There’s always the discussion of moving here. I thought it would be interesting to look at the opposite. Are you looking at relocating out of NC and where are you headed? Have you secured a job already? For those of you who moved already, do you miss anything about NC? What do you like about where you live now?

I miss all the BBQ. And just Charlotte was home but, it’s not too far away and why spend time missing a place instead of enjoying your new home?


In DC I like how community oriented it is. It’s like a small town but for blocks and blocks in all directions. It’s very clean, European vibe, sooooo much pedestrian infrastructure and greenways and local shops and stuff. I love how community oriented it is. And I’m 3 blocks away from the national mall so I feel very lucky to walk/run it nightly. Also, it’s pretty cool to do your normal errands and drive past the White House or US Capitol.

I want and plan to move to VA where the grandkids are. I won’t miss anything. I’m ready for snow and ice when it comes a few hundred miles north.

We moved to NC 7 years ago for a job transfer for my husband. It has never "clicked" for me. As soon as my youngest graduates high school (in 6 years), we will be moving. I would have moved way before this, but I didn't want to keep moving the kids, and my husband's job is too good. We plan to move to Florida but will spend summers in the Northeast. We will stop
working at that point.

Moved to Phoenix in 2013. Miss all the fried food, but definitely not the weather. What I like about Phoenix are the festivals, hiking, drives to California and Vegas.

I actually made the move out of NC (Raleigh area) to Atlanta 5 years ago. Lately though, I have been considering moving back to the triangle area.

Born and raised in the Raleigh area. I didn't hate it, but just wanted a change. I moved to Missouri in 2011 for grad school. I liked the area and found a job, so I ended up living there for 5 years. Definitely preferred the weather over NC weather. Colder winters, but more mild summers.

Next, I did an assistantship in Iowa for 6mo. It was a flatter, more boring version of Missouri, but with worse weather.

Then I changed careers and landed a job in DFW, Texas. Hated it! Absolutely no scenery, awful traffic, terrible drivers, terrible heat for 9mo out of the year. All of the negatives of the suburbs and all of the negatives of the city with few of the positives. I lasted 10mo before I moved out.

I'm in Chicago now and really enjoy living here. We have two airports, great food, and tons to see and do. But the winter weather is brutal and real estate prices and taxes are high, so I'm not sure I could live here long term. I'm hoping I can settle down permanently in Missouri if I can find a job there.
