How is the nightlife in Austin for say 25-40 singles y/o crowd? Specifically young and never married, which is a metric often ignored.
In terms of metrics like this... NYC is #1 for young professionals, while Tampa is dead last for instance, even behind Detroit and Indianapolis.
While I hear Charlotte is just more conservative and family oriented altogether, even compared with Atlanta just down the road.
Those would both be turnoffs to me.
Anyone care to comment?
Highly disagree plenty of outdoor activities for the elderly

Austin is in my homestate and close to my hometown, but I'd still rather live in Charlotte. That's just how much I don't care for Austin.

Charlotte might be considered pretty dull, but it's still in a nice location. Proximity to the mountains, beaches, and Atlanta and a handful of a few other cool cities. Plus, it's only 11 hours from NYC.
