Asheville, North Carolina
Located in Buncombe County, Asheville is right in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The city is famously known as a regional art hub.

That’s right: beer enthusiasts will have a hard time leaving this place, which has no less than 26 craft brewers and another 60 nearby.
Greenville, South Carolina
Greenville is known as the upstate’s cultural and entertainment hub, and rightfully so! After all, there’s an award-winning downtown there, a very big and relevant performing arts center, a 17,000-seat arena, and a 340,000-square-foot convention and exhibition complex.
And that’s not all! Besides all of that, it also has plenty of nationally recognized museum collections, 40 parks, playgrounds, and relaxing facilities.
