If you are married with children, then Charlotte is a great place to live and I'd recomment it over Atlanta. Otherwise I'd say Atlanta all the way. I lived in both cities.

Average July highs are 90.1F for CLT and 89.4F for ATL. Too hot for me.

Traffic in Atlanta is much, much worse than Charlotte. I like both cities, but could not live in Atlanta. Visiting it is great though.

What is the difference between Charlotte and suburbian Atlanta? We are thinking about relocating to one of those areas, but if we choose Atlanta it would be in the suburbs not the city.

Atlanta is bigger and Charlotte has a compulsion to compete with them.

I lived in Atlanta for 2 yrs before moving to Charlotte. I've now been in Charlotte 2.5 years. For me, Atlanta was perfect for being young and single, also building up a career. I can't really imagine going back now though. If you're married, or married w/ kids, Charlotte just seems a little more family friendly to me. Also, property is more affordable, but not for long. We'll catch up to Atlanta very soon I'm sure. Weather is about the same. I don't notice any major differences with that.

One is in NC and the Other isn't. Sorry I couldn't resist.

I've never been to ATL but I heard it was awsome!

Charlotte is much more diverse. I looked at Atlanta when I decided Seattle's housing prices were not for me, and I was disappointed at the lack of diversity in Atlanta. I kind of stumbled across Charlotte, and I'm glad I did!

Traffic in Atlanta is awful. Charlotte's traffic has nothing on Atlanta. Even if you picked the burbs of Atlanta, you will spend the majority of your time commuting to and from work NOT GOOD. Like the others have said if you are single then Atlanta is a great place. Charlotte has a more family suburb feel.
