I have lived in Huntersville NC for almost 15 years. The area is smaller than others, but is full of fun things to do! I went to school here, learned how to drive here and since my family still lives here, I visit in the summer and on holidays when I am home from school. It is the perfect place for starting a family. throughout my time living in Huntersville, I have watched newly married couples move in across the street and have their first, and sometimes even second, kid before wishing them farewell when they decided its time to move into a new home.

Huntersville, NC is one of the fastest-growing, family-friendly towns in the United States. As one of Charlotte's suburbs, it's far enough from the city that you have the town-like feel. However, it's close enough that you're a 15-minute drive away from everything downtown Charlotte offers, such as Charlotte Hornets basketball games at the Spectrum Center or Carolina Panthers football games at Bank of America Stadium. Huntersville provides many forms of entertainment itself with the likes of Birkdale Village, movie theaters, mini-golf, Lake Norman, and a constantly growing sports and recreational activity scene.
It's a beautiful city! Right outside of Charlotte, Huntersville is continuing to grow and urbanize. Amazing city. The public schools aren't the best but the privates are great! A very diverse group of citizens.
