Real Estate in western North Carolina is grabbing some national attention. Recently, Asheville has been ranked one of the “Best Places to Retire”, according to SouthernLiving.com. For those of us that live in driving distance to Asheville, we enjoy the big city conveniences it has to offer. From entertainment, art, theaters and award-winning restaurants, it certainly has a lot offer. We all know and love the Asheville area, but what about the small towns that we live in such as Maggie Valley, Waynesville, Lake Junaluska, Bryson City, Canton, or Clyde all located in western North Carolina?

All of these small town communities offer a variety of charm:
Maggie Valley borders the Great Smoky Mountains National Park where you can easily hop on the Blue Ridge Parkway for a gorgeous drive. Go skiing in the winter at Cataloochee Ski Lodge or just stroll through town enjoying the many shops and restaurants.
Waynesville has big city entertainment at the Hart Theater as well as a mountain, trendy Main Street full of quaint shops, breweries and restaurants.
Bryson City has the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad with train rides through the Great Smoky Mountain National Park as well as the Smoky Mountains Trains Museum.
Enjoy a stroll (or work up a sweat) with a walk (or jog) around Lake Junaluska! This is also a popular spot for bird watchers and photographers. In the summer months, you can rent a paddle board or go swimming in their pool. They also offer pickleball, tennis & basketball courts!
Canton is the second largest town in Haywood County. This is a perfect place to enjoy some tubing through town on the Pigeon River. Stop at Bearwaters Brewing for a bite to eat after your day on the river.
Take a trip through time at the Shook-Smathers House located in Clyde. If you are looking for outdoor activities, enjoy a hike or go fishing at a trout farm.
