Lived there for a few years, it was my least favorite city and I have lived in a few including Peoria Illinois. I found the city to be very slow, didn’t think there was much to do and the social scene was extreme clicky and didn’t meet too many stimulating people; most people I met who were fun were generally not from Charlotte. Upside, I golfed a lot and could bike all year round.

Worked they're for about a year on various clients. Good investment growth opportunities in re, good for families and activities - sorts, Whitewater center, Asheville/ Boone/ Charleston are close. Raleigh is cool too. Good job prospects too. Good foodie too considering they have a culinary school in town. Be

Have lived there for a few years and love it. Yes, it’s slower than NYC, but then again, aren’t most places? I have generally found folks to be super nice - tons of working professionals and relatively easy to make friends if you put in a little effort.

Depending on what you’re looking for, tons of breweries / bars just south of the downtown area.

My wife and I are up north by lake Norman, which is a bit more tranquil / more family oriented (tho we don’t have kids and still really love the area). Right now traffic can be rough if you live north of the city (by Lake Norman), but they’re finishing a highway expansion which includes a toll lane with demand-based pricing, so soon shouldn’t be more than 30 mins to downtown no matter time of day.

Airport is large and easy / quick to get to - much better than NYC area (tho admittedly your bar is pretty low). Downside is it’s an AA “fortress hub” (good WSJ article about this), so tough to fly with anyone else.

City and surrounding areas are still rapidly growing - more and more things to do always popping up.
