North Carolina ranks #4 in attracting new residents since start of Covid

According to the Charlotte Ledger, North Carolina has attracted more new residents from elsewhere than all but three other states with 261 newcomers a day. It expects that most of this growth is concentrated in metropolitan areas such as Charlotte. Charlotte is known for its large tree canopy and the vast amount of green spaces and walking trails throughout the city. Being outdoors is practically year-round and that is also drawing people to the Queen City. You can’t find a better city to enhance your quality of life.
