Tons of neighborhoods in huntersville. I live in Villages at Rosedale and you can't swing a stick without hitting a kid in this neighborhood. We border Torrence Creek elementary on one side and a shipping plaza on the other. Great location with easy access to everything.

Huntersville is nice. All the LKN towns are nice (Huntersville, Cornelius, Davidson, Mooresville). Mooresville has the better schools than the other towns. Huntersville, Cornelius and Davidson do have some of the best schools in Meck County, but since you have a 14 y/o, I would definitely consider Mooresville. But, any lake area towns are very nice places to live!

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.


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.

Newcomer Photo Guide to Lake Norman and surrounding area Im going to add on to this soon just been kind of busy.

I personally think it would be better to live on the left side of I 77 in Huntersville due to there is more traffic issues for someone living on the right side and that side has been seen a rash of crime lately.
