Asheville: Of Walking, Weather, and Weekends

It is mid-April, and the weather forecast for our fair city is gorgeous this weekend. Why not come by and take a walk?

Walkability
We have written from time to time about how an area's walkability, can be a desired trait in real estate markets. The last couple of years have even given rise to online methods for far away buyers to measure a region's walk score.

Asheville is especially attractive as a walkable area, here is the current downtown walkscore, 98 out of 100. We even escaped the so called "Starbucks' Effect".

The idea there is that when neighborhoods lost a Starbuck's, that the walkscore suffered, and property values declined. We have even seen The Wall Street Journal pick up on the walkability phenomenon in its real estate commentary.

And Where To Walk in Asheville This Weekend?
As always, Mountain Express gives us its Weekend on s Shoestring.

The Asheville Citizen Times has what they call the Take 5 section which covers everything from music, to film, dining and more to do.

But, While Driving
The NC Highway Patrol will be out, with special focus on work zones.
