What Renters Like and Dislike About Asheville

They are very beautiful themselves.. i like bars and parks... for Usually parks ... it is very good and fantastic because it provides high way of humanity and kindness for all people

It's historic. I like that we can walk to restaurants and downtown. I like that my home is close to events.

It is a very beautiful neighborhood honestly. Then building of the houses are very unique. It?s a place that is good and roomy for us.

Great local restaurants like homegrown, liberty cafe, and the waterbird. My friends and I go to all those places often. A lot of times we walk from our houses to get there.

The only thing I like are two relatively inexpensive restaurants. I do not like the stores, they are very expensive. We need more chain stores.
