Though there are numerous reasons, perhaps uncountable, that would make this move all the worthwhile, we have compiled a list entitled 7 reasons you will love moving to Hendersonville NC

1. Location, location, location. Though Hendersonville is a quieter city when compared with other large American cities, its proximity to places like Asheville, the Greenville and Spartanburg areas, and its ease of access to larger cities like Atlanta, Charlotte, and Knoxville make it ideal for many. Without the business and high-traffic of larger cities, residents of Hendersonville can enjoy the best of both worlds. With the city of Asheville being only 25 miles north of the town and the Greenville and Spartanburg area being as little as 30 minutes south, guests can enjoy quick access to either spot.

This small town feel is favored by many, being considered a peaceful alternative to the crowded, high-strung cities that exist on the opposite end of the spectrum. Having said that, a small town feel can be a complaint for some, worried about the lack of ambience that fills the city. Well, worry not. This is not the case for Hendersonville. Along with having one of the best main streets in the state of North Carolina, Hendersonville was awarded for the “Best Outdoor Space Improvement” in the state and recognized for its downtown renovations that have since restored life to the city’s downtown area. Among the shops lining main street, newcomers will find eclectic shopping, outdoor cafes, joyful walking areas, and tasty dining options.
