Whistle-Stop (3/14)



  1. I can't tell you much about Cary or Wilmington, but I can about Charlotte... I used to live in York, SC. It's awesome! (it has small town feel). It is right outside of Charlotte. Cary is almost always ranked as one of the safest cities in America. It is expensive though. Wilmington has the beach, so... yeah... I love the beach . But it is kinda a party city with UNC-W (University of North Carolina at Wilmington) and all. So it has a high crime rate.... I like Charlotte, but it wouldn't really give you a small town feel. It has a high crime rate like most urban areas. There are a lot of nice restaurants though. People complain about the schools a lot. There are about 17 or 18 high schools and about 5 are schools where you WANT to send your kid... only a few are terrible though.... But overall, I wouldn't give Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools the best grade. The school cops use taser guns like it's a game, and there is a big case of "white-flight". The average high school in Charlotte scored lower than the average of North Carolina. But there were two schools that were higher than the average-- Myers Park and Providence. There are a ton of malls (Eastland, South Park, Carolina Place, Freedom, Northlake, Concord Mills, *new* Bridges at Mint Hill). It's a very diverse city (about 55% white, 35%black, 10% hispanic). In some places you don't have to speak English to live there. It's not very expensive... but in some places it is (south park, ballantyne), and some places it isn't (East CLT, West CLT). So the only things that you really need to look out for in Charlotte are the schools and crime.... But it's a great place to live
