Man...I kid you not, all this talk about the Carolinas in different sections of City-Data has me wanting to book a flight just for kicks. I'm actually looking at flights right now!

Yeah I've been to Charlotte and Asheville. Raleigh seems like an interesting place to check out.

Raleigh's definitely nice.

Very educated population.

A little on the expensive side, but not too bad.

Allegiantair has really cheap flights from Sanford. If you book at the right time, you can get the flights $39 each way. They have several locations to fly to, Greenville, SC is one, then you have Asheville, NC and Concord, NC.

I was negotiating to move to Greenville for my company a few years back and was looking for something in that gorgeous downtown area but at the last minute, new policies at the company restricted moves so I stayed in Washington. Greenville downtown is an example of good planning and talented architects and artists.

Is Downtown Greenville really that special? Or is it just extremely good for the size of the city? I've always liked Albany, NY...which has a city population of 98 thousand, and I've always liked it for how impressive the Downtown/surrounding areas are for a city of its size. I guess Greenville would be similar to that?
