Asheville: More Best of Lists

In recent years, Asheville and its surroundings have been named to enough "best of" lists that we stopped counting around 50 or so.

It might be said that we live in an age of lists, but still, we find it notable. In the past week, we became aware of two more best of designations.

First, from The Asheville Business Blog, we read that our fair city was again ranked as the #2 small town in the nation as an arts destination. We have always emphasized our region as hip, artsy and eclectic, and the recognition on some official level is nice.

The concentration of artists as a percentage of the total workforce is an area we wrote about last year. From downtown to across town, to the outlying counties, visitors and residents alike are face to face with artistic expression, studios and galleries of all kinds.

Second, from our friends at Carolina Mornings, we were alerted to a citation as the # 6 city in which to live for business and careers by Forbes magazine. You can check out the latest big picture economic indexes from the Economic Development Coalition whose March report should be out soon.
