-I'm very interested in both of these counties. I have an offer to teach in one and plan to pursue the other further. Can someone please tell me the pro's and con's of these areas. How do they differ, how are they the same? Thanks ahead of time for any info.

-Also I have been in contact with representatives from Harnett and Moore county schools as well. What is it like to live in these areas? I'm looking for a safe, affordable, and interesting community.

Mecklenburg Co is very progressive and diverse. The school system has a new Superintendent that seems to be making some very positive changes. Union County schools are popular with newcomers. The Charlotte area in general has a lot to offer. Take a look at visitCharlotte.com; newcomer.com and charmeck.org. If you're interested in seeing what homes are like you can look at my website, found in my profile.

Moore County is also nice; lot of retirees there at Pinehurst. Farm Life School is highly rated. Nice conservative rural areas mostly around Moore County.

For what it's worth...as a recent transplant to Union Co. I can't say enough nice things about the UCSD. They went above and beyond to accommodate us. I received numerous calls from the asst. Superintendent when we moved in and when another issue came up. The principal at our school is great and so are the teachers. This is our third school district in a year (we're done now) and this is the best....from a parent perspective. As for safety...the first place we've lived for a while that my kids can "take off" in the neighborhood and I feel totally safe for them. Good luck. All of those areas are beautiful and I'm sure you'll be very safe and happy.

I am also moving to Union County from Long Island in August. My kids will be in the Weddington school district and are 15, 12 and 10. Where do you live?
