I have a similar story. Lived there three years and absolutely loved it! Never planned to leave but got a decent job offer and moved west with the intention of moving back after a couple of years. Still trying to find a way back.

Charlotte has a health offering of everything and it is only getting better. Not saying we are great, but we are trying and on our way. I do want to be young enough to ride on the red line when it gets built in the next decade or so. I am in Boston as I write. I enjoy Boston, but I am always happy to return home to the Charlotte area. I just wish we had an ocean closer by.

I lived in Charlotte for 5 years, then moved away for a job. At the time I didn't think I'd come back---I liked Charlotte just fine, but didn't really feel at home here.

Lived in Seattle for 4 years and hated every minute of it. I have never been more depressed. Watching it rain for 9 months out of the year would make anyone want to jump off a cliff.

Back in Charlotte (Union County) and loving it. It took seeing what life was like "on the other side of the fence" to realize Charlotte is a pretty damn great place to live. It's inexpensive, people are friendly, and the sun shines year round.

Sometimes it's all about perspective!

Hi Desta! I'm also relocating there in June 2017 from Chicago with 2 high schoolers. Have researched several places as well. I'd be interested in finding out which location you chose or will be choosing. Do you have children? I plan on visiting again beginning of January. Any feedback would be simply cool. Thanks!

Hi Leekhiz! I had actually looked into the neighboring suburb of Concord because I was told that the school system was better in Cabarus County. I have a 2 year old son, so a quality school system was important to me. But while I complete my graduate degree (I plan on attending UNC Charlotte), I might live in Charlotte for a short spell just to stay closer to the campus because I intend to be a full-time, day student...so for the first couple of years, I may stay in Charlotte and then move to Concord...I didn't explore the area as extensively as I wanted to when I last visited in May, but I too will be going back in January to scope things out!
