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.
Huntersville is one of the towns that makes living in NC a little bit better if you've moved from another very nice place to live. Friendly people, nice stores, and a bit more upscale feeling without feeling stuffy. Close enough to Charlotte to buy a cheap Uber for a date night, but far enough away to avoid the higher levels of traffic and crime.
