Shouldnt really have to explain why.
Ok sweet, Cleveland still has more to offer than Charlotte. You can disspute this all you want, but the facts are there. Charlotte is growing now, but I don't give it long. That area is extremely overrated. I already know three people I work with at CareSource who moved here from NC. BTW, your lack of knowledge of Cleveland is pretty interesting to say the least.

Cleveland is a real city. Charlotte is not. Enough said. Well, OK, I'll add one more thing: within a year, if it's not already, Cleveland will be doing better than Charlotte.

If you're interested in Charlotte, just pick a generic suburb of any city with relatively low unemployment. Charlotte is in a state of collapse.

Wrong. Charlotte is in a state of correction. A state of collapse is what you folks experienced post-steel. BIG difference.

Seems like people from Charlotte have no idea about the culture, diversity, and amenities of Northeast Ohio.. it's okay though, ignorance is bliss.

People from the Northeast were probably saying the same things about the cities of the Midwest when your cities were the boomtowns. Now the tables have turned. It's just our time to shine down here in the Sunbelt, that's all. Sorry if y'all can't accept that but hey, that's the reality. We've made some mistakes in the past but are working diligently to correct them and move forward into the future, and we're making great progress with that. If y'all choose to focus on our past mistakes instead of all that we're doing right, then that's on you. We'll get along just fine without you.

So what do you have then? Name some things.

All of your college grads are moving to Charlotte. I've met 14 people at least in the last year that have all either graduated from BG, OU or OSU and all moved here.

Both have basketball teams. Both have football teams (1 place's basketball is good while one teams football is good). Both have colleges (although our's are just as good but much cheaper).

We have mountains and beaches. You have a lake and lots of rainy/snowy days.

You have the Rock and Roll hall of fame. We have the nascar hall of fame (I'll concede that point)

We have 9 Fortune 500 companies in our area. You have 11.

You have a bad pro baseball team. We just have a decent AAA baseball team.

We have the national whitewater center, 3 lakes within 30-45 mins, discovery place, carowinds, some of the best golf in the country and much better weather.
