Asheville is an up and coming city with lots of wonderful things to offer. The weather is beautiful, the views of the mountains are gorgeous, the city is full of restaurants and entertainment options, and we could go on and on. While Asheville is becoming a popular place to visit, studies are showing that the population in the city of Asheville is actually declining. The Citizens Times, a USA Today Network, article states that “Asheville city’s population growth rate dropped to 0.7% annually in 2017 and 2018, after averaging 1.5% annually over the previous six years. Over the same period, most neighboring mountain cities and towns have been experiencing fairly robust population growth rates.”
As with most cities that are growing in popularity, the cost of living in Asheville has risen and is higher than in some of the nearby towns and cities. Fortunately, these booming neighboring towns and cities offer comparable living near Asheville that is more affordable.
