I live in NC with my sister. We've been here for a few years now, and feel like it's a time for a change. We are looking for somewhere to move to. We are not southerners, we're from CT. We are into cool music, we're not tools, we aren't crazy about sports like the people around us are. We enjoy the amenities of a college town, though not sure we'd want to be smack dab in the middle of one again. We would like to try to move somewhere not terrible far from here, we'd rather avoid going all the way back up north, due to heating costs being off the hee-yock. we'd like to be somewhere close to a major city, with enough going on in it's own right. A place with a decent scene, not too bland. nice, smart people. cost of living not too high, unemployment not too rampant. those are a bunch of things, but we don't want to move somewhere we feel has less to offer than this area (chapel hill), does, even though this area is lacking in culture and the people don't seem to be too concerned with intellectual things, just book smart robots. any suggestions would be awesome! thanks.

You might look at Nashville. It pretty much speaks to all of your criteria...especially with a low unemployment rate (6.4%), low cost of living, nice people, better than average intelligence ratio (a bit of a college town vibe w/ Vanderbilt University), varied cultural amenities, obviously excellent music scene and a moderate climate lacking in a severe winter.
