I was there last June on a riding vacation, and it's great. It may be the first time I've seriously considered moving somewhere that wasn't a transfer due to work. It's a somewhat 'hippie' town, like a larger Ithaca or smaller San Francisco. Lots of little restaurants, shops, and breweries downtown, with the more national chain stuff on the outskirts.

Very true, but also a great craft beer scene. Lots of great micros and brewpubs in and around Asheville, plus you have all the touristy stuff with the Biltmore and Blue Ridge Parkway. Most people in Raleigh prefer to hit the beach for their vacations, but I'll take the NC mountains any day over those overcrowded beaches.

The best three-day vacation I ever took was in Asheville.

Yep. I was passing thru town on a Monday night and ended up staying for 2 nights it was so nice.

That's silly talk. Denver is in Colorado, and anyone who watched Hoosiers knows that Hickory is in Indiana.

Did you move there in time to make the Hickory Hops festival last year? I haven't been yet myself, but I hear that its a great beer festival.

Just what is it with you and bisexual dudes wearing lingerie?

I believe that's in Haywood County with Deputy Chief Larry Bryson.

I vacation in Carolina Beach or Emerald isle every year since 1990. I've never seen it crowded. It ain't the Jersey shore.

Depends on time of year. If you go June through September its crowded, and I've rented beach houses at Emerald Isle, the outer banks and Oak island. You ever tried going to a grocery store at the beach when checking in on Saturday?
