I'm currently living in atlanta but i'm seriously thinking about moving. I'm thinking about north carolina(charlotte or raleigh) or Texas(Houston). Anyone have any advise on cost of living, schools, jobs, things for the kids to do( ages 17 and 14)....Thanks!

Texas has a better employment situation at the moment. Not that I'd want to go to Texas myself (too hot) but the unemployment numbers in NC right now are higher than they've been in decades. If you can get a job here it is a very nice place to live

That's a super-broad question...have you seen the search function on the right side of the screen? You may want to search there through old posts, as many people have asked that very question before you. Once you have things narrowed down, post again with some specific questions. People here will surely be able to help you. Be sure when you post again to post specifics like price range for homes/rent for apts, as well as the area you will be working. Best of luck!
