________________________________________________________________

Whether you prefer the sandy beaches on the East Coast, the blue-green mountains of the Piedmont region or the big city flavor of Charlotte, North Carolina offers something for everyone. And newcomers have realized this: the state population grew almost 100,000 in 2013 alone. A relatively low cost of living combined with a moderate climate and a booming job market make the Tarheel State an ideal choice for professionals, families, and retirees alike.

Picking the right spot to settle down is no easy decision. Living near a major metropolitan area such as Raleigh-Durham offers a broader range of options when it comes to jobs, schools and homes but it also means a higher cost of living. Smaller towns, on the other hand, offer the southern hospitality you’re looking for at an affordable price. We’ve put together a list of cities that offer the best of both worlds when it comes to work and play. If a move to North Carolina is in your future but you’re not sure exactly where you want to put down roots, let the CreditDonkey team’s rankings be your guide.

Study Methodology

In compiling our rankings, we zeroed in on five key factors:

  1. Odds of Being a Victim of a Violent Crime
  2. Commute Time
  3. Income
  4. Residents Who Attended Some College
  5. Restaurants Per Capita

Knowing that you’ll be safe wherever you decide to call home is a top priority, so we paid close attention to crime rates when compiling our rankings. For each city on our list, we broke down the odds of becoming the victim of a violent crime.

No one likes being stuck in traffic; before you plan a move, it’s helpful to know what kind of commute you’re likely to have. All of the cities included in our study have an average commute time of less than 25 minutes.

And if you’re on the hunt for a new job in a new place, it helps to know where to find the best-paying positions. When deciding which cities to include in our study, we considered how each one stacks up in terms of average income. We also took into account what percentage of residents attended some college, since this can directly impact wages.

Finally, we factored in the number of restaurants and bars in each location. From good old-fashioned southern cooking to high-end cuisine, the cities on our list appeal to every taste.
