Hello,

I'm a New Yorker looking to relocate to a funky, tolerant, artsy, town with affordable rents and at least a few ad agencies and the two that keep coming up are Louisville and Asheville.

Anyone being to both and can describe the differences?

I know I'll need to visit them both, but funds are limited so I'm trying to do as much research online as I can.

Louisville to me seems almost more old and peeling-paint charming while Asheville seems to have a more shiny vibe to it. That's my web impression. Please set me straight.

Ready? Go.

Thank you.

There is no comparison. You are comparing a small town to one the nation's top 50 cities. It is like comparing Louisville to NYC or Chicago. There is plenty shiny and new about Louisville. Both cities are very pretty and have a nice indie vibe, but of course the scene is much larger in the larger Louisville. If you wish to compare Louisville to NC cities, a more fair comparison is to Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill.
