Yes, NC is still the place to be.
Did you happen to read where the OP is located?

Do you know anything about Philadelphia? It's a larger city than any in NC. closer to the South Jersey shore than the major cities in NC are to the coast. It's no further from the Poconos than Charlotte is from the mountains. You practically gave a description of Philadelphia.

How is that even relevant?

Philadelphia is a city, not a state. Which is what the topic is about.

Try rereading your comment & what I said about Philadelphia. If you still don't get it, I'll elaborate.

The poster, which happens to be from a city who shares such characteristics with North Carolina asking if NC is still a hot-state, and my reasoning to why it is doesn't seem relevant at all.

Why do I love NC?

Generally warm weather, but there are still seasons. It gets hot, it gets cold, but generally it's pretty comfortable. In July/August there is air conditioning.

A beautiful spring. I love the green, the plants, flowers, etc...

People are friendly here. We welcome folks from anywhere.

I live in the Triangle - it's not too big nor overly dense. There's plenty to do without having too much traffic or having to drive too far.

The nearby area offers plenty of weekend trips. The beach is 3 or so hours, the mountains are 3 or so hours, DC is 4. If I wanted to, I could go to Atlanta in 6. Savannah/Charleston is reasonable to drive in a day too.

Good air transport. I can hop a plane at RDU and be anywhere on the eastern half of the US in a couple of hours.

In the Triangle, our we've got different kinds of towns and cities in a fairly close area. You want country - you can do that. You want a fairly liberal, diverse town - move to Durham. You want a college town - Chapel Hill. You want a more traditional southern city - I think Raleigh might work. You can pick what you want.

I believe the point was that all of the reasons you gave are not only not unique to NC, they apply to where the OP already is right now--so he could stay where he is for the same (or better) amenities based on your list.

Bingo! Can't rep you again, yet.

Well apparently he isn't looking to stay where he is now. But I understand what y'all are saying.
