Hendersonville is an Amazing Mountain Town

Hendersonville is a small mountain town just south of Asheville North Carolina nestled among the mountains of the western part of the state.

Is about 20 minutes south of Asheville and has its own unique historic all American charm.  It has a beautiful downtown that has been restored and there is obviously a huge sense of pride and how it is well-maintained.

Anywhere you go around town, you will get breathtaking views of the mountains to the east and the west.

What’s interesting is Hendersonville has a population of round 16,000 people but has all the modern amenities that you might need for your growing family.

It posts many amazing sports programs for the kids and a number of parks with many natural wonders to explore.  Whether you want to walk on hiking trails or see waterfalls, you can get all of it in Hendersonville.

And, what is great, being a small mountain town, it has a higher elevation which protects it from the intense southern heat.  Summer temperatures could be 10° cooler and humidity could be substantially lower making it a beautiful place to visit year round.

It even experiences snow due to its elevation and proximity to the mountains.

It is closer to downtown Asheville then people might think and having access to all the cool things to check out in the northern area of Asheville.

My friend Brandon, runs his North Carolina roofing company out of Charlotte but has a local office in downtown Asheville. He has been growing his company in this area, Southern Star Roofing, for quite some time.

The area is beautiful with a lot of rich history and nature to explore.  Check out this video below or considering a visit to Hendersonville!
