Mooresville - "Race City USA"

Mooresville's title of Race City USA is well-deserved.  Mooresville is home to more than 60 professional racing teams, more than 100 racing industry suppliers, and two racing training schools.  Its historic downtown features many 19th century brick buildings on Main and Broad streets that sell antiques, jewelry and other specialties.  Mooresville is the 6th fastest growing city in North Carolina an is home to several upscale lakeside communities such as The Point.  The Point is a beautiful prestigious community covering 1,200 acres on a peninsula jutting out into Lake Norman with 18 miles of shoreline.  Residential development in the Mooresville area has bolstered economic development including many nice restaurants and retail shops.  Recently the Lowes Company relocated it's corporate headquarters to Mooresville.





Just 20 minutes north of Charlotte is Cornelius, a thriving lake community comprised of people from all over the United States!  There is something for everyone in Cornelius, whether you want to spend the day boating on Lake Norman, shopping for antiques in the historic downtown district, or dining at one of the fine lakeside restaurants.




Davidson  -  Home of Davidson College

Home of the highly selective Davidson College, Davidson not only has the look and feel of a small-town but also has many charms that are hard to find elsewhere.  Davidson College has buildings on the National Historical Register and the entire campus is a designated arboretum.  Both the college and the town are characterized by brick sidewalks, hanging flower baskets, and tree lined streets filled with marvelous Victorian style homes.  There is always something happening at the town square.  Davidson is a wonderful place to take a relaxing stroll.





Huntersville was once a tiny suburb 12 miles north of Charlotte.  Since 1990 the population has grown from around 3,000 to over 30,000.  Huntersville fosters a strong sense of community by being a leader in new urban planning.  Streets with bicycle access and sidewalks and neighborhoods with common areas and open space welcome residents.  It now boasts some of the best shopping, dining, golf, and most desirable neighborhoods in the area.





Located on what's known as the quieter western side of Lake Norman, Denver still enjoys a low-key lifestyle and village atmosphere.  Up until 2002, Lincoln was a "dry county".  Since the sale of alcoholic beverages was approved, more and more restaurants have moved into the area and residential growth has followed.  With easy access to both Charlotte and Hickory, NC, Denver is predicted to grow quickly in the coming years.





Troutman is home to Lake Norman State Park which offers numerous recreational opportunities.  Located between Mooresville and Statesville on the north end of Lake Norman, Troutman is a walkable town surrounded by farmland.  Where the Troutman touches the lake new upscale communities are popping up and growth is expected to continue in this area.





All American may be the best way to describe this city located just north of the Lake Norman area at the intersection of I-40 and I-77.  It has a great balance of industry, history, and community.  Five city areas are listed on the National Register of Historical Place Districts.  Site Selection Magazine calls Statesville the No. 1 Micropolitan Area for the country!  Stateville is currently renovating it's historic downtown to create a vibrant new city center.
