    Or you can head a little further south down providence road and live with Louis.

    If you'd rather live further from uptown, and more importantly, outside of Meck county, look at Marvin/Weddington/Waxhaw or Indian Land, SC. $850k will get you a very nice house and lot there. Generally very good schools. I think Marvin Ridge and Weddington were the top 2 Charlotte area HS in the last ranking.

    When you say, importantly out of Meck county, I assume this is referring to taxes?

    Also, I think we’ll want to live closer to where the good restaurants, shopping, walkable areas are. As someone mentioned before, there will be a degree of culture shock coming from Manhattan so we still want to be close enough to city life that it’s not a big hassle to go out at night, etc. Not too concerned with maximizing the size of house I get.

    Yeah, taxes and schools. CMS is one of the largest school systems in the whole country. There have been a ton of issues with moving kids to different schools and forced busing discussions and things like that.

    OTOH, you're right that coming from Manhattan and wanting to be close to those things means you should be in town. Cotswold, Dilworth, Elizabeth, somewhere like that. I think South End would be too young/apartment like for you. South Park is very car oriented right now but they're working on building a nice big walkable loop over the next several years.

    Yes, that is the biggest downside. Luckily the wife and I work in South Park so not too bad for us.

    good call on Elizabeth. Would definitely recommend there, as well as Plaza-Midwood.

    Not sure of your political proclivities, or if it matters, but Trump won Union County by 25 points.

    Haha it’s all good. I’m sure there’s nice people everywhere but given we know nobody in town, would like to live in an area where at least we have a better chance of making friends we would actually get along with.

    Based on what you’ve said, I’d say you’re looking Cotswold or Elizabeth. If you like gentrification and sending your children to private schools, Noda or Plaza Midwood.

    Just south of South Park isn’t bad either, but is closer to 15-20 minutes from uptown.

    When we lived closer to there, we would go to Cajun Yard Dog all the time. Not sure if it is still as good. New South Kitchen as well. I think it was the same owner for both.
