It's fine to disagree, but have you ever lived in New England? If not you have no idea my reference point to the OP.

The Triad is the closest I have found to our local landscape here and for me was not as much of a suburban boomtown endless subdivisions shock as the Triangle and Charlotte was/is. I think both are fine cities, but if said person is more comfortable in a place like Manchester NH, the Triad is more on pace IMO.

We have a very unique way of living and landscape in New England. If you've never experienced it, it's hard to explain.

No I haven't been to NH and not trying to compare it to anything. But I will say northern Durham and Orange counties are very rural with pretty rolling hills and trees and lots of farm land. Nothing suburban or sprawl about it...

And the Triangle is not a city. There are several cities and towns in the area, all VERY different. I think you are thinking of the suburban sprawl areas like Raleigh, Cary, and SW Durham.

Agree 100%. Although Charlotte is much larger than a town.

The Triad is a great place though.

Why do you agree that someone from rural, Northern New England would be "100%" better off in Charlotte than other places in NC?

I would suggest Kernersville
it is called the heart of the triad and is a fairly large subarb.
15 minutes drive can take you to any of the triad cities, and 5 minutes at the most to shopping and dining.

Mebane is awesome. One of the best values in the state as far as home prices go.
