Asheville Neighborhood Map
Most Desirable Neighborhoods In Asheville
Here is an Asheville neighborhood map including the most desirable neighborhoods in Asheville.
Many older homes have been fully renovated in these neighborhoods. There are some newer homes but they are generally built on smaller lots. The nicer neighborhoods that are walkable to downtown (DARN – Downtown Asheville Residential Neighbors) include Montford, Claxton, Chestnut Hills and Charlotte Street. All neighborhoods north of I-240 and east of 19-23/74 are desirable neighborhoods. Asheville natives know that this area is the place to be.
Merrimon Ave Restaurants
Even though there aren’t a ton of restaurants on Merrimon Ave, we have a few that draw frequent and repeat visits. Avenue M (finer dining with a family appeal), Plant (vegetarian/vegan meals), Home Grown (for some nice staple meals), Asheville Pizza & Brewing Company (we spend way too much time here!, excellent pizza, beer, game room for kids and CHEAP movies!) and Zen Sushi (great Japanese and Sushi located on the top floor of Merrimon Square).
Merrimon Grocery Stores
We have the best grocery stores in town! Ingles on North Merrimon is one of (if not “the”) best Ingles around. With more organic choices and great beer always on sale! They’ve “got our number” so to speak. We also have Fresh Market (gourmet selections), Trader Joe’s and a small Whole Foods Grocery called Green Life.
