Whats it Like Living In Charlotte | Lake Norman?

by Susan Johnson Team

Charlotte Lake Norman Lifestyle
Charlotte NC

We often get asked, What's it like living in Charlotte area?

It is very easy to live in Charlotte North Carolina. The City itself is very pretty and has lots of green areas for walking, cycling, picnicking or playing ball. It appeals to all people through all walks of life. The short winters and the long warm summers that are fairly humid, with sometimes extremely hot temperatures and humidity in July and August, are something the people from Charlotte embrace. We can bear living indoors or doing things early in the day in July and August and we will reappear in the evening in time to go outdoors and watch a concert or a movie in the park, or even to go out for a walk. Lake Norman and Lake Wylie are wonderful sources or recreation and almost everyone has some form of boat, paddle ski, kayak, stand-up paddle board or jetski. We love the summer and we find any excuse to get out there and play on the lakes.

The downtown or uptown as it's sometimes referred to is a maze of modern and old architecture and at street level you will find lovely outdoor seating areas, incredible art and culture exhibits and always interesting people. There is a whole array of wonderful restaurants with cuisine to suit every taste. Visit the 7th street market where there are several food vendors surrounding a dining hall creating an electric atmosphere.The nightlife is spectacular with superb theaters, tapas bars, nightclubs and so much more. There are also a number of kiddies entertainment venues and places to visit, museums and so much more. The City of Charlotte NC offers a wealth of cultural and sports events and the locals are die hard fans of the Panthers and the Hornets and we welcome the competition anytime.

Charlotte has a favorable business environment, with the financial industry amongst the top employers in the Carolinas. There are many job opportunities and every where you look there are "Hiring Now" signs in storefronts, online and more. The lower cost of living, a buoyant well rounded real estate market together with a fantastic lifestyle, make Charlotte a worthy choice to call home. Charlotte Douglas International Airport is one of the biggest airline hubs in the USA with more than 700 flights a day and that makes it easy for business travel too.

The lovely thing about the Carolina's is that people are so friendly. Many people that live in Charlotte do come from other states and because of that people are more accommodating and more likely to talk to you. Public transport to and from the city is improving all the time and with the light rail extensions and the wonderful bus service, if you live within the parameters of these services, it's relatively easy and inexpensive to get around. Car travel from the Lake Norman area is at its worst right now with a huge road improvement project underway, but the good thing is that will improve in years to come.

The City is relatively safe, however, like any big city, there is petty criminal activity. The idea is to be cautious as you would in any big city, but you certainly don't have to peer over your shoulder or fear for your life.

Charlotte NC is situated almost equidistant from the beaches , the mountains and Yadkin Valley Vineyards. We love the beach and we spend at least one week each summer getting our toes wet and enjoying the sun and the sand. Those non beach people will head to the coolness of the mountains and hide away in mountain cabins and enjoying clear mountain streams. The Carolinas are an oasis for everyone.

So when are you moving to the Carolinas then? Susan Johnson and her team are standing by to help you make your move. "We love our life here Charlotte and we welcome you to come and join us."
