Hello All!

My husband and I are planning to relocate to NC from Wisconsin. We are 40ish with no children at home. My husband can transfer to pretty much any area of the state, but I am an employee of the VA as a certified pharmacy technician, and my choices are limited to either the Salisbury or Durham areas. Not interested in the Fayetteville area.

We currently live in a small town about 30 minutes to Madison and my commute is about 35 miles one way. I don't mind a commute, but HATE bad traffic. We would prefer a "country" feel, as we are not big city people.

Also, good heathcare is a must.

Any and all suggestions would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

One of my neighbors deals with the VA & he prefers the Asheville facility to the Salisbury facility. He has also gone to a facility in Rutherford County for limited purposes.

you can certainly get the country feel in areas around Salisbury...and Salisbury is really centrally located to Winston-Salem, Greensboro, and to Charlotte. I would steer clear of Durham.

Any insight as to Salisbury itself? I have not heard many good things about the area. I am open minded, and would just want to be in a safe area.

There is a VA outpatient clinic in Charlotte that has a pharmacy. The good thing about the clinic is that it has great hours. No holidays, no overnights. It is a nice facility. There are plenty of areas within 20 minutes that fit your criteria. Look outside the 485 loop (Harrisburg area is great place to start.)

I personally wouldn't want to live in Salisbury, nothing about it appeals to me. However, you could live in Mooresville and commute to Salisbury on 150. It's not interstate and I work with several people that do that daily with no major concerns or issues.

Good call on Fayetteville.

That was too funny, and GROSS! If there is ANY truth to that, NO, NO, NO.
