Exploring the Active Adult Communities in Hendersonville, North Carolina

Let\'s explore the active adult communities with attractive homes and top-notch amenities in Hendersonville, North Carolina.

Though Asheville, North Carolina often steals that spotlight when it comes to popular places to live in Western North Carolina, the small, charming town of Hendersonville stacks up pretty well against the city when it comes to spectacular scenery and countless outdoor recreation options. The area also boasts a variety of local boutiques, eateries, and coffee shops, and it’s famous for its annual apple festival.
