I was wondering if there's anyone familiar with the Ballantyne/south end of Charlotte area, which seems to be a hopping place to live and with lots of shopping near by, if you could compare it to a similar place in Raleigh - where would that place be?

I have friends who live in the Ballantyne area of Charlotte. I would compare it to the Brier Creek, Leesville Road, and Wakefield areas of North Raleigh. The Ballantyne area also reminds me a lot of parts of Cary as well as parts of Southwest Durham near Southpoint Mall.

All great places to live IMO.

I used to live in that area of Charlotte with a Target and Harris Teeter about a mile away in two directions. Although you won't find anything quite like it in Raleigh, I would say Cary is worth a look for you. It has the sidewalks throughout like South Charlotte and lots of shopping. I always thought South Charlotte had a diverse base of families and single or commited no kids young professionals. Cary doesn't seem to have the draw of singletons that South Charlotte does. If you are single and are looking for more of the YP community that South Charlotte offered then I would say Brier Creek.

I would consider Wakefield, as mentioned above, to be more like Highland Creek in North Charlotte. It is a beautiful community though.
