Sir, it is KNOXVILLE, not "Knocksville." You're going to get clowned for that one throughout the life of this thread.

And a better comparison with Asheville, in my opinion, would be Charleston, WV.

Oh my gosh I can not believe that I sat there and spelled it wrong TWO times I am so sorry I don't know how I let that happen!

But here is another awesome picture I found I have never seen this before!

Absolutely Asheville. I've been there and I loved it. The skyline is better, and the city itself is awesome. Asheville doesn't feel "Southern" at all. It seems like a Northeastern city that just happens to be located in the South. It's the only Southern city I'd be interested in living long-term (Atlanta is, hopefully, just a pit stop for me).

Is that a "Southern" feel a bad thing?

The Art Deco architecture in Asheville is incredible. If you're looking for an impressive skyline look elsewhere but for an interesting, eclectic small city dropped in the middle of some beautiful surroundings Asheville is hard to beat.
