There is a reason that this area is one of the fastest growing areas in the US for families and retirees alike! Whether your passion is doing things outdoors, experiencing the arts, or community involvement you have found the right place.
Explore the Outdoors
If the outdoors are your passion, hold on! Hendersonville and Brevard are minutes away from Pisgah National Forest, DuPont State Forest and the Blue Ridge Parkway. There is more hiking, mountain biking, road biking, rock climbing, fishing, hunting, camping, canoeing and kayaking than you could likely do in several lifetimes. And with so many local clubs specializing in each activity, it’s easy to find people with like-kind interests that are willing to help you get started, or welcome a seasoned veteran.
If historical sites and gardens are more of your thing, the Biltmore House and Gardens, Carl Sandburg Historic Site, and Chimney Rock are all world-renowned. Combine that with all of the more local and regionally known spots like PARI, Vance Birthplace, and Cradle of Forestry to name a few, and you can see why folks here often stay-cation.
Beer, Wine and Great Food
Of course, the craft beer, craft cider, and local wineries have made our region famous in recent years. There is a reason that Sierra Nevada in Mills River is called the Disneyland of Beer.
Tons of unique, locally owned restaurants and quaint downtowns made for shopping and strolling complete our local scene.
Fine Arts Abound
For years our area was known as a renowned retirement mecca due to our climate, accessibility to airports and interstates and the beauty of the area. With the retirees came a love and support of the fine arts that carries forward today. In fact, with venues like Flat Rock Playhouse, Brevard Music Center, and the Hendersonville and Asheville Symphonies, you will find live entertainment and performances that rival Broadway..in fact, many names familiar to Broadway are regularly seen performing on our local stages.
Area Real Estate
The real estate market in the southern mountains is extremely strong. Whether your choice is to live in the downtown area of one of our communities, in a golf course community, more traditional subdivision or on a mini-farm, opportunities are as diverse as our waterfalls.
