I'm admittedly a California transplant, I moved to NC to get out of big city life and get away from the nut jobs who govern the west coast. China Grove was exactly what I was looking for. I'm close enough to charlotte that I can maintain a good job with a reasonable commute, but far enough away to experience that good ol' country livin' that I was looking for. I pay less on my mortgage in a 3 bedroom 2 story house on an acre than I paid for rent on a 1 bedroom slum apartment back in CA. If you're a single person interested in events and night life it's probably not for you, but for me its great. The people at town hall, the sherriffs dept, and all the shops around town are very helpful and friendly. As far as food, in addition to most of the usual chains we have China Grove Family House, Gary's BBQ, and Ari's Pizza are all great for a meal. Anything else you could need is close enough either in Kannapolis or Salisbury.

China Grove is a small town that doesn't have much to do for young adults as myself. China Grove is located essentially in the middle of no where with a lot of farm land. However, I love how close it is to Charlotte, Greensboro, and Winston-Salem. By being so close to these surrounding cities I have places I can go to and have fun.
I have had a great experience with China Grove. The people are nice and stay to themselves. I plan to live out my days here. There isn't a lot of traffic and big corporations, just the way I like it.
