I've lived here for almost all my life and it's really nice! The city is very diverse and affordable, with a lot of cool stuff to do! The Imaginon Children's Library is an amazing place for children, especially. Food is always top notch here as well; The Midwood BBQ, especially, stands out. Vietnamese food is also pretty good around here; a little outside of the city itself is an AMAZING Vietnamese place called Doan's, on South Boulevard. Their pho is so good. In Charlotte, however, there is one shooting every night in the city. That's the worst thing about it, though. Overall, I really recommend it here!

I live in Greensboro but am from Winston - Salem and Charlotte is about three times larger than Greensboro and Winston - Salem. Charlotte is a wonderful city with lots if entertainment, parks, shopping, and city life. I feel as when I go to Greensboro and Winston - Salem that those are the other two cities that are similar to Charlotte. The traffic in Charlotte terrible but not like Atlanta and Washington D.C. are. Sometimes I think that Charlotte and Greensboro are the only two cities with the legit things. Winston - Salem in my opinion is a many Charlotte with the downtown, shopping, traffic, and population growth. I love Charlotte when I visit and hope to come back!
I recently moved to Charlotte after living in Texas for almost fourteen years, and it has been an amazing experience! Charlotte is such a welcoming and vibrant city that is both beautiful and interesting, and it has been amazing to explore uptown and around my neighborhood. The parks and public green spaces create a healthy environment, and the people here are all so friendly!
