We are thinking about moving to Huntersville from Delaware. I have one question. Is Huntersville more like Middletown, Newark, Bear, Pike Creek or North Wilmington?

Thanks!

Smile I used to live in Newark, Delaware

I use to live in Newark, not by the university but down the down the street from the Christiana hospital off route 4 off 273 near use to be near MBNA campus.

We live in Huntersville now, been here for about 6 months use to live in Delaware about 5 years ago.

Well anyway, Huntersville in not like any places you listed above. I have not been to Middletown so I can't compare that city. Huntersville its nice you feel like your in the small town lots of traffic here with only 2 lines road. Hardly any street lights But in Huntersville you live near Lake Norman which is very popular with boater. Some parts of Huntersville remind of Delaware such things as the roads you drive sometime to get to places there. Lots of country settings here in Huntersville. but yet your still close to city of Charlotte about half hour away.

Your going have to take a road trip down here to check it out. We made several trips here before decided to relocate here to Huntersville.

Good Luck

Thank you for the valuable info. My DW and I will have to take a road trip soon.

Also, can anyone tell me the average commute time from Huntersville to Center City Charlotte. My wife would be working in CC.

Thanks again!

Hi Wlecome to possible Huntersville!!

The commute time averages 25 minutes during non commute hours to uptown and can range up to 45 minutes during peak . There is a HOV lane.
There is also express bus service of all the cities I have visited I would say charlotte has the cleanest buses I have been on and most of people using the express bus are white collar workers . They have cushioned tall seats that recline and have foot rests. A great way to by pass the traffic that isnt in the hov lane, save on parking and gas. Just dont get to comfortable I fell asleep one time and ended up at the garage LOL.

Huntersville great little city the reason I choose this location was due to it a progressive city that is growing. I dont consider it touristy but more of a bedroom community. Except for birkdale shopping area on weekends. A good time to go there is during the week alot less traffic and more peaceful.

I cannot help on boat storage but there is quite a few in the area maybe someone one will mention a good one to use.

What I like living close to the lake is I can access any time I got the urge for some fun in the sun. You are also very close to Mountain Island lake and that another lake very fun to hang out at.

There is an Aquatic Center and a little while back they had olympic diving tryouts held there.

Latta Plantation is really cool park also has the Carolina Raptor Center, horseback riding and they do special events through out the year.

I group up alot of threads relating to the area if you want to know more feel free to look at any of these threads posted below.

Thank you for the suggestion, it looks very very nice

We are in the early process of looking at neighborhoods, and any suggestions for nice family friendly neighborhoods in Huntersville would be greatly appreciated. (we have a 4 year old daughter)

Thanks!

We ended buying in the Wynfield Forest in Huntersville. we have been here for about 2 months. Loved the area. Lots of kids here. Has a community pool.

Your family will like it very much. Check it out when you come down to visit.

I am originally from Connecticut, where the housing and real estate prices, and taxes sky rocketed. My husband and I relocated to Rutherford County, NC which is in the Foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in 2001. It was the best decision we ever made, the country atmosphere and room to breath is fantastic. In CT. we would have more than likely lost our home to foreclosure due to the taxes skyrocketing. Here our taxes on a 2200 Sq. Ft. home on two acres of land are not even 1000 a year. The weather is fantastic and even when we occasionally get snow it melts fast. You will have longer springs, summer and fall like weather, but a lot shorter winters. Hope this helps. Jenny
