is a follow-up question to one that I asked before about North Carolina. I would love to hear from people who are currently living in Asheville and what this city has to offer. I heard that this city is a college town with many things to do and I am so interested in moving down there. I want to know about the schools, best areas to live, and about the natural and organic stores. I would also like to know if there are any natural food co-ops as well. Please be positive and honest, thanks.

  • I almost moved there to go to college. I visited when I was looking at schools and I loved it there. It's a very beautiful area with lots to offer. I ended up staying in Wisconsin and getting married, but I would have loved to move there. I think it's one of the prettiest parts of the country. Good luck! :)

  • It is a beautiful place. The largest private home in America is there! The Biltmore Estate.

  • No, it's not hard to breathe. If you go way up in the mountains the air is thinner and it's harder to breathe, but Asheville is actually situated at the foothills, so no there is no problem breathing. I live in Raleigh which is a couple hours away from Asheville.

  • I'm trying to get away from the cold winters of Michigan, plus there's not much to do in my city.

  • I heard that it was hard to breathe down there, is that true?

  • The Smokey Mountains are not high enough to cause altiude problems. The Biltmore Estate was lovely. there is a much slower pace of life there than Michigan. I Find our state to be awesome, with many different things to do. I don't think I would like it there unles I was on the coast.
