For me personally, North Carolina is just too Southern. Even though people say North Carolina is where a bunch of Nor'easters and Florida "half-backs" go for bigger, newer, cheaper housing or a more "family-friendly" atmosphere, I disagree. North Carolina, especially in the smaller towns and rural areas, is very backwards. There's still too much "Bubba talk" and too many "Bible thumpers" for me to truly like it there. Not to mention people don't particularly care for "Yankees" all that much, either.

In the bigger cities and their suburbs, you get lots of transplants from the Northeast and Florida with entitlement issues, aggressive driving habits and all-around bad attitudes. People from those areas aren't particularly polite, courteous or friendly, hence one of the reason why North Carolina natives take so much issue with "Yankees." That, plus East Coasters tend to be "hard nuts to crack."

I'd honestly skip North Carolina all together. The same crowd that trampled Florida is very quickly turning North Carolina into Florida 2.0.
North Carolina is where a bunch of upper East Coast coastal storms go to find cheaper housing?

Sounds like OP has a case of the grass is always greener. I feel almost the complete opposite and I'm on the east coast.

What makes you want to live in the West instead of the East?

For Christ's sake, stay on the west coast and leave Dixie out of it.
