Wilmington. Beach city, gorgeous downtown, amazing weather, not overly liberal like Asheville.

Asheville. Mountain city, gorgeous downtown, amazing weather, overly liberal.

Asheville. A cooler downtown with more to do, and I personally prefer the outdoor activities the mountains offer to the beach.

Asheville. More relaxed and laid back vibe, good weather, mountain scenery, much better downtown area.

Wilmington. Asheville is pretty but I think it is overhyped. I was a bit let down when we visited. I also prefer the beach to the mountains.

Hendersonville, not Asheville is my pick. Everybody and their brother is at the beach in the Summer and on any good weekend day the rest of the year.

Asheville for living, Wilmington for visiting.

Asheville, but the ocean that far away is a deal breaker for me. When I lived in Wilmington I found it to be a little too redneck-y conservative churchy for my liking. No offense if that's your thing - great - but it's not mine.

Love the downtown area but wouldn't want to live there permanently.
