Noel, at age 62 I can imagine the mixture of anxiety and excitement
you must be feeling. Good for you!!!Asheville, NC is the kind of
community you described. You should definitely check it out.
Specifically, The River District and West Asheville. Then, there are
numerous surrounding communities that begin to echo this, on a much
smaller scsonville, Sylva, Saluda. Good luck! Pegi Pike
