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.

It is a nice place to live in and raise a family, but kind of old and crumbly in some areas. I would recommend going out in the springtime as it is warm but not too hot. It is pretty affordable and safe, so it is perfect for couples with kids. There are several dog parks for those with furry friends as well!
I love living in Concord, NC! The town is so small and quiet. Growing up in the city, all you hear is loud sirens, people arguing, and car horns 24/7. Concord, NC is beyond peaceful and quiet. A lot of my family have relocated to Concord to bask in the serenity this great city offers!
