We're considering a move to the Asheville (Hendersonville) NC area. I'm interested in the "pros" and "cons". We've hear a lot of the Chamber of Commerce type virtures of the area, but thought there are others as well. We're especially interested in a candid view of the area for retired white collar professionals. Bring it On, please.

If "white collar professionals" are what youre looking for then this might be the place for you. That is if you enjoy listening to the loud mufflers of huge pick-up trucks with tires that are entirely too large for them. Or if you enjoy the fact that most places have more brochures and posters in Spanish than in English

Beautiful place but - 10/29/2013

We moved here to escape the cold of 99764. It has the most beautiful spring and fall, but if you have arthritis problems this is not the place for you. People here are friendly, I love the street dances and quaint downtown, that has just been renewed.

despreat people - 2/4/2013

talked with neighbors abt activates I shud be aware of , but got comments from land renters and neighbors that it was a safe an nice place to live . About 2 weeks of settling there I wud get random knocks at my door anywhere frm 12am till 4am , I wud go see what was going on , and look out the window ,there wud be a female at my door so I opened to see if she needed help n. well in fact they did , if u call door to door prostituting !!! How disgusted I was , and if the look of an heavily drugged up female sweeting bulits in cool weather wasn't enough , I kindly told her that kind of business is not acceptable here and my son was sleeping and to not bother us again, well she apologized , and then asked again for service for change . I offered to call ambulance cause of her tweaked out persona . anyways she left and ever so often in wud be a retina but different girls , I was even assaulted on my porch if front of my son , called police and then gentlemen that assaulted me stuck around , police came , even my son told them what happened & they clam they weren't there to see it and went on there way .this place is dangerous cause its small and lots of poor people that will do what they have to to get money . my advice if u do want to live here or close live far enough frm city .

As close to perfection as possible - 7/12/2012

We have lived in more than 15 communities in over 40 years of marriage due to husband's job transfers. We were lucky enough to get to stay in Hendersonville for 6 years and found it to be the most friendly place we have ever lived. With all the National Forest around if you can't find anything to due it is only your lack of imagination. Asheville is just a short hop and has a multitude of shopping, entertainment, and art venues to take advantage of. Our neighborhood consisted of thirty homes with every ethnicity represented. People would walk around every evening and speak to their neighbors. We knew the names of each resident, their children, and their pets. I have lived in other communities where I never got to know the names of my neighbors. Our church was extremely family oriented and we miss it terribly. Given the opportunity we would move back in a heartbeat. Reminds me of my childhood when it was safe enough for kids to actually play outside!

It sucks here - 11/30/2011

I'm a teenage girl in Hendersonville, NC and I must say no matter the reviews that say it's a nice place to raise kids 90% of us hate it here. There is absolutely nothing to do and the only good thing we can find are the leaves when they turn or when it actually snows. Then again, no matter the great and beautiful leaves we always get those tourists....hate toursists.

The Fall is to Die for - 11/11/2010

Our Family recently visited Hendersonville during the Fall season, what a beautiful place Hendersonville has become. The town is very cute and very busy considering the state of the economy, the people are very friendly and the scenery is incredible. Put this place on your bucket list.

Small Town, USA - 3/28/2010

My husband is from Dallas and I am from Chicago. We were living in Orlando when we got married and had kids. After several years there we made a move to the Mountains. In our opinion, this little town is the best kept secret in the Mountains. We have two little boys and this is the environment that we want to raise our kids in. People are friendly and still talk about God and Jesus in public. This place reminds me of Mayberry, RFD. We love it here.

Livining In Hendersonville - 2/25/2009

I have lived in Hendersonville for about 9 years. While Hendersonville is a very safe place to live it definitely has its downs. There is absolutely nothing to do. Children are definitely not the community's priority, as the school system is pretty much the worst I have ever seen. And boredom has driven 80% of the youth to drugs and alcohol. There is not a lot of cultural diversity. The population consists primarily of illegal Hispanics or cranky hick old people and their offspring. People are friendly but only to their own kind. I am mixed and if I say "Good Morning" to an old white man, I am not likely to get a response or even a friendly grin. There are absolutely no opportunities here for children, which is why I am desperately seeking a new place to move my child. Also, with the increase in police patrol, I can only assume that either our drug or illegal problem is becoming an even larger issue.

Friendly Town - 9/2/2008

Hendersonville is the friendliest town I have ever lived in. I wave good morning to at least three people as I drive down the mountain road I live on.

Think again... - 1/15/2008

We moved to Hendersonville, NC about 3 years ago after living in a couple of large cities. We used to come here as kids and wanted to get away from the crowds and traffic. Apparently so did a lot of other residents. People are moving here in droves. The town is full of elderly people who shouldn't be driving any longer. People are selling their farms to developers who are creating huge neighborhoods (700+ homes)of expensive homes on very small lots in what used to be the idyllic countryside, driving the cost of land and homes well beyond what the native working people of the area can afford as well as ruining the views. The traffic is horrible (bumper to bumper and stop & go on the interstates) on holiday weekends and during tourist season (May - Nov.), there is usually at least an hour's wait time at any restaurant between here and Asheville. If you're planning on getting a job here, think minimum wage--the salaries are very low compared to other areas. Think again about moving here--pretty soon it will be just like where you came from!

Run the other direction - 4/12/2007

20 years ago this was a good place to be. Today it is a Sanctuary for illegals. But if you put bars on your windows, pack a gun if you must go out it may still be ok (80% of the murders last year were commited by illegals)!
