California to North Carolina Movers
North Carolina is becoming a popular destination to move to, particularly those from California. The Tar Heel State boasts a thriving business climate, low cost of living and beautiful landscapes wherever you look!
North Carolina is the ninth-largest state in the U.S., with a population of over 10 million, and is continuing to grow. The state offers a wide variety of lifestyles, making it attractive to transplants of all walks of life.
The state has three distinct geographic regions: The eastern coast, outer banks and coastal plains; The central Piedmont region; And the Blue Ridge Mountains in the west. The state is home to 41 state parks, 10 national parks — including Great Smokey Mountains National Park, the most-visited national park in the country – and four national forests.
These regions all offer a perfect escape for outdoor lovers. Miles of hiking trails, lakes, streams and whitewater rivers await you in all parts of North Carolina.
The cost of housing, transportation, groceries, healthcare, and utilities are all below the national average in North Carolina. Taxes are lower than the national average, too.
While summers can be hot and humid in North Carolina, they are nothing compared to what Californian’s are used to.
Wine lovers who may be relocating from the Napa Valley can find comfort in one of North Carolina’s more than 175 wineries. The state is home to the “mothervine,” the oldest cultivated grapevine in the country.
The education in North Carolina is top-notch with nationally renowned universities like Duke University, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and Wake Forest University, to name a few.
North Carolina’s job market is growing, particularly in the finance industry. The state is the second-largest banking center in the country. The state is also home to growing energy, biotechnology, aerospace, furniture, and education industries.
