Mint Hill is a small town where everyone knows everyone! It is a fun place to live and work. Every year we have a fair called Mint Hill Madness, we have food trucks, rides for kids, music, and games. I love Mint Hill and can see myself living in Mint Hill after I graduate college and even after I get married and have children someday. Mint Hill is slowly growing and developing, everyone in Mint Hill is very friendly.

Mint Hill is a small little town right outside of Charlotte, NC. There's not much to do in town, but its only about 20 minutes from places the Uptown. It's nice to be located around a lot of fun things, even if it's not right in town. Mint hill is growing and expanding a lot, so think it'll be more interesting in the next few years. It's not my favorite place to be, but I know there's a lot of worse places that I could live in.
It's awesome! It is continuing to grow and be a bigger part of Charlotte, NC. Many new places are coming up around the area and making it more and more cultural friendly. It used to be more geriatric, but is coming up with more and more families. Plenty of parks, restaurants, places to go.
