- Asheville

What can you say about Asheville that torrents of others haven't said already? That it makes more 'best of' lists than apple pie. That for blending outdoor living and cultural sophistication you'd have to go west of the Mississippi—and even then. That the local motto is 'Don't postpone joy.' And to evoke sports cliché's; 'pound for pound' it's 'fighting above its weight.' Ironically, all of these statements are true. Samuel Johnson once said, 'Who tires of London tires of life' On a smaller scale, Asheville has that same complexity, capacity to stimulate, and delight at what's around the corner.
