Would you rather live outside of Greensboro or south of Asheville on the North/South Carolina border?

I got a job offer outside of Greensboro, NC! Yay! I also think I have a good chance of being offered a job on the North/South Carolina border south of Asheville. Unfortunately, I need to tell the Greensboro place tomorrow and will be waiting a week to hear from the other place, so there's some timeline awkwardness.
I have never been to NC. So, mefites, which place is better? The jobs are, all considered, about equal, each has their ups and downsides. I love outdoorsy things but also interesting cities. I'm interested in proximity to interesting things within a few hours drive as well.
This move will only for a short period, not even a year, so I'm more interested in fun things to do and general feel rather than property taxes or anything.
Added complication: My bf will be living in the closer-to-Asheville location, which is obviously a huge plus. But if I move there we will be working at the same company, which is awkward.
