Hickory, NC is a really nice small metro that's affordable, growing at a reasonable rate, great weather, and is in the foothills.

I guess it is like "survival of the fittest", we all strive to live in a better place, with more economic prosperity, and as much natural beauty and all the comforimities that we have grown accustomed to. Unfortunately, some people destroy or disrespect these values and a disregard or lack of responsiblity takes over. Hopefully, the people who move here will appreciate the reasons for coming here and help to preserve the goodness of tha Carolinas.

I think Western North Carolina and Asheville is very beautiful. I visited Raleigh many times and often thought that it was quite boring. It seems that everyone is moving there though and I can see it going downhill fast.

What's the definition of ruined? Personally, if I had the money to up and move and if my S.O. was up for relocating, I'd probably be out of here, but that's not to say that this area is just a wasteland. There may not be as much fresh forest air and the interstates may be a bit crowded, but I wouldn't say this area is ruined...maybe a better group of words would be--"the secret is out"...now it was mentioned that there's a lot of natural beauty here--the mountains are just as beautiful as they used to be (and I'm still scared to death to drive around them!) and the beaches are still lovely...the cities are getting bigger and real estate has boomed and continues to do so, but it's not ridiculously expensive--yet...I guess we all have our own definition of certain words and I wouldn't have used that one to describe the state of either Carolina.

It is very true, it is all about what you comparing it to. Coming from North East, real estate is booming and pricing are low compared to NY, NJ, Ct and such, but having been here for a little bit, also started to notice prices increasing with the number of people coming down. Still is is the best move I ever made and have no regrets, wish I would have done it sooner.
