About Asheville NC

The Asheville, NC area continues to be a destination for both relocation and travel. Our airport is rated as one of the best connected regional airports in the country. Once in the area, there are many things to do in and around downtown Asheville, including taking advantage of our restaurants, breweries and great outdoor activities.


One of the main draws for travelers and residents alike is downtown Asheville – vibrant and friendly, the area has critically acclaimed restaurants, galleries and great boutique shopping. Stepping out of the downtown core, each smaller enclave around Asheville has a unique feel—West Asheville, North Asheville and Biltmore Village, among others, are areas that keep the local Asheville area busy.

The Asheville, NC metro area, covering four Western North Carolina counties, has a population of approximately 450,000 residents. In 2016, Buncombe County attracted 10.9 million visitors, generating $2.9 billion in economic impact. Despite this growth, the cost of living is less than the national average and has retained a small-city charm. Small businesses have a strong presence in Asheville, adding to the great “community feel” of Asheville.
