Yo ask this question in the Bobcats forum. Lot of nice folks there who only check out that forum and pretty sure most of them live in NC.

They love basketball and NASCAR. Land is flat unless you drive out west to Winston-Salem and Ashville areas. Durham and Raleigh areas is a lot better than Charlotte(kinda ghetto).

That's all I remember during my 2-year residency in NC when I was a young teen. Still got distant relatives there; cousins and in-law's.

Yeah I live in the ****ing ghetto.


Charlotte's a great city. Small enough to feel like a small town but big enough to have a major airport, major league sports and world class restaurants. I live 2 hours from my mountain house and 3 hours from the beach. We have 4 seasons: spring, summer, fall and late fall. We recently hosted the Democratic National Convention and got rave reviews.

The research triangle is fun because of the 3 colleges there: UNC, NC State and Durham Clown College (otherwise known as Dook). I go back to Chapel Hill several times a year and always have a great time.

I wouldn't live anywhere else.

Apex used to be a small town but is now more of a suburb of Raleigh-Durham. I like the area but it's very spread out. A lot of nice suburbs with no real "urb" if you know what I mean.

If i didn't live in Florida, NC would be on my short list of places to live. Seems pretty close to everything a person would need and want, the exception being an MLB franchise.

i'll be passing through Charlotte in a few weeks. Seems like a nice city.

Let me know when you're in town. I can steer you towards the places where the young people (or so I hear ) hang. I love this time of year when all the hotties are sporting tights and come-fuck-me boots.

Having a big airport is key for me. I'm 2hrs or less from NYC, Boston, DC, ATL, Miami, etc. Makes for a fun long weekend.

I was stationed in North Carolina. Very nice place. People were very nice for the most part. Compared to where I come from where people are rude and nasty. It was a pleasant change. I lived out East. Visited Raleigh a few times. I heard the cost of living in Raleigh was high. But jobs pay well in that area.

That's what I'm coming to find that jobs are good and do pay pretty decent. I'm looking at renting and I'm finding some nice houses that are rent-to-own for pretty cheap.
