On a 1-5 scale:

Friendliness: 5
Cleanliness: 5
Weather: 5 in the winter; 4 in the summer
Southern culture: What exactly does this mean???
Food: 4
Schools: 4 You can get a great education in CMS, but you have to do your homework!

LOVE IT. Been here 5 years and want to live nowhere else. We do live in Fort mill for the better public schools but we are 20 min from Charlotte.

Southern Culture - southern food, southern accents, southern feel, and southern hospitality.

I'll second FeltDesigner's ratings but would put cleanliness at 4 or maybe even 3. Charlotte does have a lot of dumpy areas with trash on the sides of the road and weeds that could stand some trimming. There are neighborhoods with a lot of rentals in them that need window trims painted and gutters blown. Charlotte is not a "Cary" with a wide middle class that looks after every corner of the city.

If you spend all your time in South CLT and uptown then you could think it scores a 5.

Mostly agreeing with Felt

scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being great and 1 being poor

1: Friendliness. 4 out of 5 (if that kind of thing is important to you. It is not to me)
2: Cleanliness. 4 out of 5
3: Weather. 5 out of 5
4: Southerness. 3 out of 5
6: food. 2 out of 5 (everything is a chain. It is very difficult to find mom & pop places that are not pricey or anywhere other than S. Charlotte)
7: schools. no comment. I hear CMS is horrible but I have no kids.
8: southern culture. 3 out of 5

The weather is the #1 reason that I live here.

The weather is the #1 reason that I live here.
Lets get an ex-Charlotters opinion shall we

1. 3 no less or more friendly than anywhere else

2. 5 cleanest city (proper) I have ever seen

3. 2 weather this year seems to have been great but most years ...yuch. No snow in winter another minus

4. 4 found it very southern if you like that sort of thing you'll love it

5. 3 schools very average but ranging from very good to very poor..like most places

6. southern culture 3 ?

Edit: Food! 3 some good local places..
