Small town community - 7/31/2008
Waynesville is a small town trying to keep up with the big dogs across the mountains. It puts on shows and have festivals downtown but it is not good enough. I have lived here two years going on three and I have to drive to work a half hour away in Asheville to find a good paying job and then have to work a second job just to make ends meet. It has not nightlife and the recreation is not near enough to get to easily, you must drive at least a half hour in any direction to find anything like trails or camping or rafting which is what they advertise they have. Nearby Maggie Valley is a tourist trap and outragiously expensive to visit. I am glad I going away and finding better housing and jobs.[read more...]
A Delightful Place to Retire - 8/24/2007
For those of us who weren't reared there, Waynesville, NC lends itself best to being a small-town retirement community. The "Gateway to the Smokies" is a blissfully peaceful and picturesque town. Main Street is a charming, electic collection of galleries and shoppes. Health care is good: Haywood Regional Medical Center is all single occupancy rooms and Memorial Mission healthcare systems is less than thirty miles away. Best fit: you enjoy walking, reading, coffee shops, a good gym, and quiet days. For significant nightlife and culture, try nearby Asheville.[read more...]
