I love Charlotte! There is a growing diversity in the city with many people from all over the country moving here. It is a rapidly growing city with new restaurants, bars, parks, jobs and etc being added everyday. On any night of the week you can find an event happening indoors or outdoors all over charlotte. The nighttime scene is vibrant and offers a huge variety of music venues and originality. One thing I would like to see change is the safety of the neighborhoods around charlotte. One minute you are in a safe and quiet neighborhood and then a block later you are in an unsafe part of town. So it’s hard to feel safe in many places of charlotte, especially at night. And the other change I would make it the outrageous traffic. Road construction is constant here and it can be very hard to drive anywhere in a timely manner here.

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 like everything Charlotte has to offer! There are wonderful restaurants, breweries, shopping, shows, and opportunities! The traffic is tolerable and housing market is doing well. The only downfall of Charlotte to me, which is nothing city/people related, is it not have a body of water nearby. The closest is Lake Norman which is about an hour north. However, it is very convenient having an airport and major interstates.
