Hendersonville, NC

Just 30 minutes south of Asheville, and 20 minutes from the Regional Airport, Hendersonville is a mid-sized city, located on a relatively flat plateau in the heart of the mountains.  Hendersonville has a smaller town feel than Asheville, being that it is about a quarter of the size. Previously known as being a retiree’s haven, it has grown in popularity for families and singles as well because of its mild and pleasingly temperate climate, beautiful scenery, friendly people, numerous attractions, rich culture/history, and ample recreation opportunities. 

Main Street is hopping with great restaurants like Brooks Tavern, which has high quality american pub food. For something more fancy, try Shine, which has Hendo’s only rooftop bar; the atmosphere can’t be beat!  And McFarlan’s Bakery on Main St has been serving up sweetness for 80 years.  Go to Tribal Trends to pickup your crystals or attend a meditation class. The Mineral Museum and Aquarium are hidden jewels which will delight young and old! Music On Main happens every Friday night from July through August and is a family friendly event with dancing and an antique car show.

For incredible thrift store finds, hop over to SafeLight Resale, where you can pick up a pair of designer ladies boots for $6, all the while supporting an organization that provides solutions to women and children who are experiencing violence.

Just south of “Beer City, USA”, Hendersonville is home to The Cheers! Trail which showcases 16 craft beverage producers, including the world renowned Sierra Nevada, where you can get a tour of their process, while taking in their incredibly breathtaking facility.

Henderson County’s main export is apples – the soil and environment is perfect for it. Honor the apple by visiting an orchard, such as Grandad’s Apples, with the kids, or attend the Apple Festival in downtown over Labor Day weekend. Hendersonville’s got a little bit of everything!
