Good book on NC?

We're looking to relocate to NC in the not-too-distant future, but are finding limited information available at the books stores to help us narrow down our location preference... can anyone suggest a good book with general information about North Carolina that would also include city-specific information?

Hi amandapants: I've got to tell you...prior to our move to the Carolina's I gathered most of my information from the internet (which I am very thankful for). My friends back in CA also purchased Fodor's and Frommer guides for us....but so much of that is for travel info and not for relocating.

One website you might want to check out is: carolinaliving.com/heartlands/charlotte.asp

Another suggestion is a wonderful magazine that comes out monthly called: Our State (http://www.ourstate.com/)

Good Luck with your search!

You'll get some info from the Insiders Guide line of books. Look up insiders.com. Page down to North Carolina and click on the four geographic areas.
