Cost of living is on the high side in Asheville. Cool area though.
You can live outside of Asheville just fine.  Lots to do in the area, especially if you're into mountain biking.

Asheville would have a shitty airport (but would be great otherwise)

Delta, American, and United all fly out of there to their regional hubs. it wouldn't be much worse than Savannah/Charleston where you are stopping off at those same places anyway.

any of the college towns would be good spots as well. Columbia, Athens, Charlottesville, etc. but with similar airport issues. not sure just how major of an airport you are requiring here. college towns will have good education if you have kids, arts if you art, etc.

Yeah I think those airports would suck, too if you're flying weekly.

The OP said airport convenience was a must.  If you really need direct flights and fly a lot, I'd move to Atlanta...more directs than anywhere else.  I think the town gets a bad rap.  There is a lot to do, and there is a vibrant arts community there too.  Ride the train to the airport. Easy peasy.

Yes Atlanta is gross but the entire southeast is gross so maybe Atlanta is towards the top of the list of gross but not as gross as like Starkville, MS.

yeah, he also said "decent" which I think needs to be fleshed out more.

Yeah I've long said that college towns seem to offer the best quality of life to cost of living ratio. Decent education systems, culture, public transportation, etc. for relatively cheap.

I love Atlanta, obviously, I'm black but that train ride to/from the airport is shitty.

what's the appeal of atlanta?  i'm not down with the south, in general, but really dislike that city more than others.

Is it obvious that MIR loves Atlanta or that he's black?  Also does being black make Atlanta more loveable?  If so, is the OP black?

It's the cultural center of the south and arguably the cultural center of Black America. Plus it would be nice for frequent travel. Those features obviously will appeal to some more than others.

the cultural center thing is so subjective that it seems like a non-starter and having hartsfield as your home airport would suck giant balls


can't imagine someone answering "why did you move to atlanta?" with that it's the cultural center of the south, but anyway

Yeah pretty much every factor people consider when choosing where to live (outside of cost of living and maybe school test scores) is subjective. And even those factors are considered with some degree of subjectivity.

Atlanta and Houston would be great cities to live in when young and very annoying to live in with families.
