My husband is a true "Charlottean". He always tells my kids "I lived in Charlotte when UPTOWN was called DOWNTOWN".

Monroe, NC ----> Charlotte, NC

Wow, the vast majority of you aren't from here originally. I would imagine that that wouldn't project to the larger population though, as most people don't know about this website.

Good luck on your move; I came from Irvine, about 10 minutes up the road from your destination.

As a head's up, it's Aliso Viejo (you don't want to make that typo once you get there); if you need help getting prepared for the life there, just spend a lot of time in Ballantyne. The wife and I were in Ballantyne last night, and were struck by how similar everything there is to AV. The dead giveaways included the too-small parking lots filled with too-large SUVs, the new-ish construction, curved boulevards built on hills, and the crowds at the local restaurants on Saturday night. The shopping center with the lit tower on the corner of Johnston and Ballantyne Commons has a twin in Mission Viejo (right next door to Aliso Viejo), called "Kaleidoscope".

We're very happy to be on this side of the Mississippi, and a little bout of homesickness is easily cured by a night like last night. I hope the move is a good one for you.
