That's like asking what the best street is on Long Island.

You need to define "best" (especially as far as $$$$) and define an area. There are kabillions of subdivisions in North Carolina.

Everyone thinks theirs is best because they chose to live in it.

Oh how true.

More details will help narrow down what is best for the OP.

I'm looking for a home in the $400k to 700K range. Must have a community pool, playground, and tennis courts. Low crime and great schools are a must.

Go Google Chapel Hill, Cary, and Apex and related search words. Search through the main real estate web sites, too. You can identify the amenities that you want. Chapel Hill is known for its schools, but its property costs are higher, so you may or may not find the other amenities that you want.

You can find what you want in other areas, too, but that's a start.

Still, you're asking about the best neighborhoods in the whole STATE? Come on, you need to narrow it down more than that!

Are you being tranferred for a job? If so, where? If not, are you sure you will find one (NC is 6th in unemployment right now)? Do you want to be near mountains or beach? Urban, suburban, or rural? City mouse or country mouse? Etc. etc. etc...

You'll have to pick a general area first, as opposed to the whole state, when asking for something like neighborhoods. As someone else said, it's like asking "what's the best street on Long Island?" "BEST" is a very subjective word with many other factors to narrow down first.

I gotcha spidaman. Check out these neighborhoods.

Baxter Village
Welcome to Vermillion. A place where yesterday meets today.
The Palisades | Charlotte Custom Homes, Available Custom Homes
the Sanctuary

I would focus on Ballantyne, Fort Mill/Lake Wylie (SC locations that are only 15 minutes south of uptown Charlotte), and Lake Norman. These areas all have the best subdivisions in the state. You would have to go to Georgia, Florida, or Northern Virginia to find better subdivisions (in the South) than what you would find in metro Charlotte.

Default Subdivisions in North Carolina

Hey Spidaman, check out New Homes in Atlanta, Charleston, Charlotte, Nashville and Raleigh by John Wieland Homes
I am a Realtor in the Charlotte area and this builder is awesome! I live in one of their homes myself and they have a great product and fantastic after sale service and warranty. (something not usual for so many builders) In particular I would look at the Brookhaven Subdivision in South Charlotte. Beautiful homes, great neighborhood, fantastic pool and tennis and clubhouse, walking distance to top rated elementary school and zoned for highly desired middle and high schools, low property taxes. Close to shopping, amenities, easy access to down town, 35 minutes to airport. The price point is right where you want it to be, 400K and up for a nice, nice home.

I am partial to the Charlotte area over Raleigh, obviously. But Charlotte has a lot to offer and most everyone I know that lives here really enjoys it.

Hope this helps.
