HeadingWhy You Should Move To Charlotte – Cross Country Moving Company Can Think of Several Reasons

Charlotte, NC is a heaven on Earth. It is a mixture of both urban and rural styles, with a low-cost high-quality living, a mild climate, and a varied cultural background. Who wouldn’t want to live there? Without further ado, here are the reasons why we believe you should be moving to Charlotte as soon as possible.

Charlotte’s Climate is Smooth and SunnyHeading

Charlotte has a humid subtropical climate. It has four distinct seasons. If you are an outdoor person, you should definitely consider relocating here – Charlotte has over two hundred sunny days a year on average. Rainfall is more or less distributed evenly throughout the year, and while the winters might be sharp, they are relatively short. Make sure you don’t forget either your bathing suit or your skis once you start packing.

The Wild Side of CharlotteHeading

Back in 2013, Charlotte was named one of the best cities for urban forests. This is much owing to the fact that the city has a strict ordinance when it comes to protecting its trees and nature. While much of Charlotte’s beautiful nature can be seen on the streets and in the parks, in order to take a closer look at some of the rarer species, you might want to visit the UNC Charlotte Botanical Garden . It is located on the University of North Carolina Charlotte campus. It also hosts numerous annual and special events as well as lectures. Another attraction for nature lovers should definitely be the Charlotte Nature Museum , which offers classes, camps, and field trips, aside from its regular exhibitions.
Aside from plants, Charlotte can boast beautiful mountains just outside the city borders, as well as the beach. Even without leaving the city, you can get plenty of outdoor activity in Charlotte. For all Charlotte’s active residents, there is the U. S. National Whitewater Center , dedicated to promoting the active lifestyle. The company hosts festivals, races, lectures, and all kinds of different events.
If you are moving to Charlotte, you are bound to have a great time.

on your own, but wish to improve your education, there are plenty of possibilities. The University of North Carolina Charlotte  is located here, as well as the Central Piedmont Community College , Charlotte School of Law , Johnson C. Smith University , and Queens University of Charlotte . The city is also home to the second largest school system in North Carolina, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools . There are 164 elementary, middle, and high schools in Charlotte.

HeadingThe Healthcare

The health care in North Carolina is very well developed. While the prices of health insurance might not be super low, you know exactly what you are paying for. Charlotte health care enables eVisits and virtual doctor’s visits at any time of the day or night, urgent care at multiple locations with well-educated and licensed staff, emergency care, as well as urgent and emergency care for children. There are eight hospitals. Charlotte’s emergency medical services are managed by MEDIC, a company that employs around 350 paramedics, EMTs and EMDs. There are several dozen ambulances in the county. Some of the biggest (and possibly the best) health insurance companies in the area include Blue Cross and Blue Shield , Aetna , and Cigna . 

HeadingCharlotte Has Several Great Neighborhoods

As we have previously mentioned, costs of living in Charlotte are pretty low. This also means that finding accommodation at lower prices is not that challenging. Whether you are looking for a state-of-the-art condo, a bungalow, or a traditional house, Charlotte has it all. However, before you start buying moving boxes, look into Charlotte’s numerous neighborhoods. Here is a list of some of them which you might find interesting:
- Uptown – a great pedestrian area, several sports stadiums, numerous bars and cafes, theaters; a loud neighborhood for the young and energized.
- Eastover – believed to be the most “livable” neighborhood in the whole North Carolina. Low crime rate, very high average income, but higher living costs as well.
- Commonwealth – this neighborhood has a 100% high-school graduation rate, so if you are moving here with your family, keep that in mind. The average home price here revolves around $300,000, while the cost of living is only slightly higher than in the rest of Charlotte.
- Barclay Downs – a very high high-school graduation rate, and almost double the average income of the rest of the Charlotte. However, an average home usually costs around $490,000, and the costs of living are a little higher.
- Wessex Square – this is a very affordable area, with an average home priced at $250,000, and an average income almost 70 per cent higher than in the rest of the city. However, costs of living (utilities, groceries, etc.) are a little over 40% higher than in the rest of Charlotte.

HeadingCharlotte is the Home of the Arts
