Boone climate - 6/27/2014
Boone and the High Country's climate is unique to North Carolina and the Southeast. It's cool summers and snowy winters are much more comparable to places much farther north. Boone enjoys four distinct seasons, all of which offer something for visitors and locals, alike. Due to it's elevation and terrain, the weather conditions in Boone can change very quickly. Read More

Dual Income Needed (or near six figures total) - 8/27/2011
The area is beautiful - living in the Blue Ridge Mountains is gorgeous. But .. the views don't pay the bills. Housing is overpriced. You are better off living off-the-mountain and commuting. Jobs are scarce. ASU is it and good luck trying to find a staff/admin job. Most of the staff/admins are related or grew up together. Small town, low wages, summer time invasion of Floridians, poor shopping choices (Wal*mart or K*Mart), over priced groceries. Closest "big shopping" is Hickory or Winston-Salem. Charlotte is over 2 hours away. So factor in the fuel costs and it gets real expensive real fast. Great place for going to college -- four years and you are Read More

How "Green" is Boone? - 6/11/2010
I found ASU by digging around trying to find schools that teach green energy, solar, wind, etc. So my question is, how "green" is life in Boone? I live in Townsend, TN and if I even try to talk environment people blank out. NC is part of the movement putting windpower at schools so I'm impressed. However, I want to make sure wherever I move has enough diversity, most importantly people interested and involved in the alternative energy movement. Comments and info greatly Read More

Life in the Blue Ridge Mountains - 1/7/2010
Quality of life in Boone, NC is great so long as you enjoy scenic views, outdoor activities, unpredictable weather and minor inconveniences to what most might call 'creature comforts'. The views are great and the options for outdoor activities are endless, however we are 2-3 hours from a major airport and don't have your typical chain retailers (Target, Starbucks, GAP, etc...). Its quaint and very peaceful most Read More

Extreme Housing Shortage in Boone NC - 4/23/2009
Yes it is beautiful and yes the value of education at ASU is great but they don't tell you that the University kicks you out of the dorm after your freshman year because they accept more students than they can house. The local people take advantage of these students and their familys by charging extream rent to these young people. It is shamefull and the University is not doing anything or even trying to help. Yes they have a web site but all that is is advertisement for the renters who are preying on the students. Its all about greed. What a shame such a beautiful peaceful town with such a rich history and culture has become fodder for vulchers.

I hope you do a story on this. I have lived in NC all my life and know many who have attended this fine university but after the rest of the US took notice of this beautiful place when APP State won the football championship It became caught up in the greed of todays society. I am a single mother who has one child at UNC-CH and Read More
