While Statesville is quite eclectic, I find the town gets old after a while. There are not many things to do, and many people tend to move away because of this. I have found that the town seems to be moving pretty slowly with the progression of modern cityscapes, roads, etc., but it does offer a small town feel if that is what you are looking for. One thing I will note, however, is the safety, while many other cities tend to be in the news for crime and such, Statesville tends to be a little more on the quieter side, which is great if you are looking to raise a family here. Additionally, I will add that the schools in the central part of the town offer a variety of enriching school opportunities for the younger generation, from early college, to the James Iredell AP academy.

Overall, Statesville is a homey, small town with modernization issues but other than that its an awesome place to live.

Statesville is a smaller town. Most residents either grew up here or have jobs in Mooresville and Charlotte. There is little traffic and we are in a good location, about 20 minutes from Mooresville, 30 from Hickory, 45 from Charlotte, and 1 hour from Winston-Salem. Most of our population has kids or is retired. There is not much to do for 20 year olds, but Mooresville and Charlotte have lots to do. We have good education systems with an IB school, early college programs, dual immersion, and a community college here. The people are very friendly but there sometimes is that southern small-town drama and stigma present. We have lots of restaurant but not many places to shop. I often find myself going to Winston for clothes. Our downtown is very pretty and has many cute shops. We also have events often like the Art Crawl, Pumpkin Fest, and Live After 5 every Friday. Statesville is a good place to raise a family and although small, it is easy to find community events to plug into.
Statesville is a small city in North Carolina that is quite welcoming. There is a great range of outdoor locations to explore nature. Most necessities can be found without having to leave Statesville, which is effective. Connecting interstates and streets make getting around Statesville easy and traffic is not too bad.
