Who's in or near Chorlotte NC ?

I'm thinking about taking a job in Charlotte. I have some guys there that I grew up with who cant seem to say anything bad about the area. Its growing and it seems nice.

Any events or clubs down that way?

my dad is from monroe (30 min outside of charlotte) and my grandma still lives up that way. I like it up there. I'd think it a nice change of pace from New York for ya. It's growing and fast (kinda of the new banking center for the southeast I understand). I only see it growing and being more job opportunities for ya in the next few years.

I am going up there in a month or so to visit family.

Well I was born and raised in CT then moved to Hickory, NC (about 45min from Charlotte). I lived there for just over 4 years. Everything was great except winter. Too cold to do anything and also not not cold enough to do anything. What I mean is during the rest of the year there was golf, camping, boating, motorcycle riding, etc then came December. Too cold to do much of anything and since they don't get snow I couldn't exactly jump on my snowmobile. Best thing about NC was meeting my wife . We now live back in CT. Still visit her parents about 5-6 times per year and they live right on Lake Norman. To me it falls under the "great place to visit but wouldn't wanna live there" motto.

I've applied for Charlotte-Mecklenburg P.D. I'm just not 100% sure I want to move again.

rpidelt, I'm from CT also and stationed south of Raliegh. It takes some getting used to (hog brains and eggs) we might retire here and go north for a few months a year. In N.C. I can golf 10 or 11 months out of the year and the fishing off coast is fantastic.

I see that this post is kind of old but I thought I would offer some input. Me and my family moved down here 5 years ago from Syracuse and it is growing on us. We live about 30 miles north of Charlotte. The weather is definately a lot better. Its funny when they get 1/2 an inch of snow and the state is closed down for a week. 1/2 a yard and maybe NY schools will close. Personally I'd stay away from the Charlotte/Mecklenburg area. Its definately a lot busier than Syracuse. Winston-Salem, Statesville, and Hickory are more like Syracuse and you only have to drive about 15 minutes to be in the farm country.
