I am from NYC and he's from South Carolina. He is currently in the Navy and will be out in Feb. 2014. We are different in the sense that I am a big city girl and he's a big country boy. We are looking to move to Charlotte, NC and I admit, I'm a little scared but willing to take the risk. He easily adapts to any type of environment so he is willing to move to where I would feel most comfortable, which he thinks Charlotte would be a great location for the both of us. We are both fun and young at heart and I would love a place where restaurants, bars, shopping malls, etc. are near by. Which part of Charlotte would you suggest for a couple like us to move to?<br \><br \>7 replies Sat, 30 Nov 2013 17:31:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Where-in-Charlotte-is-the-best-place-to-live-for-a-couple-in-their-mid-20%27s/520441/ 2013-11-30T17:31:00Z What is the best neighborhood and public school district in Charlotte NC? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-is-the-best-neighborhood-and-public-school-district-in-Charlotte-NC/350287/ 3 replies Tue, 18 May 2010 01:44:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-is-the-best-neighborhood-and-public-school-district-in-Charlotte-NC/350287/ 2010-05-18T01:44:00Z How can I find a home in a good school system?
