I'll be working in rock hill but want to live in a social environment with others that are close in age. Do not want to be surrounded by families. Or in a rural area, However, I'm a little old for the college scene. So, I'm trying to find a happy medium. I live in a beach community now where every one is active, bike riding to lunch on a beautiful day, wine tastings etc. I think I have some good areas to explore when I make the trip up. But first.....I need the job offer;)

Walking neighborhoods in Charlotte tend to be near Uptown (NoDa, Elizabeth, Myers Park, Dilworth, Chantilly, Cotswold), around the University area, near the light rail line, around malls and major shopping areas (southpark, northlake, birkdale, carolina place, concord mills, etc. and along greenways. What may be more important is being relatively close to where you are working. Here are some rental sites that might help.

Hey Sloane!
Welcome to Charlotte! I work with a lot of transplant and relocation clients and would love to help with your move. What lifestyle do you enjoy? Urban/city life? Rural/small town? Where will your job be located? There are so many great areas in and around Charlotte, I'd really need to know a little more about your needs in order to help. Southpark, Dilworth, Southend and Uptown are all great areas for young professionals!

You are going to love Charlotte! You will very pleased with all the activities and events available for you to enjoy and meet people. As for walking neighborhoods, take a look at Uptown, Dilworth & Elizabeth for neighborhoods close-in. Other possibilities are SouthPark & Ballantyne, but the "walkable" zones of those neighborhoods are much more concentrated and car traffic can be excessive. You will find more singles closer in, more families in the burbs. Come for a visit, drive around, park your car & walk. See who's out and about. You will find a lot of friendly people more than willing to stop and chat with you about what they love (or not) about their neighborhood! You will find a neighborhood that is "you". Best of luck!

You'll love Charlotte. It is a great place to call home. I think you might like to also check out Southend, Dilworth, Midwood and the Noda area. You can see videos and lifestyle info on our neighborhood blog http://www.Hiphoods.com All these areas have lots of character, local businesses and great walking. They are also close to up town (if that is where you are going to be working). If you are working out of Charlotte... it might be better to look at a few other areas. http://www.BallantyneBuzz.com is our blog that covers that area (which is huge) and http://www.lakenormanlivingnc.com has the scoop on living up on the Lake.

Sloane,

Depending on where you want to live there are many options available to you for walking neighborhoods in the charlotte area. Uptown is full of apartments, condos and places for rent that are suited for the walker in mind. South park area is another popular area among professionals that is very walker friendly.

Charlotte has many greenways and other avenues for people as well; as a city strive daily to be more green. It really depends on what you are looking for in a walking community. Is it close to work? Shopping? restaurants? or all of the above. if all of the above then the South park and uptown are your two best options.

Sloane,

I would love to speak with you about your housing needs. You have indicated a desire to be in a walking community. I need to get a better idea of what your idea of a walking community may be. Some folks want to be near the Center City area and consider that to be their target with regard to a walking community; others simply want to be in a space where they can have walking access to shopping and restaurants. The Charlotte region has many options in both categories. We probably need to know where you will be working and plan a strategy for a rental after we know where your employment will take you.

If you would like to talk further about all of Charlotte's great communities, please feel free to contact me and we can work together toward a great solution. Welcome to Charlotte! You are going to love it here!

Blessings upon you...
