Hi all,

I want to move to the South, but I am very unsure of where I want to move. I either want to move to North Carolina or Georgia. I do have a 4 year old son, it's just him and I. I have a B.S. in Criminal Justice and I want to work in law, social services, or any criminal justice field except for being a police officer. Right now I don't mind renting an apartment although I do want to buy a house.

Can someone please give me some advice on good places to move, based on the information provided above?


Thanks!!

I am just wondering why you skipped South Carolina. Maybe all Southerners should move there to preserve our culture. North Carolina has just about stopped being Southern and is now the tax everything as much as you can state.

No reason, I've never been to South Carolina, but it's not out of the question. Are you from S.C.? Where would you suggest to move to in S.C.? I am very open minded!!!

I'd recommend the major urban areas of the Carolinas and Georgia. Of course, I'd advise you to lock down a job first before moving. In NC, you've got Charlotte, the Triangle area (Raleigh/Durham), and the Triad area (Greensboro/Winston-Salem). In SC, you've got Columbia, Greenville, and Charleston. For Georgia, you've got Atlanta, Augusta, and Savannah. What exactly are you looking for in a place to live? Do you prefer an urban location, or something more on the suburban side? Type of amenities? Parks? Schools? Any preference in terms of size concerning the city/metro area you'd like to live in?

Hi, when it comes to a place to live, I am looking for either a house or apartment. IF an apartment it needs to be at least 2 bedrooms, full bath, living room, dining room, and a spacious kitchen. The kitchen and dining area can be combined. If I buy a house I would like 3 bedrooms(minimum) 1.5+ bathrooms, kitchen, dining room, living room and a full basement(preferably finished). I am flexible on amenities!! I prefer suburban if it's close to an urban area, I am also open to urban, if there are good schools in the area. I would like to send my son to a public school, I pay for school now and it's costly but it's worth what I pay. Parks and playgrounds close by are a huge need, my son loves the outdoors and I want him to have a place to go where we don't have to drive for an hour. The size of the city/metro area doesn't make a difference.
