Hello-My wife and I are relocating to the Charlotte area hopefully by September. We are in our late 20's w/ no children (yet). I have been reading most of the posts in reference to relocating and I have a few questions.
My wife will be working in Rock Hill, while I will be working in Gastonia. Ideally, we would prefer to be in SC. Where is a good "halfway point" to look for apartments? We will be renting initially to get a feel for the areas.
We would prefer to be within a reasonable distance of parks, jogging trails, etc...
How about the nightlife? It seems that after reading posts the city shuts down @ night. We don't base our lives on nightlife, however, now and then it is nice to go out and enjoy a good evening of music, dancing, etc...Are the SC areas surrounding Charlotte (Fort Mill/Tega Cay) descent size cities? By that I mean, do they have a downtown or is it more of a neighborhood city? Do people have to go to "uptown" to do everything? Also, we are big boaters and would love to live on a lake eventually. What price would we have to pay for lakefront or lake access property?
Thank you in advance for all of your advice.
