Hi there
Yes, we are building in Denver but hope its a good move. I havent really seen much on the board about Denver ; its all been about areas east of Lake Norman. So along with all our fear of ' the big move", I am hoping that its a decent area to move to.

We are going back down during the week of Christmas to check on the house ; any ideas of where we should bring the kids to?

Thanks
dorothy

You will love Denver and the surround areas. I live about 3 hrs west of Denver. The weather is mild, no tornadoes or hurricanes. they are getting some snow today, but guaranteed it will be gone with in a day too. We are getting heavy wet snow up here in the high country which we will deseperately need for this next summer for water supply.

I think you are speaking of the wrong Denver (the poster above will be located in Denver, NC).

You will love Denver. It's a GREAT place to raise kids! Small town, nice people, low crime, but close to Charlotte for cultural activities.

Two years ago while we were looking for a place in NC to retire. I ran into a guy who said "Denver is THE place". He was right. The place has exploded. The oly concern I would have is the sudden growth causing traffic jams. It is a beautiful area.

Default We bought in Denver

Having a house built that will be ready this summer. Wife and I have a 3year old. We've been down to visit a few times and like the rural feel that Denver has. Although with the rate that the area is developing I don't know how many years Denver will be able to hang on to the name "The quiet side of the lake".

Denver seemed to have a lot going for it..Quiet Side of the lake, Verdict Ridge Golf Course, close to shopping at both 16/73 and Birkdale, close enough to commute to Charlotte, good schools, etc. They are also building a highway "New Route 16" adjacent to the "old route 16" that should alleviate some of the traffic concerns.

How is the commute into Uptown Charlotte from Denver? I like the idea of the lake, but the traffic concerns me.
