Unhappy Living in NC vs SC - no kids , and renting

Hi everyone,
I am making a move from CT to the Carolina's in a few months. My work will be in Lancaster SC. I am 30, married, no kids and planning to rent. My contract is for 3 years. I've been reading the threads and there are many recommendations about this same question, but they involve taxes (ill be renting), and schools (I have no kids). I've thought about living in Charlotte, but it's quite a drive to Lancaster. Are there any recommendations or things I should know about living in each state/area. I can live in just about any community since finances are not an issue. I just don't know where to look and what the communities are like. I was given a tour of lancaster itself but its too slow paced for a young couple to live in. Your thoughts and suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Jad

Check out Indian Land and Fort Mill, the areas close to Hwy 521 which gives you a direct route south into Lancaster and north into Charlotte.

You will have to register your vehicle unless your company is providing you are car. If you own a car there will be annual property tax for the car. In addition since you will be working in South Carolina, SC taxes will be deducted from your check. It makes it easier to just file Federal and SC on April 15. If you are a resident of NC you would have to file in that state too. I don't know how that is handled. I live in SC and at one time did work in NC and I had to file SC and NC. Most times it ended up just sending SC a copy of my NC filing.
