    My GF and I are looking to move to Asheville in the very near future. I was just wondering if there were any posters who have lived there or have anything to say about it.

    Love it? Hate it? Live there? Funny stories? Connections that would be willing to hire me?

    I'm trying to learn some more about the city.

    Has a good music scene. I've always had fun when I've been there. There are a lot of hippies, though.

    Huge understatement. You might as well say hippies make up 85% of the Asheville proper population. If you're moving there just to move and like that sort of thing, go for it. If you're moving there for job/school related stuff or something of that nature, there are plenty of smaller rural towns within a few minutes drive that I would definitely choose over living within the city.

    Good music and beer scene, if either of those things appeal to you. Lots of hippies and alternative lifestyles, an eclectic gathering. Cost of living is higher than surrounding areas, so I'd maybe go that route.

    NY just called his loan officer to stop his home loan process. Immediately afterwards, he called his realty agent telling him to get to work finding him a home in the geographic center of Asheville.

    I like Asheville, large enough for decent nightlife and eateries, but not so large to have the problems and pitfalls of large metro cities. I would rather go there than Knoxville.

    Not a true fan, imo

    Negative. Keeping the new house so my wife has somewhere to stay when I head to Asheville.

    I do have a very good friend who lives in Asheville. I'm a fan of the place. Decent nightlife but also not a lot of slums.
