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!

Huntersville is in a great location outside of the bustle of Charlotte, but just close enough to enjoy many of the amenities that Charlotte and the surrounding area offers. There are endless opportunities to spend a weekend with outdoor activities, live music, and great food with friends, neighbors, and the Huntersville community. The town is growing as Charlotte attracts new residents, but the increase in population seems natural and easy as the area changes. I would live in Huntersville again if my career and life choices allow me to do so.
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.
