The night life! Add more restaurants and stores. Seems that there are not really a lot of these and one has to go to the next city to enjoy and of these. I really think that if we add more places the tiny town of Wingate will grow.

I was raised in Wingate. The town has went downhill drastically in the past few years. The houses are overpriced for the poor quality of the neighborhoods, the nearby schools are rough, and crime and drug dealing is a problem. I didn't feel safe as a young woman living in a neighborhood of Wingate. There is NOTHING to do. You've got a couple restaurants, the college, and a gas station.
This site is very user friendly, easy to understand, and easy to navigate through. It was not a lot of red tape to read through everything listed was straight forward so therefore there was no gray area to be confused about. Wingate is a quiet Town about 25 miles south of Charlotte, that is quiet, friendly, safe, and overall a close knit community.
