Local Area: I love the Boone area. The winters are cold but that is expected. I love college so much more than High School. I feel like everyone in this town is accepting.

Local Area: If you love the mountains and beautiful scenery, App is the best. There are National and State Parks close by, so hiking is easy and fun to take advantage of. The locals are great, and about half the population of Boone consists of students, so the town is young and friendly. I would totally live here after I graduate.
