I am a new resident in the area, having moved from Charlotte to the Black Mountain/Asheville-area two weeks ago. There is so much more this area offers, such as great music venues (e.g., Thomas Wolfe Auditorium), many walking and hiking paths, and of course, great food. The job market, believe it or not, seems to be better here, from my perspective. I went over a year in Charlotte without work, then moved here and found a job within the two-week span of [arriving]. There are jobs to be found — if you actually go out and look.
Just wanted to share with you the happiness I found since moving here, and proud to call WNC area "home!"
