Weddington is a great community of active residents. The schools are excellent and provide many enrichment opportunities for students. Town zoning requires 1 acre lots so no overcrowded neighborhoods like surrounding towns. The town has a nice country feel with a number lakes throughout. It’s about as far south you’d want to go if commute to Charlotte. With new shopping and restaurant areas built in 2017, there are many places to go out to dinner or drinks.

Small, quiet town with great access to Charlotte as well as 485. Many good shops as well as great places to eat. Beautiful town to live in!
We love Weddington! Huge lots! Safe, family atmosphere. Best schools in the county and top three in the state.
