Asheville apartments give you the chance to truly spend a good amount of time in a remarkable city and region. Many local bumper stickers and t-shirts joke about how God once kissed the surface of the Earth and then called it Asheville. Many publications also like to nickname this diverse place as the “Paris of the South,” although many also compare it to San Francisco.
Located in the western third of the state of North Carolina, this city sits in a geographic bowl where a major river passes through, and the city is surrounded by mountain ranges, some of which have the tallest peaks east of the Mississippi.
Tourists flock here for many conference centers and summer camps, as well as conventions held here, plus golfing. The high elevations and mountain breezes mean that the summer air is low in humidity with very mild weather, even in July and August. Things are even more chill for those that hike up trails to the tops of ridges or cruise up and down the Blue Ridge Parkway that passes through the city.
October is another peak tourist time as thousands flock here to see the leaves changing. With elevations sometimes changing a whole mile up and down and over a hundred different species of trees, the fall season here is one of the longest and most colorful in the world.
The city itself is home to a remarkable spectrum of subcultures, as many are drawn by the eclectic vibe. That does come with some consequence though, as the housing market is tight. The terrain simply doesn’t leave a lot of room to build, and so Asheville apartments go up a lot to make the most of the available space. Renting one is a chance to enjoy this city without having to deal with things like yardwork or maintenance.
