Hey guys

I'm thinking about relocating to North Carolina, I'm just wondering which city would be better. CHARLOTTE, DURHAM OR RALEIGH ?

I'm a nurse, so finding jobs shouldn't be too hard. But an area which has great schools, nice night scene, good restaurants, low crime rates, not to expensive....etc

I just need a little help from you guys, thanks in advance....all opinions are appreciated !

Given your criteria and your profession, I'd say that the Triangle (Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill) is probably a better fit.

I would recommend Charlotte, especially if you are over 25. To me, the Triangle has that college town feel and Charlotte feels more urban and sophisticated. Both are fine metro areas, I just prefer Charlotte more.

For your type of work, I'd say Raleigh/Durham. They have the top rated hospitals in the state.

But if you're looking for a good nightlife scene and good restaurants, I'd say Charlotte 100%.

If I worked in the medical profession.I would favor the Triangle area. Looking for great restaurants? I'd look no further than the tastiest town in the South.

You asked about Charlotte's nightlife in another thread and nobody answered. I decided to answer your question here.


Restaurants and Nightlife in Charlotte, NC - YouTube

In my honest opinion, it would be wise to visit the areas you're interested in first. After a visit, you might discover that you HATE the entire state of NC and all cities within the state.

With that said, I'd highly suggest that you look into Atlanta, Charleston, South Florida, Tampa, and the Orlando area. IMO, these areas are all interesting and fun places with good jobs, decent nightlife, and great people.
