You offered NO help to the poster at all....The poster may like Mayberry better...That argument never works...That's why I choose to live in Charlotte, NC (Mayberry) instead of NYC, ATL, LA....I love my Mayberry town

And it's funny how BOTH cities grew by 30,000 people in the last census (city limits only).....So apparently Mayberry is stacking up JUST as well to DC

Proportionally speaking in the city limits of course.

That's why I mentioned that. Still not bad for Mayberry

Nothing wrong with that if one doesn't mind a smaller city, especially since "Mayberry" has some of the best cuisine, most historically important sites, nationally ranked golf courses, and a world-renowned performing arts festival to its credit.



Thats right and living in "Mayberry" is great.

Right, I grew in Reston and was around before the Town Center had broken ground so I've seen the boom in the past 25 years. My biggest concerns with the DC area is naturally the traffic (making sure I can get home reasonably after long days work), and then making sure I can save money on my salary.

I know I can do both of those things in Charleston.

On the flip side, in Charleston I'm not sure how long I could do it since I'm with a company that is not as big. Whereas in DC the company I'm with has a history of good rewards and promotions. So maybe it is just a matter of waiting a year.
