Here in Hendersonville, life isn't too bad at all. I mean we have plenty of restaurants along Main Street like the Wine Sage and Gourmet which is spectacular. I have found that living in Hendersonville can be an issue for some, due to the resent rise in crime within the city.
With that being said, a strong community and neighborhood watch systems can ease some of the unrest due to nervousness or whatever you want to call it. I love it here, I mean you have some of the best selections of eateries, along with places like Team ECCO Aquarium which can be found in the downtown area.
Education is commendable, with graduation rates rivaling the state average. Cost of living is very fair, and although home prices are a bit higher than other places I've lived here in NC, work is steady here and I love summers down here in the south. Keep in mind that this is North Carolina, so not only is it plenty to do here in Hendersonville, there is much to do statewide!
