I moved to Huntersville one year ago and love it. I came from a smaller town, so it's nice to have so many things available to me. The new Northlake Mall at exit 18 is a very nice middle-priced mall, and great for walking. I do not have children at home anymore, but I do read a lot of negative reports about the Mecklenburg school system.

This area is growing extremely fast and home values are going up quickly. Beware of "starter" neighborhoods, as some of them are suffering from the effects of over-flexible financing and the "should not have qualified" home owners are ending up with evictions. Lincoln County and Cabarras County both have more wide-open spaces and lower taxes.

It seems that areas West of I-77 have easier access to the HWY, and there are other ways to access Charlotte, too (I-16 in Lincoln County, Beatties Ford Rd. andRt. 115). Traffic on 77 can be congested during the "commute" hours. We do have a nice mass transit system available, though, if you're working in Charlotte.

Sorry - I had to chuckle at the "nice mass transit system". Do you mean the CATS busses? Take your life in your own hands if you ride them!
