I like the small town feel because everything is conveniently close together but there is not much diversity in the town nor is there much acceptance for other cultures or identities besides straight white people. Overall though, there is not much crime or violence and it is a relatively calm, quiet place to live.

Ashville is a tiny little town. It is not diverse at all and has a high population of impoverished families and drug users. In fact, the population of drug users is so high that in most restaurants and stores you have to ask for the key to use the bathroom.
Amazing small town feel. Nice area with restaurants and stores, nice people. Has a small problem with poverty.
