Five Points is a large neighborhood located in the trendy Asheville, North Carolina area. Five Points is largely a residential neighborhood, but there is a strip of commercial properties. Additionally, this neighborhood is home to the University of North Carolina! Residentially, there are a few apartment complexes closer to the college campus, but Five Points is predominantly composed of standalone, single-family homes. Many of the commercial spaces in this neighborhood are along the southeast border and along Merrimon Avenue. There, you will find several grocery stores, chain restaurants, churches, a gas station, and a local coffee shop. 


Asheville itself is known as a trendy and unique city, sometimes known as the "San Francisco of the East." Known for being home to plenty of local breweries, music venues, and art studios, Asheville is settled near the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It is becoming an increasingly popular tourist destination and for good reason!

For the most part, Five Points should be a great neighborhood for you and your pup to explore while on your daily walks. First, most of the neighborhood has well-maintained sidewalks. While using these sidewalks, you will predominantly be in a quiet residential neighborhood. These residential areas also have quite a few trees to help shade you from the hot, summer sun. However, the eastern border of neighborhood is not residential, has a major road, and has higher traffic.


Asheville is located in the Blue Ridge Mountains, so some hills are to be expected while exploring the Five Points neighborhood. The hills are sporadic throughout the area, but many of them are a bit on the steeper side. Just be careful while out walking, particularly if you or your pup have any mobility issues. 

The boundaries of Five Points include University Heights and West T. Weaver Boulevard to the north, Merrimon Avenue to the east, Broadway Street and Reed Creek to the south, and Campus Drive to the west.
