I also know some people who were from NJ and left here because they said it was getting "nuts", they moved to Cary, NC.

People moving to Cary NC are following the "it" trend. In a decade or so it will be the next "place that is becoming crazy." Martha Stewart was hocking homes there as the next Mayberry.

But, visit the North Carolina forums and see how the "locals" appreciate all the people moving in and out who can't seem to find contentment anywhere else.

At least south Florida has ALWAYS been an extension of New York and the tri-state area.

These people I mentioned, left back in 2000 for Cary, NC. If they waited a few years they could have sold their homes here for double to triple what they paid, well I know of one that did leave in 2004 that made out great.

Many left here for work in the RTP area, which was then and still is more than you can find here. I know a few left the area after the recession hit a lot of places hard there.

The NY/NJ influence in NC is very evident, Wilmington, NC is very heavily populated by the same geographic.

Your certainly right about that...I have to tell you I know quite a few people that are trying to get back to florida from the area we lived in in NC one of them told us after 3 years she finally realized how much she didnt like the people there and it wasn't all it was cracked up to be...

Everyone I knew of that moved to NC from the North left, the ones that moved here first then there have stayed or moved on elsewhere due to jobs. The ones that moved there first from the North, said they did not feel welcome and were referred to as Yankees, this is going back a while maybe times have changed? South Florida is different, no place else like it that's why it's hard to leave here if you like it more than you hate it.

No THX it hasnt changed...For us south florida feels like home NC did the 1st year because we were with former Nyker's but once everyone gets settled in you get to see people's true colors and although south Florida can be phony, I find Charlotte to be a lot worse and very materialistic there too...
