I absolutely enjoy Pineville, it's nice and cozy. Although it isn't too big, it has so much to offer as far as different restaurants and local community activities. I love going down the to park during the summertime where the rec center plans movie nights and even festivals! This small suburb gives you the small community feel but with big city amenities.

Pineville is an awesome City, small but well put together. Traffic is a bit heavy, but being just outside of Charlotte that is expected. Beautiful parks, an awesome Mall, variety of restaurants and friendly people. We have definitely chosen a great Town. Living and loving it to the max!
Hi. I wanted to share my thoughts about Pineville with You. I am a current resident of Pineville, NC. I lived here for 5 years now. Since I moved in, I really liked the area. Everything is very close to my house, such as the mall, the pharmacy, grocery stores, and gas station. I like to live here because I live very close to Ballantyne. It is a rich area with expensive and luxury hotels and houses. The streets are very nice and neat. The area is clean. The only thing I would suggest of adding is more lanes. Lately, people have been moving to Pineville. It gets really crowded with lots of cars. It causes to stay under the red light longer. Other than that I am very satisfied with the city that I live in. Thank You.
