I often lose site of the fact that I have lived in Charlotte for NINETEEN years – almost my entire life! When the idea of possibly moving recently came to fruition, I began to freak out. How would I know where the best place to live would be? How would I ever find the local watering holes, or best hole-in-the-wall BBQ joints? Who would I ask for recommendations on doctors or dentists? Where would I find a hair stylist who could mix up the perfect batch of blonde? This minor period of panic led me to compile a Best of the Best list that I could share for the Charlotte area. Whether you’ve been here for years or just a few weeks, I hope my referrals will help you!
