Davidson #1 Place to Live in NC in 2020 – Homesnacks.net

DAVIDSON, NC Article reprinted from Homesnacks.net

Where are the best places to live in the state of North Carolina?

Some might say wherever there’s a college basketball team, a NASCAR track, a sunny beach, a snowy mountain, great BBQ, or a hoppy crafted beer. When you stumble upon all, you might feel like you’ve won the North Carolina Lottery.

And, yes, it’s possible.

The Tar Heel state takes eight hours to drive from the Outer Banks on its East Coast to the Blue Ridge Mountains on its Western border. You’ll never hear a North Carolinian say that they’re bored. The eight hour trek unravels the state’s rich history around every Tar Heel corner. The Outer Banks has pirate lore and shipwrecks, battles were lost and won in the Piedmont’s backyard, and ancient Cherokee stories continue to be told around ceremonial fires in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Craft beer, BBQ, and NASCAR aside, North Carolina has a lot to offer and it is no surprise that the Tar Heel State is the 28th most expensive and the 9th most populous in the U.S. Currently 38% of North Carolinians are college-educated and with top colleges and universities like Duke and UNC, that percentage is sure to increase. Major metropolitan cities like RaleighDurham, and Charlotte are crushing the tech industry and local business is booming.

So, grab a BBQ sammie, a pint of your favorite craft beer and read on to discover how we determined the best cities in North Carolina.

The 10 Best Places To Live In North Carolina For 2020:

  1. Davidson 
  2. Cary 
  3. Apex 
  4. Pinehurst
  5. Holly Springs 
  6. Winterville
  7. Wake Forest 
  8. Fletcher 
  9. Huntersville 
  10. Carolina Beach

We wish every Tar Heel city could be in the top ten: they’re all deserving.

But what city is the best place to live in North Carolina for 2020? Well according to the US Census and FBI data we crunched, Davidson is the best place to live in North Carolina if you care about home values, low crime, and a high quality of life.

It’s not a surprise that Davidson takes the cake. What Davidson does not have by way of mountains and beaches, it does make up for with its beautiful neighborhoods, gold star schools, and sweet Carolina BBQ.
