Charlotte is such a beautiful and clean city, Atlanta is dirty and crime infested… I will say, people are way more snobby in Charlotte, a lot of Charlotte folks are rich bastards… [/SIZE]
Oh yeah, way more going on in Charlotte...
A dead thread was revived for this?

LoL

You cant even compare Charlotte to Atlanta..lol. That is like comparing Atlanta to NYC....two totally different cities. If you are looking for a boring city with nothing to do go to Charlotte. If you are looking to have fun in a big city with a cheap cost of living I highly recommend Atlanta. Atlanta has better shopping options, better nightlife, more middle class AA, better schools, more plays, sports teams, etc. On average Atlanta has more to do in one month verses the entire year in Charlotte.

Dont compare Charlotte to Atlanta. Compare it to Jacksonville, Norfolk, etc. Compare Atlanta to Dallas, Houston, DC, etc

Could someone define "Quality of Life" in the sense that Charlotte's is somehow better? I would like to know how.

We recently watched the documentary "Sprawling from Grace: The Consequences of Suburbanization" and Charlotte's mayor was featured with some great comments about what the city was doing with the future.

You've got to be kidding me. Unfortunately, Atlanta often ranks high nationally when it comes to crime; in the most recent ranking, thankfully it did slips a few spots but it's still #25 while Charlotte ranked #118. But of course, as with any city, it all boils down to where in the city/metro one chooses to live.

This is what is strange about crime in the Charlotte - you would not expect to happen where it does. For example - Concord Mills Mall is notorious for car break in's. Same thing for a gym I used to go to - Peak Fitness. One afternoon in broad day light some thugs were braking into cars in the parkin lot of Peak Fitness (located off of Tryon). So I would say that the crime is similar if you calibrate the size of Atlanta to Charlotte.

If that were the case, the crime rates would be similar but they aren't (and of course one can't do a citywide "crime calibration" based on a few isolated instances; you need access to comprehensive data for that). Honestly, those things are mild compared to some of the things I hear in metro Atlanta but Charlotte has its crazy crime stories also. Like I said, in terms of day to day living, it really depends on where one lives exactly.
