How does Mooresville area compare/constrast with Huntersville area? Does one area have more to offer than the other in terms of homes, community, shopping, schools, parks/recreational places for kids. If you live in Mooresville to you have to Travel to Huntersville to go to great restaurants/bars, shopping, etc.

Hi
Seems like you are being ignored-the boys must be too busy talking about the lack of xxxx rated stores in the area.Funny how the all know where they are but have never been in-of course!
They soemtimes get funny on here about answering posts about areas because from "outsiders" However, I am not from the area or even the USA but do own a home there and can offer something.
Huntersville-Mecklenburg Co and and schools (and taxes!)
Mooresville -Lake Norman/Mooresville schools-Iredell Co (and taxes!)
Both have lots of shopping and dining. Huntersville has the bigger department stores like Maceys, but Mooresville has smaller ones and Walmart,Target, Lowes DIY etc.
I think Mooresville has a nicer/larger downtown area but many people who have Mooresville postal addresses probably never go there
Mooresville has Lake Norman which is one of the biggest attractions.
Both have property to suit most budgets, but Moooresville goes up to the 10 million mark because of the Lake homes
Huntersville has Birkdale for shopping etc.
Both have rec/parks etc.
Mooresville is about another 8 miles north of Huntersville so further from Charlotte.
You could also try doing a search for Huntersville, Mooresville and Lake Norman on here.
Hope this helps!

Susan yours is a very nice attempt to help Jackie, which is great, but you could have left out the dig about why his post hasn't been answered.

Those of us who post here regularly do so simply to help people. We don't ignore ANYONE, especially "outsiders" looking for info. Jackie simply posted at a time of day when most have walked away from their computers for the day - THAT'S ALL. No one is ignoring his request on purpose, I can assure you.

As Loves said no one has an issue answering "outsiders" posts. That what we do here.

For the most part you would not have to drive from Mooresville to Huntersville.

Both have national chain stores and restaurants. There are plenty of grocery stores, gas stations etc. in each city. Huntersville has Birkdale Village and is very close to Northlake Mall in Charlotte (this is where the Macy's is). I really suggest you do a forum search because their are a lot of threads about each city. Here's a few -

Davidson, Huntersville or Moorseville

Cornelius, Davidson, Birkdale, Mooresville or Lake Norman

Info about Mooresville

Can anyone give me info on Mooresville? Likes, dislikes, anything, etc.?

Mooresville has cheaper taxes that Huntersville. I like them both. I think it boils down to paying taxes.

Schools schools schools...

Iredell (Mooresville) > CMS (Huntersville)

10-15min ride to Birkdale, but I honestly think I went to Concord Mills much more.

I am also a soon to be transplant, so am hesitant to comment. But this is the area we are also looking at and I have been doing a lot of research. Although we won't have waterfront, we are hoping to buy on the lake with water access. What I have taken away from the posts on here is that Irdell County (which is the northern part of the lake and Moorseville) has less taxes and the schools are thought to be better. It also has the Point which has a great golfcourse. The High School is Lake Norman High School which has very high ratings.

Huntersville, some say is a nicer place to live then Moorseville if you want to be closer to Charlotte and still be close to the lake. It seems online to have more masterplanned communities. The attractive lake area is the Pennisnula which also has a great golf course. The high school is Hopewell HS, which has a good rating.

If you don't care about being on the lake, Davidson is suppose to be very charming. There are more older homes. I am hoping to find something close to the lake, zoned for Norman HS and close to Davidson. We are coming over Thanksgiving to make a decision on areas.

Good Luck
