Hello North Carolina Bees! I was born in Massachusettes, when I was 5/6 I moved to New York (upstate, small mountain town) and when I was 11/12 moved to Florida, and have been here ever since.
Well, I hate living in Florida, it’s too hot most of the year, no seasons, flat, I hate sand, and I have super pale skin, hate the sun. With 9 months of summer, it’s definitely not the place for me. However, I do not have any interest in going back north for 6 months of winter.
I was looking for a place with about 3 months of each season, nothing too extreme, and some topography. I decided North Carolina met all those specifications, and is conveniently located right between where most of my family lives, (some in Florida, some in Pennsylvania… the rest are out in California.)
I am planning on taking a trip at some point with my Fiance to scope out the area better, as I’ve only visited a few times throughout the year, and only in Raleigh. The current plan is to move to North Carolina within a year or two of finishing school. (I’m going to get a job as a middle school science teacher if my plans pan out.)
Long story short, (too late) I was looking for some opinions from Bees who are living or have lived in North Carolina. What’s it like? Laws, taxes, traffic, weather, people, school system, anything you can think to talk about!
