hi all, I lived in columbia, sc my whole life 42 years and have been living in phoenix the last 3. I have come to love phoenix, but have decided to move back to the southeast to be closer to family members. it is looking like it will be charlotte and my husband is familiar with the area, but has been many years since he lived there and a lot has changed.

We have a 10 year old daughter that is used to going to schools here in Phoenix that are newer, but also with a lot going on and education that keeps the kids challenged.

Our current neighborhood has 2 schools located in it, a huge park with a small lake, neighbors are close and usually always things going on in the neighborhood and lot's of holiday decorating, and of special concern sidewalks throughout for safety.

What areas, sections, subdivisions in or around charlotte would offer good schools and safe neighborhoods? We would initially be renting and I don't want to pay more than $1400.00 per month for rent. We've used zillow for looking and have been told by some folks that the east side is preferred, but we don't know for sure. any areas we should avoid?
