If you lived in north carolina first and then georgia. Is there a difference in the heat? Is it hotter in georgia then north carolina? where did you live in both places? I like both north carolina and georgia. I am looking into moving to either cartersville ga , dallas ga or raleigh, burlington, mooresville, nc.
when I visited sveral times both places seem hot in the summer. I am wondering if theres a difference in the weather? Does anyone prefer a certain state or area over the other?

We used to live in Franklin, NC for about 1.5 yrs, and it is much hotter in GA than NC. However, FRanklin is in the mountains, which seemed to make it a little cooler than the rest of the state...
Even though I live in GA, I very much prefer NC over GA anyday

I lived in Galax, Va, which is a small town on the Va / NC Border. The town is about an hour from Winston Salem. It is truly hotter in Ga. The humidity is nasty. You will be very happy with the job market in either place, however, the Atlanta area can be a little over the top with the traffic, crime, and congestion. The thing that I like about NC is the fact that you can still be away from EVERYTHING in a matter of 20-30 minutes.

Smile NC Vs Ga

Love several areas in both but it is hot in all the places you mentioned in the summer. Lived in Burlington for awhile and it is a great town...lots of restaurants, shopping, etc. and the housing market was great at that time (four years ago) but friends who still live there say it is really growing. Winters are very mild there and Spring is beautiful! I live in Blowing Rock, a beautiful section of NC with very cool summers (it is 55 here today) that also offers great medical care, App. State University, wonderful scenery and great people but the Winters can be brutal at times and housing is expensive! We have looked at several areas of Ga and NC and haven't found just the right place for our old(er) age. My husband needs a milder climate and we have several pets so our needs may not be the same as yours. Have you looked around Winston? Better job market, reasonable housing and milder Winters. Good luck!

The previous posters that moved from NC to GA lived in places in or near the NC mountains which are going to be cooler due to their higher elevation. I wouldn't necessarily say places like Fayetteville, NC, Lumberton, NC and Wilmington, NC are any cooler or hotter than places such as Macon, GA, Columbus, GA, Athens, GA or Augusta, GA.

My point is that unless you're up in the North Carolina mountains, most of North Carolina's weather is very similar to Georgia's weather. With only slight differences.
