Hello Everyone,
I am new to this forum so please excuse the protocol. I am recently divorced. Retired military with an 8 years old son. My plans are to relocate from the Columbia, South Carolina area as soon as my son finishes the 2d grade this summer. My places of interest are Florida; Atlanta or the Charlotte area. I need to be close (45min - 1 hr) to a military installation. I do not necessary have to be in a big city but I would like to be close since I am single. I need good public schooling system for my son. Affordable housing ($100-150k). I need a place where there is a lot to do both for my son and myself, somewhere safe and affordable. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Have you checked the school district ratings for the cities you are considering? Georgia is known for having very low-ranking schools, so while I like Atlanta, I wouldn't want to raise a child there. For me personally, Florida is too muggy, so given the choices I would go with Charlotte.

Charlotte is DISGUSTING WITH RACISM. If you are WHITE UPPER MIDDLE TO UPPER CLASS WITH LOTS AND LOTS AND LOTS OF MONEY; then Move to Charlotte. People here, and I mean EVERYONE here Makes it OBVIOUS that they Dislike You if You Are Poor; Single Mother, who is of any other Race that is NOT WHITE.

Be careful with charloteans. I don't think they are hipocrits because they make it clear, that if you are not "white" with money to spend or give to them everytime they ask, then you are not welcomed in charlotte. Single mothers, poor, minorities, i emphasize "poor" again, hispanic or black, if you don't have money to give to everyone; or if you don't have a private health insurance, please don't come to charlotte. Oh! And be aware of how you will be treated, and your child too, by cms public school systems. Have sufficient money to send your child to "public schools" because "money" is the only thing that speaks in charlotte. Nothing else.
