I am thinking of moving to Asheville,NC.
and need opinions.
Is Asheville anything like Austin?
But on a smaller scale?
Austin is expensive and hot and thought
Asheville owuld be cheap and cooler.
Try to compare scenery, cost,
activities ect. How about another
suggestion for an Austin like city?
Thanks, Emily.

probably cooler than austin but not cheap. the cost of living is actually probably higher than austin and you also have nc state income taxes, which texas doesn't have

I compare Asshville to Gallup, NM. It is just a small town with a lots of dum ignert sellfish people. Pritty mountains though.

We don't have state income tax in Texas. That's a big consideration.

Asheville is nothing
like Austin!
Austin has gorgeous scenery,
Is world renowned.
Asheville has liberal yuppies,
hippies and a culinary scene
food trucks but that does not
make it Austin!
Check out Chatanooga Tn''
Blown away by its beauty
and remind sme a little of

Austin also has an incredible music scene
and I mean incredible.

Emily22/Sarah Leonard...I do believe you are the same person. If you want individuals to believe you are someone different please improve on spelling and grammar.
