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.

I like Ashville, very safe and child safe. Neighbors are nice and a pleasent and quiet town. I wouldn't change a thing! :)
The area of Ashville is a nice small hometown, where you see everyone that you know and know everyone that you see! It is a nice growing scenery with a constant hometown feel.
