    Make sure you call it Raleigh-Durham. Locals love that.

    Been here 2 months, don’t see whats so great about Raleigh.

    Edit: There’s some solid spots here and I’m new. Don’t listen to me.

    I'm jealous, I would kill to move back to Raleigh. Weren't you in Jax the past few years? Wait until the fall.

    Yes. Yea that’s honestly what excites me the most about living here. I work in North Hills area and it’s nice. I was trying to get to Lake Norman and this is a pit stop.

    I wish I hadn’t found a place in Cary. Should’ve gone closer to downtown Raleigh. I think it’s jaded my perception.

    Everything east of Raleigh before Wilmington is bad. It’s actually sad to drive through.

    My niece is in Fayetteville bc her stepdad is military. I refuse to go there anymore. We meet half way or she stays there.

    We just sold our house in Huntersville and bought in Mooresville about two months ago. We made a really nice profit in a little less than 3 years in Huntersville, the market there is insane. We sold our house for full ask in 2 days. Unfortunate timing to buy again because I just accepted a relocation to Tucson but we'll come back in a few years and settle in Mooresville or east Davidson.

    Those Iredell taxes vs Mecklenburg? :gfa:

    Yea, I’m in Cary for another 9 months and I’ll be headed to Mooresville. It’s oddly still very affordable. My uncle and aunt have lived on the lake since I was born. No one was on the lake last week for the 4th. Was awesome.

    It was oddly quiet. We were out on the 3rd and we had the lake to ourselves. Iredell is still affordable, people list at absurd prices thinking they can get Cornelius/Huntersville prices but we low balled the shit out of the people we bought from and just stood firm and they caved.

    Yea you can get a whole lot of house for cheap near the lake. House across the street from my uncles sold for like $350K and they were asking $450k. House had been totally redone, salt water pool, outdoor kitchen, backs up to the golf course, whole deal. If I could have found a job in Charlotte in time we’d have bought it immediately.

    That's silly. Wrightsville is awesome but it can be a zoo in the summertime. NC has a bunch of good beaches, all depends on what you're looking for.

    Salem Street Pub. We go downtown Apex a good bit. That strip is pretty cool.

    Is Anna’s pizzeria good?

    Tangman Well-Known Member

    It's not bad. Namoli's is the best pizza in Apex but it's more of a takeout place. Daniel's on 55 is a really good Italian place and does pizza, too.

    Also check out Provincial and Scratch in that DT area if you haven't yet. Fresh ice cream is great too.

    Yea we passed Daniel’s yesterday and it was slammed. I looked them up and that deal they have on carry out pizza seemed like a steal.

    Scratch was terrible when we went. It’s expensive too which compounded things. Maybe it was just a bad day for them but it was a huge letdown bc everyone told us it was good.

    Provincial is on the list.

    To be fair, I've only had beers at Scratch so far but my friends liked their food. Hope it was just an off night, that location has been cursed, probably been 5 different restaurants in the last 3 years.

    I went to Wrightsville every summer from 1989 to 2005. Went back a couple years ago and was a bit disappointed with how big it has gotten, but it's still a great spot.

    I did an 8 month engagement in Raleigh. It was ok but nothing special.

    I am totally biased to Greenville, Sc though as its where my wife and I will be moving to settle down in the next 2-5 years.
