Reading alot about the great places to frequent in Charlotte along with "I know what areas to stay away from". What are those areas?
A friend is looking at Ballantyne(ine), South Park and was just told about Dillworth.
Young professional male looking to be close enough to the "city" to enjoy going out without a long trip home. He also wants a safe neighborhood.
He will rent for about a year and then perhaps buy a home.
Thanks in advance.

Ballantyne is part of Charlotte. If you take 77S to 485 you can easily get back & forth in about 1/2 hour during non-rush hour periods. Its a little longer if you take Park Rd to Johnston Rd.

What sort of price range are you wanting to stay within?

$800-$1000 for rent. Have seen a lot of apartment complexes. All look okay. Just need real input from locals.

All of the areas you mentioned are good areas. Only places I would stay away from are west Charlotte and north of town along Statesville Ave., Graham St., and North Tryon close to downtown.

I think PC means "the city" as in central CLT/Uptown. Ballantyne is technically in the city limits, but it is in the outer fringe of the limits, and is suburban.

I've been told that West Charlotte is the less desirable part of Charlotte to live in. I've heard bad things about Hidden Valley off Sugar Creek Rd. too.
