You can imagine that with all the cities we visit there are bound to be a few we really enjoy, some that we could even imagine living in. There exists a list between Josh and I that we would consider moving to if a job came along. Some of those places are La Crosse, WI; Dubuque, IA, NC; Jackson Hole, WY; Portland, OR and now Asheville, NC.
While we only had four short days in Asheville, she showed us something. With wonderful restaurants, seven breweries and a thriving downtown if felt alive and comfortable. We spent most evenings sitting on the patio of a restaurant watching residents hustle and bustle. The town itself is seated in a bowl keeping the summers cool and winters mild.
There was music everywhere and a community thick with people enjoying it. One park in the downtown just for Drum Circles, anyone can come play a happy noise. I’m not sure that there is an end to things going on. After a few days of feeling like the city went on forever we realized that it was still a small town, just felt big.
You’re just minutes from mountains and white water rivers. It has got to be one of the most dog friendly cities we’ve been too. Having a primped little purebred like we do is a out of fashion however.
The people are nice, most North Carolinians are. Who knows where we will end up when the road life comes to an end but I can tell you if Asheville came calling I’d listen.
