Concord, NC is an average-sized town that has quite a few attractions that visitors can enjoy. The Concord Mills mall houses many different shops that the entire family can enjoy browsing, a delicious food court, a go cart track, and an IMAX movie theatre. A short drive from there will get you the Charlotte Motor Speedway where thousands come to watch NASCAR racing, fireworks, and much more! For those who like a quiet, laid-back experience, Downtown Concord has a lovely, little row of small shops and restaurants to enjoy. The Depot, close to Downtown, is a huge antique mall housed in an old mill where you can find all sorts of items from years gone by.

While it has a few attractions, Concord is not usually the reason most people come to the area. Charlotte, NC is just a short drive away, so most people prefer to travel there for entertainment. Also, the traffic in Concord can be rather hectic, so use caution when driving here.

Concord is a beautiful and extremely affordable area near Charlotte to live. Commute times aren't much more than living in the outskirts of Charlotte but housing costs are substantially lower. It is a relatively safe place to live with a moderate amount of activities near by as well as multiple world class Universities to choose from within 45 minutes!
Concord is a great city that is growing tremendously. We have Concord Mills Mall, Lowe's Motor Speedway, Cabarrus Brewery, Carm's Café, and much more. We take pride in loving our city and being dedicated to our community. Our Mayor, Scott Padgett is a wonderful person who dedicates time and energy to bettering our community by making sure we effectively budget our tax dollars into not only our necessities each year, but also into building parks, dog parks, recreation centers, programs for the underprivileged, and more. Our leaders are dedicated to making sure Concord is and remains a great city with a big heart.
