Charlotte is awesome. It's just that she's still growing. Can't imagine how big the city will be in 20-30 years.

fug the fuggity fug out of that. at least TN has nashville... i lived in morgantown, the cultural center of WV, for a year or so as a kid and even then i knew it sucked hard ass. i'd take just about any part of TN over it in a heartbeat

As someone who has spent extensive time in both states, you're just going to have to take my word for it.

Tennessee does have Dollywood comon guys.

Nah I lived all over the southeast growing up, including Knoxville, and I will agree that Knoxville sucks balls. I was born in Asheville, moved all over and then ended up here in Charlotte 13 years ago. I don't plan on leaving.

They are going to keep adding on to the Vols stadium until it just collapses in on itself.

As I've always said, you can't really say anything bad about Charlotte. You can't really say anything good either. It's just kind of there.

It's a nice, non-descript, large city which is good to raise a family in, but will never win any "best of" awards.
