Leicester North Carolina

The community of Leicester is where many go for peace and quiet, but who still want to stay close to town. The town is tucked away where rolling farm land and the mountains meet, and is less than 20 minutes to Downtown Asheville. Leicester sits 30 miles southeast of the Tennessee border, near the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, which makes it a great community for avid hikers and outdoor enthusiasts. This farm community has a large presence at the WNC Farmers Market, and helps provide Asheville with fresh produce and meats for the ever growing farm to table movement. Take a ride out Leicester Highway and make your way to popular Max Patch for some of the best views in Western North Carolina.
