So what setting, geography, and lifestyle have to be present to make a place in the Carolinas a Best Place for you to live?!
Well, today I’m going to share with you some of my best places in North Carolina based purely on setting, geography, and lifestyle.
I’m a mountain man myself. I grew up near the ocean and I’m tired of the hot sun and flat scrubby coastal land of the northeast and southeast. So for me, the mountains of western North Carolina are a refreshing magnificent change.
But I still will tell you about some incredible coastal areas, for those of you who still want to be on the water, and don’t forget those pure, crystal clear, cold as ice mountain lakes.
So off to the Mountains…I love the areas of Asheville, Waynesville, Cashiers, and Chimney Rock. Asheville has only about 80,000 people, but it’s very hip with plenty of services, a major hospital and airport. Waynesville has about 30,000 people in the greater area. And if you love living at severe angles on the side of a mountain with incredible long mountain views, Waynesville’s for you. Visit Chimney Rock south of Asheville, hike the trails and enjoy the hawks, vistas, and views of Lake Lure. Check out the waterfalls at Graveyard Fields off the Blue Ridge Parkway and take a dip in some crisp, clear, mountain springs.
