Hillsborough. It's in between Durham and Chapel Hill and not too far from Raleigh. You will be close to Duke and UNC for short commutes, really some of the best healthcare in the world. Here's a forum on Hillsborough: A photo tour of Hillsborough :)
If so, this is actually Fort Mill, South Carolina. This town is one of Metro Charlotte's best kept secret. In Fort Mill, SC, you will enjoy being next door to the Carolina's biggest and best amusement park (Carowinds). You will also escape NC's higher property taxes (SC has cheaper property taxes). The best part about Fort Mill is you would only be 15 minutes away from Charlotte's night life and entertainment. Many people in the Fort Mill area take a quick drive (5-10 minutes) to the I-485 light rail station in Pineville NC and ride the train into Charlotte's uptown for dancing, dinner, and work.
You literally have dozens of small towns within the Metro to choose from. I just think Fort Mill's South Carolina advantage will give you more house for your money. Here is a little more about Metro Charlotte.
Any suggestions on a quaint family town in NC? I am in healthcare and can find a job anywhere. Looking for a town with good high schools and near things for adults to do i.e dinner, dancing, etc.
I suggest that you get all your "ducks in a row" before you take the long trip here sight unseen. Not all healthcare professions are in demand and not all areas of the state are experiencing drastic nursing shortages that can't be filled with our in-state graduates.
To add to mm_mary73, you need to know that a large share of people who lost their jobs when the textile bubble burst around here went into the medical field. Right now, a lot of rural counties outside of the big metropolitan areas have an overabundance of nurses and general practitioners right now, so make sure you're coming down for a surefire job, and not just on speculation.
