We are planning on moving from Michigan to one of the Carolina's.
Looking for a town with a good neighborhood ( our children are 9&7) so we are hoping to find a place with lots of other kids. Good schools, good shopping and hospitals. Whats the weather like? winter and summer?
We are looking at 35 today and 10 by Sat. burr. I am tired of the cold and snow! Any suggestions are welcomed!

Move to Charlotte, NC but live in Fort Mill, SC (suburb). They have the #1 rated school district in SC for like 10-15 years straight. Living in Fort Mill you could find many job opportunities in Charlotte. Uptown Charlotte from Fort Mill is about 30 min. Probably 20 minutes to Ballantyne area.

Charlotte is WONDERFUL!

Good LUCK!

It is warmer here in Charlotte. 21 this morning though.

I was born and raised in northern Michigan, graduated from MSU, and moved in NC in 1993. Sometimes we miss Michigan (believe it or not) but really like it here. We live near downtown Raleigh but have friends who live all over the Raleigh-Durham area and everyone seems to like their location. I know that many areas around Raleigh such as Holly Springs, Clayton, and Apex are very family-friendly locations. Wake County has good schools and lots of good healthcare. Yes, it's hot and humid in August but if you can survive that month (and it's not really hard to do) you will be handsomely rewarded with a beautiful fall, winter, and spring. Besides that, I was in Michigan in August of this past year and it was hot there too - 95 degrees there felt the same as 95 degrees here.

In North Carolina, one's seasonal climate pretty much depends on the region within the state, Mountain, Piedmont or Coastal. There's a big difference because of the elevation range, sea level to almost 7,000 feet.

Normal averages for selected areas around the state:
