You can't go wrong with either city. My advice would be which ever city can provide the best employment opportunity for you.

There actually is a great comedy club in Charlotte. There is also a couple of nice jazz clubs in Charlotte as well. I don't know if Raleigh has these things but I am prety sure they do. Raleigh has better museums than Charlotte I think, but that's not to say that Charlotte doesn't have nice ones too (not sure if you like those things, but they're there in case you wondered). I would recommend Charlotte, cuz I live here and it also has a bigger school district, but Raleigh's school district is only slightly smaller. I am also not a female but I hope my opinion still counts. Good luck.

I'd let the job decide. I don't think you could go wrong with either one.

Actually Viginia (ie Norfolk/Hampton areas) are much more diverse and then you're RIGHT near the beach, so just FYI you might not want to discount that area unless of course the job says otherwise - good luck!

I live in Florida now and though Iíve thoroughly enjoyed my 9 year stint here Ė I am definitely ready for a change. I am truly interested in moving to Charlotte but Iíve been getting so many mixed reviews. I will be going for a visit next month. It takes me about 10 hours to drive to Greensboro, which is about 45 minutes from Charlotte (Iím definitely not a speed-race driver!). I will let you know how it goes. I work in the architectural/engineering industry (preferably architectural) and there seems to be an abundance of a/e firms in the Charlotte area. I plan to move by 06/08 Ė God willing Ė my house here has been on the market for 4 months already. The real estate market is a bust in Florida and I definitely want to sell my house before I move. Iíve obtained information on some areas in Charlotte that you may be interested in Ė if so, pm me and Iíll forward it to you.
Good luck and God Bless!
Just an FYI...you can not drive from Greensboro to Charlotte in 45 minutes...it is 1hr and 45 minutes...not including traffic depending on time of day.
