Bluegrass music!!!! Doc Watson is from the little community I grew up in (Deep Gap), just outside of Boone. But there is also a lot of other really fantastic and progressive bluegrass that comes out of NC

We live in the foothills and love it.

Charlotte and Asheville offer the city life that we grew up with and are about an hour away. Sports, theatre, dance, nightlife, restaurants, etc. Of course if you're a NASCAR fan, this is Mecca.

The University system is solid and a definite draw.

The mountains are also about an hour away when you need to get away from it all. If you fish, hike, camp, this is a paradise. Of course, don't forget about the Blue Ridge Parkway. Cool B&Bs up that way.

The beach isn't a tough haul either. 3-5 hours will put you firmly into sand & surf. Myrtle Beach for the boardwalk-treading type (yeah, I know it's SC). Real getaway old school beaches abound at the Outer Banks, and the inbetween stuff around Willmington.

We get 4 seasons, we don't get earthquakes nor live in tornado alley, we get enough snow to make it fun (skiing is OK), etc.

I moved here from GA, and can't understand why my parents didn't stay here in the first place.

We moved the family to Asheville 25 years ago. Have SO enjoyed raising children here. We love hiking, fishing, biking, walking our beautiful furry friend. Love the crazees downtown on weekends. Never boring.

I also like being able to go to the mountains to the beach in a day or so. But I hate Fayetteville...
