I've grown up here and lived here. NC is pretty central to anything on the East coast. I grew up in Gastonia, a city of maybe 100k outside of Charlotte, NC and have been in school for the past 3.5 years in Boone, NC at Appalachian State (yes, the 15k student D1-AA school who beat up on Michigan last year) and I really like the state. Its not very liberal at all, just keep that in mind, a lot of immigration by both people relocating and illegal/legal immigrants.
I'd stay out of Charlotte...that place blows in my humble opinion. To much crime and the schools suck.
The Raleigh/Cary/Apex area is where a lot of new jobs are, fairly expensive to live in, but if you can find a pretty nice neighborhood its not a bad place. My roommate is from Cary, my g/fs roommate is from Apex.
Asheville is small...artsy, and redneck on the weekends. Also a high gay/lesbian population engaging in lost of liberal hippy activities. In Boone we just drink, drive real fast around curves, and every other person smokes weed. We also bitch about the immense about of rich ******* from Florida who 1) can not drive 2) need to die already and help solve congestion problems and 3) cause land prices to go way the **** up
Emissions is county by county, but only if you are post 96.
