Go for Huntersville. Lived there for 6 years.

Ceaderfield is a nice middle class neighboorhood. Everyone also says Birkdale is nice too but it's expensive and too close together for my taste. Gets crowded on weekends as well.

Not any real bad neighborhood's in Huntersville, you'll start to find those as you go to Charlotte. There was a murder in a trailer park in Huntersville last year but it was domestic.

Between the two, I'd pick Huntersville. I would go out of Mecklinburg County to some of the other suburban towns (Concord, NC, Belmont, NC, Mooresville, NC, or Ft. Mill, SC). They're all nice. Huntersville is really nice, but part of a very large school system (125,000 kids and counting), and is becoming really crowded and land locked. As far as Greenville, SC, it's a nice, medium-sized metro (About 900,000 metro pop.). Charlotte is larger (metro pop. 1,900,000), and has more of an urban feel and more things to do. Just depends on what you want and are looking for. Both are good.

How about just outside of Huntersville right over the line into Cabarrus county, they have some nice subdivisions there. Close to Huntersville and the Lake but you can send your kids to Cabarrus county schools and pay less property tax. Check out The Farm at Riverpointe, Moss Creek Village, Cabarrus Crossing. That would be I77 exit 25 to 73 and go east.

Yes, an even better choice would to choose a location outside Meck. Co. But if it's only between those two, then you should go to Huntersville.

The Glens at Birkdale Commons is a great place for you to possibly lease a home. They are located in the Birkdale area of Huntersville and have patio homes that would possibly meet your needs.

Depends on if you would rather have a bigger, newer house in a newer subdivisoin (Huntersville), or, would you prefer to be closer to the city with more restaurants, bars, movies, entertainment, etc.?

Its unfortunetly one or the other in most peoples price range. Huntersville is a little "too remote" for me with all of the same traffic problems but none of the amenaties that south charlotte has to offer.

Just an FYI

you guys are making good suggestions but Frankthetank and mwy39 you both are responding to a thread that is 363 days old and the OP has not posted on city data since 333 days ago according to their view profile.
