Buncombe County, in the eastern tail of North Carolina, has a pretty funny story regarding its name. After its congressman gave a passionate speech for Buncombe in Congress at entirely the wrong moment, people started using the Buncombe, spelt bunkum, as a term for nonsensical talk. That was later shortened to bunk and then debunk. When you move to Buncombe County, you can both laugh with your friends about the associations of bunk and Buncombe and rest triumphant in knowing you live in a county that has entirely debunked any possible claim that it is not one of the best places to live in the country. One of Buncombe County’s major draws lies in its natural areas. Partly home to two amazing national parks, the Blue Ridge Parkway, which traverses the Great Smoky Mountains and remains one of the most visited parks in the entire national park system, and Pisgah National Forest, an incredibly beautiful natural landscape of tree covered mountains, streams, waterfalls, and trails, Buncombe County is second to none in the nature department. It is also a premier urban county, with Asheville as its star. The city has an illustrious history, and is consistently awarded all sorts of accolades, from “Best Outside Towns” to one of the most beautiful places in America to a best beer city to one of the south’s most romantic cities to the happiest city to the “New Age Mecca.” Seriously, the accolades of Asheville pile up year after year— it is an oasis of a city.
