Chapel Hill...OR...Charlottesville ?

Jump to last reply

I and my 2 daughters are relocating from New Jersey to either CH or C-ville. I have done quite a bit of research on both, so know what to expect in the way of cost of living, school system, entertainment offerings,etc..

I'd be interested in opinions as to why one locale is preferable over the other, and the reasons for that preference. We're leaving on a roadtrip next week to get a feel for both areas, and I'd like input from people who've visited or lived in either location.

Thanks in advance everyone.

P.S. We'll be renting for one year and employment is not a consideration at the moment.
