Arts Community

 

 

Asheville is a popular destination, known for its culinary scene, beer, music and live entertainment options. The term Food-Topian was coined a while back to describe its blend of farm-to-fork, Southern roots and eclectic influx. With 18 craft breweries, it's known as a craft brew epicenter. Since the Blue Ridge Parkway runs through the area it's also a great place to access amazing mountain views. Talented residents drive the music and art community, including students, working professionals and seniors.
