Asheville is still not on the itinerary for many British visitors, but the clamour is growing for this bohemian North Carolina city, just voted one of the friendliest cities in the United States.
The up-and-coming southern city that is charming visitors from all over the world is featured in a recent article by Clare Kitchen for The Telegraph.
(Asheville) sits at the southern end of the Blue Ridge Parkway, the 469-mile-scenic highway linking the Shenandoah National Park to the Great Smoky Mountains. Set against the impressive backdrop of the Appalachian Mountains, this is a funky little city in North Carolina.
Its charms are now well documented in the United States, even if they are not really on the radar in Britain. It routinely appears in “best of” lists, and it was named among the ‘Ten Most Beautiful Places’ in America by ABCs’ Good Morning America, among the ‘25 best places to retire’ by CNN – and earlier this week as one of the 10 friendliest cities in the United States. It lives up to its billing.
