Hi Everyone! I have been a long time reader of the city-data forum and think it is a wonderful resource to gain information on an area when considering a relocation. Currently my partner and I live in Asheville NC. We moved here 2 years ago and things just haven't worked for us. Cost of living is too high, wages are low in comparison, medical care here is NOT what Im use to. I could go on but the reason I am posting is I'd like to hear some positive and negative things (activities, crime, cost of living, friendly residents, great restaurants, quality of living etc) about Burlington. I'm originally from the Charlotte area. I'm a native of our great state and have traveled it from one end to the other many times. However I haven't been to Burlington in about 10 years. We will need a 4 bedroom house for no more then $1,000 a month. Is this do-able in the Burlington area? Any information both positive and negative will be greatly appreciated.

Well there's definitely more stuff than there was 10 years ago, but there's still not that much, especially compared to Asheville. If wages and medical care are a concern, you're better off looking somewhere else. Housing's cheap enough, though, but mostly due to the lack of things around. Which is also the reason it's turned into an outer ring suburb for people working in Greensboro and increasingly RTP; probably another 5-10 years before development catches up toward that trend as far as things for people to do goes.

When looking at the whole area, there's plenty to do. More than Asheville...
