Wish I could help. I live in the state and have never heard of the town. Sounds great though if it has the activities you listed .

If you'll post this in the western NC forum, you'll get more response. There are also plenty of threads about Weaverville already there. You might want to do a search.

Gman6974, you need to get out more often. Weaverville is just north of Asheville.

LOL, this is the Western NC city-data. Weaverville is a great little town north of Asheville. I lived there for a little while during college and liked it a lot. Lake Louise is awesome, and they are building some nice (and inexpensive) townhomes and patio homes right there next to the lake. An outdoorsman's paradise. Very pretty, people are friendly, easy drive to Asheville. Not sure about schools there, but wouldnt be suprised if there pretty decent. Havent lived there in about 6 or 7 yrs, so not sure about all th shopping. Perhaps there is more there now than when I lived there. I know they have the basics, but maybe now, they have more?

To clarify my earlier reply, the OP posted this thread in the general NC forum. One of the mods moved it.

"What sort of activities.. schools ... shopping.. social life... any golf ?

I am a long-time resident of Weaverville and to answer your question, water skiing is out . . . . but everything else is in! (Snow skiing is available 20 minutes North at Wolf Laurel) Golf is available locally at Reems Creek CC, which is an excellent public/private course, with a number of Donald Ross courses nearby. "Active-activities" abound with cycling, running, and hiking in nearby National Forests. Fishing and canoeing can be had on the nearby French Broad River, as well as smaller trout streams North of town.

At present, there are no movie theaters, playhouses, or "bars" in Weaverville. However, we just voted-in "liquor by the drink" and our first ABC store opened last year, so "social life" may increase as a matter of course. Right now, social life is centered on churches (which are abundant) and social networks within neighborhoods.
