Hey everyone! I'm about to finish school and am very interested in moving to Charlotte. I love the south, especially the Carolinas I was wondering if Charlotte is a good city for single young professionals -- I don't know anyone there, is it easy to meet people? How's the night life? I'd love some info! Thanks!

I'm actually interested in this question myself. I have kids in their 20's and I'm not sure what would lure them here.

What do you like about the Carolinas? Where are you coming from?

So you think 2-5 years Charlotte will be more exciting?

Yep - there are so many condo projects going up downtown, the Epicenter project is one, and it will include a bowling alley and a movie theater. Condos usually attract young singles/professionals, so you will definately see more bars/clubs pop up. Plus, SouthPark shopping will get even better I'm sure.

Yes I have been researching that Epicenter, it looks pretty nice. I should invest in one of those condos.

I agree with you, I think in 5 years this place will be pretty exciting and a heck of a lot more expensive.

Most young people enjoy huge, crowded cities. It is where the action is. I have plenty of time to get married and have a family, although I would prefer my children be raised in a huge, crowded city because I want them to experience the diveristy and the opportunities a big city can offer. Personally, I'm not into the small town, sheltered lifestyle for my children, It all sounds nice but it is not my cup of tea - no offense to anyone who would. Everyone is different, and that is what makes the world go round.

There are some great parties for the younger crowds on the lake and near the track "racer central". The racers throw great parties if your lucky enough to get invited. Coworker met two of his wives at those. You know the type Hot but not to smart. If you got ask "if you will fit in" sounds like you will do just fine. As they say "Come down" and maybe you will meet the next "Ricky BoBBY".

I'm in the same boat as you (I'm a 25yo male, single, young professional), I'm actually headed there this weekend to check it out (looking to move to either Charlotte or Atlanta, at this point leaning towards Charlotte). I have friends in both Atlanta and Charlotte, and they each actually love both cities. They all say Charlotte is like Atlanta, only smaller and with less traffic (and still a ton of fun)...cost of living is about the same in both cities...

But I'm def. looking for some insight as well!
