The Hendersonville area has long been known as one of the top locations in the country for the newly retired to settle down, but it would be an injustice to define the area as just a retirement destination. The downtown district along Main Street has been revitalized to become a bustling hub of shops, restaurants, and galleries yet still retains its small town charm. Rivaling what you would see in Downtown Asheville, but on a smaller scale, a walk down Main Street on a sunny afternoon is a must for visitors.
Hendersonville is also renowned for its abundance of apple orchards and its yearly NC Apple Festival is a must should you find yourself nearby on Labor Day weekend. Main Street becomes a hive of live music, food, family activities, and a parade, all celebrating Hendersonville’s most distinctive, and delicious, feature.
