I live in Charlotte and to me it feels more like a town.

I do, and I love it.

I'm originally from New England, so maybe that's why.

It has a town feel to it and I L.O.V.E. it. When I go to DC and Atlanta, I enjoy the city feel, but I am RELIEVED to get back to Charlotte's big town feel. I could not be around that 24/7.

Funny, I moved from New England to CLT when I was in my early 20's, and part of the reason I liked CLT so much was because it felt like much more of a city to me than NE did. Part of that may have been my age (and the fact that I grew up in the north east), but I found that CLT had so much going on all the time, a really large population, and tons of neighborhoods (not to mention a pretty imposing skyline) - so to me it seemed like a more happening place. Like the new urban South.

I understand now that it behaves like a giant town rather than a proper city, but I still feel like I did when I first moved down. Interesting how the same place can strike people in totally different ways!

Coming from Miami, Orlando and Chicago, it feels like a big town to me too. I love it for that though.

Feels like a big town. I was attacked for saying that before though.
