Hello all!

A little background info about me. As the titled stated I am a single mid twenties female with interests in relocating. I presently live in bustling NYC, but have lived in the small (but cold!) city of Boston, and I grew up in the boondocks of Maine. So I have had experiences from both ends of the spectrum. However, now I want to find something in the middle, but with plenty of energy and liveliness.

I have a stable career in health insurance that I can take with me when I move, because I work from home. North Carolina was suggested to me as a place to live as a close friend lives near Raleigh. I am wondering which city and neighborhood would be best to live in? I've been leaning more so towards Raleigh.

I do not own a car, but assume I will need to have one when I move. I also plan to rent when I relocate, with a budget of around 1000 +/-. As you can imagine, after living in NYC for a year I would like to live somewhere affordable and save my money for something bigger.

I hope some of you can help me out. I've been researching on my own, and would like to hear from the locals perspective. I have narrowed is down between moving to CT or NC. However, the affordability, safety, and weather of NC is very alluring.


Also if you have any helpful information or advice that would also be appreciated!
Thank you!

Also, if there are any Hash House Harriers members reading this your input would be appreciated too! Especially in regards to what the kennels are like there. If I do move your pack will certainly be glad to have me!

How did you ever survive in such a small city like Boston!? I mean, it's barely on the map...

@ucctgg Thank you for the suggestion. I just moved a copy of my post there. Hope that helps!

@topchief1 Haha! It wasn't too hard. I mean it is one of the largest city consumers of beer.

That would explain the street setup.

You can live a "southern" urban lifestyle with no car in downtown Wilmington or downtown Charlotte...lots of things to do in each place.

And before folks say its not possible, I know a number of people who have lived in each for extended periods of time. Renting in the Historic District close to the river in Wilmington is a wonderful experience that is hard to duplicate in NC.
