What Bert Has To Say About Asheville Metro Area

Asheville lies at the foot of the Great Smoky Mountains, the highest portion of the Appalachian Range. The town is an eastern equivalent of the many mountain resort towns that dot the American west, particularly in the Rocky Mountains. Originally settled in the 1850’s as a health resort, Asheville has an interesting history- in the late 1800’s and especially the 1920’s the area was a popular retreat for wealthy vacationers, including eight presidents and many well-known industrialists. Today the area has an active economy and serves both as a getaway from summer heat in the nearby lowlands and as a travel destination for many in east coast cities.
