I currently live in Kings Mountain (in the city) & moved here from the Philly suburbs (Cherry Hill). I might be able to give you some comparisons that you can identify with. I have not been here a long time, but I will do my best if you need to know something.

I understand totally. That's why I'm here.

The Eastridge Mall in Gastonia is a decent mall. (think Moorestown mall) Also, there is a shopping strip on Franklin Blvd in Gastonia that concentrates a huge selection of stores & is much more convenient that driving around in South Jersey to get to the same stores.

The biggest difference here is the supermarkets. However, there is a chain called Ingles which has supermarkets in Kings Mountain & Dallas (a small town in Gaston County) that is as close as you will find to the big supermarkets in South Jersey. There is an Aldi in Gastonia & another in Shelby. I usually go to the stores in Gastonia, but sometimes go to the ones in Shelby. I can get to the shopping in either town in 15 minutes or less (usually 10 minutes).

What ComfortFood told you is absolutely the truth.

Another thing that is different from South Jersey is that some of Kings Mountain is within the city limits & the rest is unincorporated.

The mail all comes from the same post office & children attend the same schools, but services are different within the city. Think Burlington City & Burlington Twp.

There are kennels.

The 2 nearest Costcos are Charlotte & Spartanburg, SC.

Yes, you have to take a written test to change your license. If you do well enough, they might waive the road test. I did well enough that the road test was waived.

Ashville is in the mountains & is about 90 miles away. The beach is about 3 hours away.
