After seeing it featured in MOther Earth News...I am thinkiong about adding it to our list of stops checking out the area this week for a relocation in the spring...
http://www.motherearthnews.com/Natur...-Carolina.aspx

Can anyone tell me more about the town and what's around it? We are looking for a rural spot, maybe an hour or so to Asheville.

Is it worth adding to our stops? Takes us about an hour out of the way... worth it or not?

Thanks!

ummmmmm thanks mother earth news......... organic restaurants????? its a pretty area but pretty conservative, not really much as far as a town, its like 2 blocks long with nothing all that interesting in it. The thriving arts scene??? not sure about that either. Lots of artists everywhere around this region but not too many artists I know in sylva are thriving. If these damn magazines keep running articles of "unheard of places" don't they realize they won't be unheard of anymore.

I spent 5 years in the Cullowhee/Sylva area when I was a student at Western Carolina University. I really enjoyed living there. Cant really put my finger on why since there isnt a lot of stuff to do, but the town just has a really nice feel to it.

Well, we've only been here a month, but I've seen nothing to support your idea that Sylva is racist. I can understand that maybe it would be boring for someone young, but Asheville is only an hour away.

Sylva is a wonderful example of small town mountain living, as far as I'm concerned. But to each his own I guess...
