SLCTNC, we only had time for a cursory look at Davidson during our first visit here, but were sufficiently impressed to make a second trip some months later to check it out more thoroughly. It is about the closest thing you will find down here to one of our New England villages---including a village green! We moved here this summer and couldn't be happier. We're retired, so I can't speak to the schools, but the community spirit here is wonderful.

Good luck!

Thank you, FromCT! That is great to know. I'm trying to get my parents to come with us- they are retirees as well. My Dad loves to fish so it is nice and close to Lake Norman.

Thanks again!

I live in Huntersville - you could not get me to move to the southern part of Charlotte. We love it up here! Great Oak elementary is brand new so there probably is not much out there to read. Most of the kids went to Torrence Creek which I think is one of the BEST elementary schools anywhere.

Davidson is fabulous (my favorite of the towns) you will find the area is more Republican leaning then south of us (and we like it that way LOL!) We are moving to Denver NC next year only because we want acreage and it is too expensive over this way.

It is a very family centered area with good schools and nice amenities and towns with character.

Thank you so much for replying! One of my good friends lives in Denver (actually my only friend in Charlotte- lol). I am interested in the Great Oaks section of Huntersville as well. I fell in love with Birkdale when I was down this summer (something we definitely don't have around here!).

I'll be honest- I lean to the left but have many friends that lean to the right. I am open-minded and can listen to others opinions. I don't really talk politics. But I have more progressive viewpoints on gay marriage, women's rights, etc. Will I feel like an outsider? Do people talk politics a lot?

Thanks!

You're definitely in touch with reality, bud. I'd live in Meyers Park, etc. if I had to commute from my overpriced $350K home to my $250K job downtown.
