10 Places in NORTH CAROLINA You Should NEVER Move To

10 Places in NORTH CAROLINA You Should NEVER Move To

Move to these places and you’re gonna regret it big time!

Quick! Name the fastest growing states in the country. Florida, Texas, Colorado, yes yes yes. But would you guess North Carolina? It’s true. Due to a moderate climate, relatively low cost of living and TONS of jobs in many areas, this state is boomin, fella.

Lots of people are thinking about moving here, or already have moved here. If you’re one of them, places like the Raleigh metro area, and Charlotte, and along the coast are great picks. Although jobs near the coast are very limited. But there are lots of places in this state where you SHOULD NOT move. That’s what we’re gonna talk about today.

It’s a great state, but North Carolina has some issues, that’s for sure. The old North state has poverty, crime and drugs just like anywhere in this country. Most of this state’s trouble areas share similar things – shootings, welfare, ghetto tracts, and not a lot of opportunities for young families to get started. Nor are they places that you should retire. We’re going to take a look at ten such places. Let’s begin.

    Don’t move to Charlotte. It absolutely sucks. The only town/city worse than Charlotte is Durham. Don’t move to Durham. I live there for 14 years and it sucked. It’s ghetto trash.

  6. FREE BIRD on November 17, 2022 at 9:40 am

    I was in a small bar in Hawriver just outside of Graham when my then wife was talking to one of our female friends when her boyfriend who she was breaking up with came in and he walked up behind her and put a 22 bullet right behind her ear Killin her a couple days later, just so unnecessary for anyone to have that cowardly act done to them.

  7. Chris Herrera on November 17, 2022 at 9:41 am

    I can’t believe you forgot about trashboro i mean Asheboro

  8. Doug Swails on November 17, 2022 at 9:41 am


  9. Peace Love on November 17, 2022 at 9:41 am

    Raleigh is worse than Durham they just hide it! Charlotte is totally unsafe

  10. The Wyatt Queen on November 17, 2022 at 9:44 am

    I’m surprised Hickory didn’t make the list. Lots of homelessness and drug use.

  11. Mike Martin on November 17, 2022 at 9:44 am

    How in the world did Rockingham/Hamlet not make it on this list?

  12. McCorkle on November 17, 2022 at 9:44 am

    Hell im surprised nothing in the western part of the state is on here, really anything in burke county that place is a hell hole

  13. kami jenkins on November 17, 2022 at 9:45 am

    I live in North Carolina and this is just sad. I had NO CLUE that it was so bad here. SMH 🙃I live in Ellerbe, N.C. a Lil’ sleepy town like Mayberry!! But I am surrounded by good people that I have known all my life and we care about each other and give helping hands. I love N.C. hopefully we all can get better opportunities, education, and jobs with adequate leadership, management, schooling, and helpful policing. I believe in helping the downtrodden and those with limited means. When people have no opportunities and no guidance, sometimes the streets, drugs, and poor choices all go hand in hand. Many prayers are sent up for us all.🙏

  14. Nado Thompson Jr on November 17, 2022 at 9:45 am

    Lmao put Goldsboro up there

  15. zeyanna aa on November 17, 2022 at 9:47 am

    If you want terrible education for your kids, insane drug overdoses, shootings and bomb threats. Move to Charlotte

  16. BGTHTR on November 17, 2022 at 9:52 am

    I wouldn’t live in NC if the good Lord come down and asked me. 17 years of my life in SC was enough. F**k the bigoted south. I’ll take my San Diego and west coast over Myrtle Beach or Outer Banks.

  17. Bernard Burke on November 17, 2022 at 9:52 am

    Lol I’m surprised that Jacksonville isnt on the list

  18. Brian Wilson on November 17, 2022 at 9:52 am

    You left out Asheville

  19. Katsumi Skytower on November 17, 2022 at 9:54 am

    All of you carpet baggers go home! continue screwing up YOUR home, stay out of mine….

  20. S Maksymiv on November 17, 2022 at 9:55 am

    Stop putting drug use … on the dealer 🤣.

  21. Nicholas Rising on November 17, 2022 at 9:58 am

  22. Cassandra Jackson on November 17, 2022 at 10:00 am

  27. control177 on November 17, 2022 at 10:10 am

    i grew up in Winston Salem and i can say first hand i was opposed to owning a gun until i worked in the south side area, i own 3 handguns now and carry every day.

  28. Yvette Dargbe on November 17, 2022 at 10:10 am

    I grew up in high point and left after high school, it was as much safer then.

  29. ♡SARAH♡ on November 17, 2022 at 10:10 am

    If you’re from wv and don’t know anyone. DO NOT move to surry County. They were evil to me when I moved there I was 4.
    Not gonna go until detail but I will say my life would have turned out much differently had I not developed cptsd.

  30. Ricky Norris on November 17, 2022 at 10:12 am

    Low Point, NC!

  31. sam on November 17, 2022 at 10:13 am

    North carolina sucks

  32. Kolby Jordan on November 17, 2022 at 10:16 am

    Idk if anyone here has ever heard of a small town called Robbins NC, I had the pleasure of working at a restaurant and about half the people who walked through the front door were methheads.

  33. The MetaChristian on November 17, 2022 at 10:17 am

    Laurinburg should have been #1
    And its Robe en son County not Rob en son but yes u will still get robbed 😂

  34. chloe really on November 17, 2022 at 10:17 am

    I was like: I hope he doesn’t say durham first, it’s not THAT bad.
    One second later: Durham.

  35. Nick Johnson on November 17, 2022 at 10:19 am

  36. Daniel Howes-Podzka on November 17, 2022 at 10:20 am

    What about Gastonia?!

  37. VANISHED YOUTH on November 17, 2022 at 10:20 am

    The thing about Whiteville, is that you have to know the right people to have a good time. I believe that goes for anywhere.

  38. DOF704Wizard on November 17, 2022 at 10:23 am

    Like how you didn’t say statesville nc when your really shouldn’t move there either

  39. Mortarman on November 17, 2022 at 10:24 am

    What a waste of time. Get a real job!!

  40. Random Nobody on November 17, 2022 at 10:25 am

    6:54, ran a red light

  41. Anthony Bacon on November 17, 2022 at 10:25 am

    Have lived in eastern NC for over half my life. Originally from Baltimore and I don’t ever plan on living there anymore. NC is home and has plenty of good places to live. Many of the places listed are correct, but manageable. NC is a great place to live in my opinion.

  42. Bob Simmons on November 17, 2022 at 10:27 am

    asheville sucks is getting worse everyday………..

  43. Connor Lipke on November 17, 2022 at 10:27 am

    I don’t know why security at food lion is so shocking to you. I currently live in Wilmington, every food lion here has armed security. (fun fact, I see heroin and meth every day at work here in Wilmington) I grew up in Greensboro and GSO/High point has higher crime rates than this entire list. Per capita GSO has more crime per 1000 people than Compton. We had a shooting at the walmart on wendover and now they’ve got armed security patroling the parking lot all night lol. We had 10+ police/resource officers at my high school as their primary post, on a daily basis. I wore kevlar working unarmed security at four seasons mall. Most of this state is not that bad lol.
    As for high point, the rich elites of high point don’t even live in high point anymore lol. Skeet club road is the only place you’ll find the filthy rich in that city, now they all live in Jamestown/sedgefied. The owner of furniture land south has lived in Sedgefield for over 20 years now.

  44. C C on November 17, 2022 at 10:28 am

    There’s drug problems everywhere in North Carolina

  45. lego fan gamer on November 17, 2022 at 10:31 am

    I live in benson

  46. IdentityV Marie on November 17, 2022 at 10:32 am

    Rockingham should have been at the top of the list, i hate it here 😩

  47. Sarah Arrington on November 17, 2022 at 10:32 am

    I live in north carolina about 30 mins from Fayetteville in Elizabethtown. Do you think you could do a vid on the top 10 best places to live in n.c because I don’t have to money to leave the state but I’d like to find a better place to go. N I’m sure alot of ppl thT live here would like some insight, hope, n help finding a better home life in n.c

  48. wayne's world on November 17, 2022 at 10:33 am

    lol enjoy that diversity

  49. Roderick Powell on November 17, 2022 at 10:34 am

    Lived in Fayetteville, worked at the Good Year, stacking tire’s for 12 hours, then off to my next job doing construction on Base/Fort Bragg, for 10 hours. I made good money, however the majority of People I ran into was working for Chump change. North Carolina really needs to get their shit together in regards to Minimum wage, and pay period.
