Nope, not selling my Buells...

We rent, and our landlord needs to sell the house and I do not want to own any property anywhere in Illinois...

Considering moving to Charlotte NC. We can rent so much house for what we are accustomed to up here! Commentary on the area is much welcomed, and importantly - a good dealership nearby?

East TN or Western NC is pretty awesome too! Knoxville is really coming into its own, lots of nice areas seeing a renaissance- of course the real estate $$$ will follow.

My birthplace, Nashville, has gotten as big and expen$ive as Atlanta. Still, a very cool city.

Are you looking for a big city? I would move to Tenn before I would move to NC. The only thing better about NC is it is closer to the ocean. But Nashville is a great town and there is no State income tax on salaries and wages.

Chattanooga is probably the most progressive civic entity in the state. Not overpopulated as of yet. They took the plunge a few years ago to invest in fiber optic throughout the city- they now boast screaming fast Internet for cheep money, simply tacked onto your utilities bill! My aunt lives in Hixon, lots of neat areas down there.

The tech sector in Atlanta is booming.

Check out Sugar Hill, GA.

Local crime is about non-existent

Anything you want from $85k to $4m, law enforcement is friendly and neighbors are good to each other. 1 hour from Suches and hundreds of miles of premium motorcycling roads.

I've heard a lot of good things about Charlotte, NC. I moved to Cincinnati because getting a house here was so affordable, and I'm pretty happy with that decision. If moving to Charlotte blows your skirt up, then go for it! You'll find things you love about the place and things you won't like at all; but unless you take a chance, you'll never know if it was the right move for you, or not.

And if you don't take the chance, you'll always wonder if you missed the boat.

I bought in the Hudson Valley . . . . it's as pretty as anyplace in the United States . . . crime, in the city I am in, was ZERO, 2 years ago and I get to choose between at least 7-15 music venues every night (except Monday) of the week. The Culinary Institute of America is a stone's throw away and there are 19 restaurants in town and each and every one is as good as anyplace in New York City. Transportation (I can walk to Amtrak in 10 minutes . . drive in about 3) is abundant with train stations and airports (I can commute to and from West Palm Beach from Stewart Airport) and it's sitting smack dab in the middle of some of the best roads in the Northeast.

... Nashville obviously has scads of music and eateries, Knoxville is taking nice strides for the food- but our jazz and blues scene is almost nil. You can find great music, just gotta look.

And, given that I've become a homebody, what I say may not be accurate. I met my Wackadoo 15 years ago at a blues bar, started pretending to be her boyfriend because she asked, still at it. Social butterflies then, cocooners now.

Knoxville is nice, and close to Pigeon Forge, which we like to pop into now and then (a nice upgrade over our Dells to the north). But Knox feels a bit small like take a step backwards to a city the size my youth.

I drove thru the south again a week ago and was really impressed with the growth and apparent strength of the areas I passed thru.

Nashville is going gangbusters! Looks and feels like the best one to one replacement for Chicago outside of Houston. It's still a bit west and I don't know how to approach it in my mind yet.

Charlotte has solid metropolitan feel to it as an analogous to our current suburbia, with the bonus of a milder climate (a big factor in our move). It's central to the upper south and all the places we like to go to or want to go to. Housing, initially rental with a temptation to buy again, is the most affordable (sooo many listing with my search parameters). So much so that it makes me curious how it relates to jobs, though it has a purported strong and growing jobs market. We can easily rent a large single family four bedroom house for just a bit less than the two bedroom townhouse we are in now and would be hard pressed to replicate locally.

I have the good fortune of a job that I can take with me (working remotely), so there is no pressure on the move outside of itself. Strangely, that kinda clouds my mind in this - I don't have a new job as a reason factor to help push me.

My Opinion because you didn't ask? It's all better than Illinois. Because you can migrate with a job that migrates too. Go anywhere! Just go. You can try the next town next year. But, GO!

+1 I couldn't be happier leaving the Chicago Burbs for Traverse City MI. Pretty nice riding. Fantastic summers. Lot's of snow in the winter, but it tends to stay a bit warmer than Chicago area much of the winter. Temps are moderated summer and winter by the unsalted ocean.

Nashville has changed incredibly since I moved away in 1990. I work in fine dining, and geez if I don't covet working at SO many of the places there. (Las Vegas about made my head explode for plenty of reasons, but also by just walking up and reading so many great fine dining menu$$$...)

Knoxvegas and the Nooga, yes, are smaller, but study them. Good luck, get ready...

Back on topic - what's the current opinion on Tilley's?
