What city and state, province, territory do you live in? Outside of Boone, NC
How long have you been living where you live now? I’ve lived there for almost 3 years; my Fiance has been there his entire life. I lived in Charlotte before moving here, and Raleigh before that.
Do you own or rent? My Fiance owns the house.
Why did you choose where you live now (if applicable)? Because it’s where my Fiance lives. I actively chose to move to NC in 2001 because I love it. I went to college here in the 1980s and then left, but wanted to get back as I got older. It’s a nice blend of southern culture yet educated and fairly sophisticated population, with four seaons which were sorely lacking in Florida where I grew up.
What is your favorite restaurant in your city or town? There are a bunch of good local restaurants. The most famous one is Daniel Boone Inn. It’s not my favorite, but it’s memorable.
What is your favorite park (can be nature/walking or amusement) in your city or town? There are a bunch of great parks right off the Blue Ridge Parkway which cuts right through town.
What is your favorite nightlife area in your city or town? Nightlife is weak and/or centered around the university students, but since I’m 46, that’s okay. We just drink wine at restaurants or at one of the many nearby vineyards.
What is your favorite touristy thing to do in your city or town? Drive the Blue Ridge Parkway, hike on trails off the Parkway, vist Blowing Rock and Grandfather Mountain.
Would you recommend tourists visit you city, state, province, or territory? Why or why not? It’s a prety major tourist attraction because of the mountains and Blowing Rock.
What do you like least about where you live? Sometimes I wish we were closer to a big city, but most times I love being a little farther away. Winston-Salem and Charlotte are both 1.5 hours away so we can get “big city culture” there.
Do you plan on staying where you live long term? We are not going anywhere.
Also, I don’t think these questions are creepy, and I can understand why you would ask. It’s not like you are asking for our full names and addresses, and even if you were, they are most likely all over the internet anyway. lol
