I have never been to Texas other than a few airports so can't say much about it. However; I LOVE North Carolina. It's a beautiful state with a lot to offer. There is a lot to do and the people are very friendly and kind people.

I'd like to spend some time in Texas and see what it's all about. But right now, I can't say since I haven't been there!

Exactly. Texas lies on multiple large geographical areas.

Yeah it is pretty diverse. We all know that. But Charlotte is just as far of a long drive to some of those places as Texas big cities are to some of there scenic places. But yeah NC is diverse. Lake Norman kinda reminds me of lake travis.

Charlotte is 2.5 hours from Wilmington, 2 hours from Raleigh, 1.5 hours from Greensboro, 1.5 hours from Asheville, 1 hour from Winston-Salem, and 2.5-3 hours from the beaches.

Those seem like easy drives. Just like austin to the big three cities. And Houston to the beach. Not much different.

I like both states. My dad lives in the Dallas area and he likes it, I do too. I think overall though I'm gonna have to say NC because I've never been to places like Amarilo,Lubbock, or Houston.

One thing I will say is this, Texas drivers are a lot less irritating than NC drivers
