Mooresville Reviews

I moved to Mooresville when I was 5 years old, and my parents still reside there. Mooresville has grown immensely since we first arrived, and I believe it will continue to thrive in the future. About 25 minutes North of Charlotte, Mooresville is a great family location and is located near the beautiful Lake Norman. Growing up on the lake was an amazing experience and contributed to my love of nature and the outdoors. I still enjoy returning to Mooresville to see my parents, go to my favorite restaurants, or enjoy swimming in the lake in the summer!

I have been a resident of Mooresville for nine years now, but I feel like a tourist with all of the new things that seem to keep appearing! There is always a community event happening in Downtown Mooresville, not to mention the great food there also. I have never felt more at home and welcome, and I have never felt more safe in a town than I do in Mooresville.
I enjoy Mooresville. The small town feel makes one feel like they are in a movie. Main St has so many historic places as well as new places. The food on Main is quite expensive but overall very good. They have a small ice cream parlor which is very nice when it is hot outside. Mooresville does have that small hometown feel but once you cross over 150 there is so much to do: such as shopping, food, and the lake. Living near Lake Norman is extremely nice because it is an easy thing to do when it is warm out. Mooresville is also known for the NASCAR racer, Dale Earnhardt who lived here his whole life and attended Mooresville Senior High. Mooresville Senior High is currently under a huge renovation. They had built a new gym, theater, and band room. The high school has average athletics with superior stadiums or courts.
