Can anyone tell me how long the commute is from Huntersville area to Concord?
My husband may be starting a new job in Concord so we will be relocating soon from the Wilmington area.
I've started doing a little bit of research and it sounds like we would really like the Huntersville area. But Concord doesn't sound bad either. We just like the thought of being closer to the lake and an easier commute into the city.
Any suggestions??? We will be coming to the area next week to look around.
We are both in our early 30's and have a 2yr.old. School systems are important and safe neighborhoods in the 200-250,000 range We would also like to be near shopping and good restaurants.

Do you know if that would be a long commute for work? Huntersville area to Concord? Distance can be deceiving with traffic...

The commute from Huntersville to Concord is easy - you wouldn't even have to get on the interstate. It takes me abot 20 minutes to get from Huntersville to Concord Mills mall.

You might also want to look at the highland creek neighborhood in Concord.

I love Huntersville, though

When I drive from Bud Henderson Road in Huntersville to the intersection of highway 601 and 49 in Concord, it's about 40 minutes. It's a little over 30 to the Northeast Regional Medical Center. It's only about 20 minutes to Concord Mills, so knowing the starting and end points is helpful.

The eastside of H-ville (east of 77) to Concord is easy and there are a bunch of backroads

It really depends on where in Huntersville you want to live and where in Concord the job will be. There are some great neighborhoods along Hwy 73. Do you know where he will be working? And, what price range neighborhood are you looking for? There are some great neighborhoods along Hwy 73 that are close to both areas.

I live between Concord and Huntersville. Each area has its pluses, but I would pick Concord over Huntersville for the school system alone. The drive to Huntersville via Hwy. 73 isn't that bad for those times when you want to shop, eat, etc. near the lake. Depending on the time of day and part of town you're headed to, it could be a 20 min. trip. Plus your taxes will be lower in Cabarrus County (Concord) vs. Mecklenburg (Huntersville). Like the previous poster said, if you look along Hwy. 73 between the two towns, you can find some great places to live that would be convenient to both areas. Good luck!!
