Huntersville offers a quality of life unmatched in the Charlotte Metro. The town retains a small-town feel with friendly people and a compact downtown. There are plenty of recreational opportunities with multiple golf courses, several parks and close proximity to Lake Norman. This is a family friendly community with festivals for all ages occurring just about every month of the year. There is a variety of housing types in neighborhoods that range from rural to downright urban. Huntersville really punches above its weight with shopping and dining options that most associate with a big city. With Charlotte just a few minutes away, what's not to like about Huntersville!

Love love love Huntersville. Moved here on a trial basis from NJ four years ago! Not moving anyplace else as the people are great, proximity to interstate is ideal, and the schools are great for my kids. I can’t say enough good things about Huntersville.
I live in a suburb of Charlotte, North Carolina, called Huntersville. When I was a little over a year old, my parents moved my entire family because my dad got a job in Charlotte. In 1999, the population of Huntersville was a little under 20,000 people. It's been 17 years since we have moved here, and the expanding wheat fields next to my neighborhood have evolved into shopping centers that bring countless numbers of shoppers from other suburbs around Charlotte. The population has skyrocketed to over 50,000. Huntersville has become a town that many people have heard of now, with new, trendy restaurants ranging from high-end sushi restaurants to rustic burger bars. Huntersville is conveniently located about twenty minutes from the city, with many employees, like my dad, commuting on the bus system to work every day. Just past Charlotte is Carowinds, an amusement park that brings countless tourists to my area from all over the country. Charlotte is a growing city, with plenty of jobs opening every day. The Bank of America headquarters is located in Charlotte, which opens up many jobs that place hopeful employees in Charlotte's suburbs. Also, there are a few shopping malls in the area, including one outdoor mall called Birkdale located in the heart of Huntersville.
