Why Asheville?
The beauty and splendor of the Western North Carolina Mountains continue to draw people from far and wide. The fine dining and culture of Asheville blend neatly with the rugged outdoor adventures to be found everywhere you look. Spend a Saturday night strolling through downtown Asheville and you will be amazed at the diversity. Listen to Bluegrass music performed by Grammy Award-winning artists on the town square. Stroll uptown and see artisans at work and listen to Reggae music. Further along in Pritchard Park, you can watch silent movies while playing chess with a new friend. Something to see, plenty to do, and wonderful music to charm your soul on every corner! What about the outdoors? Hiking, skiing, fly-fishing, white water rafting, golf ……… and so much more! Where else can you spend the weekend outdoors and never hit the same trail twice?
Welcome to my home! Welcome to Asheville and Western NC!
