The Pros and Cons to Living in Charlotte North Carolina

Charlotte North Carolina is one of the fastest growing cities in the United States. With around 900,000 residents Charlotte is definitely a smaller city. However the Charlotte Metro area in around 2.5 million people. This area includes Charlotte and all of its suburbs and cities around it. What are the pros and cons to living in Charlotte North Carolina?

Charlotte has a great location and is centrally located down the east coast. I grew up in Upstate NY and it was cold and snowy there. My wife grew up in South Florida and it was too hot and humid and the daily afternoon thunderstorms get old quick.


You have all 4 seasons in Charlotte but don’t have the extreme winters like the North and it’s not quite as hot as Florida either. You also get to enjoy the leaves changing color, the occasional snowstorm, and hot humid summers to enjoy the lake or pool. The one thing about this area is that you could also experience all 4 seasons in one week.

If you are a big sports fan there are several professional sports teams in town. The Carolina Panthers play at Bank of America Stadium located in Uptown Charlotte. Most cities would refer to this area as downtown, but in Charlotte it is Uptown.The Charlotte Hornets play at Spectrum Center. Newly built BB&T Ballpark is also located in Uptown Charlotte and features a beautiful view of the city skyline and is home to the minor leagueAAA tam of the Chicago White Sox.

Rapid growth brings many great benefits as well as things that people dislike.


Charlotte has a variety of different neighborhoods to fit the interests and needs of everyone. There a little something for everyone to enjoy.
