Greenville and Asheville Named Among “The Friendliest Cities in the U.S.: 2020 Readers’ Choice Awards” by Condé Nast Traveler

We know that Southern hospitality is real. And people, from local residents to vacationing visitors, can feel it in the crisp air of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Condé Nast Traveler set out to find the Friendliest Cities in the U.S. and it’s no surprise (especially to us) that two neighboring cities of our luxury mountain communities were named on their annual list backed by their Reader’s Choice Awards survey. 

Greenville, South Carolina, located just a short drive from The Cliffs Mountain Region communities, tops the Conde Nast list and once you experience the warm, sweet and welcoming charm of the city formerly known as “The Textile Capital of the World” it might be hard to leave. That’s why many families from near and far are flocking to The Cliffs to get the best of both a private luxury community with the ability to experience day trips or nights out on the town at this southern gem of a city – whether on Lake Keowee or on top of Glassy Mountain.

The friendly town is characterized by its unique charisma and energetic spirit and also was named one of America’s Best Small Cities.

Just north of The Cliffs at Walnut Cove sits Asheville, North Carolina. The charming mountain city has been seamlessly racking up awards during the past decade, so it’s no surprise Conde Nast Traveler included “The Land of Sky” at No. 10. It’s easy to see why the people of Asheville make some of the best (and friendliest) neighbors in the country. From craft breweries aplenty to James Beard Award winning chefs to a vibrant live music and art scene, everyone should have a smile on their face. 

The Cliffs at Walnut Cove is just minutes from Asheville and balances the beauty of the great outdoors (like the Pisgah National Forest and Blue Ridge Parkway) and city life (like The Orange Peel) perfectly.

When it comes time to find a place to call home, why not choose a location that offers all of the amenities of a big city with the simplicity and charm of a small town? With seven private luxury communities to choose from, The Cliffs could be the answer to your new home!
