Hi there retired active artist!
I am also extremely active as far as running, tennis and golf are concerned. There are some wonderful
greenways here in Charlotte that are fantastic to run or walk on. All together, the distance is a total of 14 miles, with more to be added. It is extremely picturesque with lots of trees, creeks, birds, deer, and lots of other creatures. How will you be spending most of your time? That will help in deciding what part of Charlotte to live in. I have lived in cities as large as Chicago, and as small as Auburn, Al. Charlotte is a wonderful city to live in. I think you will enjoy it immensely. Please let me know if I can be of any help to you.
