Asheville Photo of the Day

Recommended Posts


Wish Asheville had an arena so the city could host tournaments.  IMO this is the one of the most under rated cities on the eastern seaboard.  Wilmington is the other.

Wonderful updated pictures of Asheville, especially in the downtown!! As usual KJHburg, your photos/statements of development throughout the state is appreciated.......Greenville NC must be on your next trip.  I am reading about a lot of development on citydata.com in that neck of the woods!!

I will be there in June to visit my alma mater and friends in town. Last summer when I went I was blown away at all the apartments and multifamily built. ECU has almost doubled in size since I graduated from there and yet no new university owned housing. It was unbelievable. 

Asheville is one of my favorite cities in the state and it is booming in every direction and especially downtown and intown.

This is really a City you don't want to boom too much or it'll kill off everything that is nice about it. Blight by deep pocketed thoughtless development is a thing. If too many more Suburbans and Escalades keep showing up, I'm making Knoxville my go-to Appalachian CIty (I realize Knox is downhill a bit...). Granted so far so good (mostly) in Asheville, but Industrial scale tourism has ruined a lot of good things (Arches, Acadia, Yellowstone...)

This billboard cracks me up.  First Nashville had their HOT chicken now Asheville.  and the slogan! And I hear it is  really good.

Honestly, I think Asheville has the #2 skyline in the state.  I see a skyline with an unrivaled mix of architectural styles and a decent amount of building.  Very photogenic.

Love walking around downtown Asheville which I did this morning. Lots of photos.  The mix of newer and historic buildings is just great and great pedestrian scale. and to think this downtown was very dead in the 1970s now one of the most vibrant in the southeast.

It looks down to Earth and inviting.  How are the home prices?

Asheville is a little more expensive than Charlotte for example due to lack of buildable land but cheaper than a Charleston SC for example.
