This usually means residents are self-sufficient and do not require hands-on care. Think of Asheville retirement communities as age-restricted (typically 55+) complexes, which provide organized activities, meal services, and transportation.

Arts, Culture, Entertainment, and Recreation

What was once the best-kept secret of the Blue Ridge Mountains is now one of the fastest-growing cities in the region. Spend just a single weekend in Asheville and you’ll see why both retirees and young adults have been flocking to this quirky yet charming Western North Carolina town. With its blend of local folk music, big-city culture, truly breathtaking scenery, and endless outdoor opportunities, Asheville glows with an atmosphere unlike anywhere else in the country.

Downtown Asheville continues its ongoing revitalization with a variety of cafes, fine dining, antique shops, boutique hotels, and high-rise apartments. Some downtown hot spots include Mayfel’s for Southern-style brunch, the Flatiron Building for happy hours on the balcony during sunset, the Battery Park Book Exchange for cozy reading spots and a champagne bar, and Pritchard Park for communal drum circles on summer Fridays and street musicians throughout the year. A couple miles north of downtown at the Omni Grove Park Inn, a historic resort built in 1913 on the slope of Sunset Mountain, guests enter through a grand lobby — known for its two enormous fireplaces — before stepping out onto the back patio area for an expansive, unforgettable view of downtown and the mountains to the southwest. But Asheville’s most opulent residence is undoubtedly the Biltmore Estate, the enormous 250-room mansion built by the prominent Vanderbilt family in the late 1800s. Like an American castle of Gilded Age royalty, the Biltmore draws in more than a million visitors every year with guided house tours, gardens, bike trails, and a winery.

Asheville’s defining characteristic, however, is its access to nature. The city is surrounded by enchanting destinations like Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the hiking trails and waterfalls of Pisgah National Forest, rafting and tubing down the French Broad River, and countless other day-trip excursions. Weaving throughout the landscape is the Blue Ridge Parkway, a scenic byway that borders Asheville’s eastern edge and attracts road trippers from throughout the country. The Parkway’s low speed limit and winding curves allow travelers to marvel at the distant layers of hazy Appalachian peaks, which seem to drift along the horizon like rolling waves that intensify with each bend in the road — perhaps this dazzling, hypnotic sight is what earned Asheville the nickname “Land of the Sky.”

Transportation

The city provides public bus services throughout the Asheville metro area via Asheville Rides Transit (ART), which also offers paratransit and discounted rates for seniors. Riders can bring bicycles with them on buses, which are equipped with bike racks.
