For whatever reasons (fear of new things, irrational Yankee prejudice) I'm feeling pretty apprehensive about this move. I have lived in MA or abroad all my life. I am a liberal feminist and Boston is pretty much my ideal city in terms of walkability/public transport, access to green spaces, lots of theater, etc. I would probably be excited to be moving to Asheville, even though it's still very far from my family, because it seems more like my kind of place. But then, I don't really know much about Charlotte yet. Please help me get psyched to live there. I want to really give the city a chance. What places/experiences should I check out? What is great about Charlotte? What's great about the South? How can I find my fellow weirdos?
