Love Indian Trail! Overall fantastic community to live in!
Traffic can be heavy at times, however that is everywhere in Charlotte.
Indian Trail has a fantastic small town feel, especially being so close to a major city such as Charlotte!
Tons of amenities for children, wonderful parks and recreation. A overall wonderful place to live and raise children!

Indian Trail is a quiet and peaceful little town that's a great place for anyone searching for affordable, peaceful living. Throughout the area, there are many quiet communities, many ideal for those looking for a large family home. Within the area you have a variety of things that are in close proximity. Indian Trail has multiple super markets, schools, ethnic restaurants, and a movie theater, all within a 5 mile radius. The best part is that there is no night life to worry about in town. For those who do enjoy that lifestyle, Charlotte is not very far from the town allowing those who enjoy the night scene to fulfill their energetic urge. Overall, the area itself is such a beautiful place with many qualities that gives it a special charm to it. I strongly recommend those who are looking for a nice town to start a family at to check out Indian Trail, allowing the town to show all that it offers.
The area is perfect for family. It has all you need without having to live in the city, all within walking distance. Everything from movies, Putt Putt, Jazz club, food, shopping, doctors offices, vehicle care from oil changes to tires and mechanic shops. Best of all are the schools for all ages, from Elementary School, Middle School, High School and even College. All around great place to live.
