Granted, every city has things they try to hide, like poverty and homeless populations, but they say by 2024 or so, it will be eradicated, we’ll see. Here’s some trivia for you. Did you know that Charlotte, North Carolina has grown over 63 percent since the start of the century? People continue moving to Charlotte, NC, and for good reason. It is a beautiful city with a strong economy and a lot of great things to do for the whole family. It also has a great job market for almost every career choice. Charlotte has grown exponentially and become a wonderful place to grow and raise a family. It is one of the fastest-growing cities in all the United States, with hundreds of thousands of people chosen to move here.

The cost of living in Charlotte is below the national average. The cost of housing is also below the national average by 4 percent, making it super easy and cost effective to rent or buy property. You might be surprised to hear that Charlotte is a great sports city. There are a variety of professional sports and teams like The Hornets, The Panthers and many more.  If you love the arts, there is the SouthEnd Gallery Crawl to look forward to. This even happens on the first Friday of every month and is a great way to discover some great new artists from the Charlotte area.

There are also great choices when it comes to the dining and cuisine in the city. This is especially true if you enjoy fried foods and mom-and-pop stores. Charlotte has both of these in large numbers.  There’s no question about it. Charlotte also has some awesome weather. This is especially true if you’ve lived somewhere with frigid winters. The summers can get a bit warm but when that happens it’s just a short journey to visit the beautiful mountains and beaches, and what’s better than that?
