Western North Carolina consists of many great towns and cities, with Asheville being the largest city in the area, sometimes even referred to as the Capital of WNC. There are so many things to do in each of these local communities. From hiking, to waterfalls, arts and crafts, breweries, specialty food, and a quality of life that many like so much that they decide to more here. Downtown Asheville is not for everyone. Vacationing and living in the mountains of Weaverville or Hendersonville allows you to be only 20 minutes away from just about everything.
