What i do enjoy mostly about Wingate, it's a small town. It's easy to get around, mind you, when college is in session it's gets a little harder to move. You have fast food restaurants such as Burger King, Mcdonald's, Great China, and Tokyo Bistro. You do have good food options when it comes to this town. As far as the night life, there's none. If you're a family person and you're big on raising a family, Wingate is a great option. We do have a nice park that hosts two baseball fields and another field used for soccer and recreational activities. One thing I would change in this town not changing anything. Don't put Round-a-bouts in Wingate!

Wingate is a small town in the suburbs of Charlotte NC. There are few businesses here but the ones that are here are very community oriented. My favorite place to eat in Wingate is Gino's located right off the highway in the food lion shopping center. Wingate University is full of opportunities and looks for every possible way to assist the local high school kids to be able to attend college. For nightlife you do have a short drive into the city, but the family friendly, small town lifestyle of Wingate is worth the drive.
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.
