My wife and I are in our mid-thirties with two young children. We currently live in Redlands, California and are looking to make the big move to North Carolina. We have a townhouse in California and with the appreciation it looks like we could purchase a really wonderful property in Charlotte or Raleigh.

Our biggest concerns are a wonderful school district for our children (13 and 5), a great job market (healthcare industry and graphic design industry), and diversity. My wife and I are an interracial couple and moving from liberal California does have some concerns.

Any advice or insight that anyone has about these areas would be wonderful.

I'm not sure what aspect of diversity you're asking about but if you mean racial:

Charlotte - 55% White & 33% Black & 7% Hispanic

Raleigh - 60% White & 28% Black & 7% Hispanic

Redlands, CA - 63% White & 4% Black & 24% Hispanic

2004 Election Results

Mecklenburg County - 51% Kerry

Wake County - 51% Bush

San Bernardino County - 56% Bush
