Not what I was expecting...

I don't understand why this place is consistently overhyped and exaggerated to be something it's not. It's not a cosmopolitan or world class city. Sorry, it just isn't. I think North Carolina natives assume it's great, and when you grow up in a rural conservative state, I'm sure it seems like mecca. I was born and raised in Maryland, lived near Philadelphia, New York, and DC. Moved to Florida and lived in Tampa and from my perspective Charlotte is far behind these other places. The people who rave about Charlotte are usually the people living around Lake Norman, which is a very nice area I agree, but as a whole I think the city should watch its boasts and claims. Downtown is cute, but does not compare at all to any of the other cities I mentioned nor even close to Atlanta. Once you drive through downtown you will end up in the ghettos, yes sorry but I had to mention the truth. East Charlotte is a complete ghetto. The roads don't make sense. Signs tell you to take 85 north but the highway is running horizontal East to West. Whoever did city planning needs schooling. Once you get outside of the highway perimeter, confederate flags reign, babtist churches on every corner and rundown little towns. The area is overtly religious and ultra conservative. It seems like this town tries to portray sophistication and it falls up short time and time again in the communities, planning, and culture. I guess it's great if you like cookie-cutter homes, Bojangles, and living in a civil war era reenactment. Sure there's the lake and access to the mountains but it's not enough compared to say Denver. Charlotte is mediocre to me.
