I am going to be moving to North Carolina in 2011 and will be checking out the Mooresville area in April 2010. I want to just get an idea on the way things are down there. I want to be in proximity to Mooresville but want to be in a rural setting. It seems that there are alot of subdivisions that are "stuck" together being built there. Im coming from a town of 30,000 in Connecticut. Does Mooresville have a southern feel to it with what I know from visiting the south, southern hospitality, unlike the unfreindly people up here. Any help appreciated.

For what you have just described , you'd be better off in Troutman , about 15 miles NW of Mooresville. It sits on LKN , and is a reasonable commute.

Rowan county would also be a good bet, NW Cabarrus is rural now, but 10 15 yrs from now it wont be.

Mooresville is an area that has a large population of northern transplants. Take that for however you would like. Lincoln county is a rural county that is about 20 minutes to Mooresville. IMO Mooresville is overpopulated especially in the Hwy 150 corridor. I am sure there are rural areas of Mooresville, I just dont know them.

I live in Pumpkin Center(mailing address Lincolnton), it is halfway between Lincolnton and Denver. It is pretty rural. It is an easy commute to Mooresville(lots of Northern transplants) and Lincolnton(southern town). Good schools if that is a concern.

Thanks for help. Yeah Ive heard lots of northeners move there. All though Im moving there for Nascar...I always wanted to live in the "country". Where I live now is probably comparable to Mooresville, less dense though so it has to be very rural I guess, I wish this area wasnt so populated. Also hows the traffic in Mooresville? Also, whats the neatness, of the area?

The neatness of Mooresville? What's special about it?

Lake Norman if you're into boating.
