Review of Davidson, North Carolina


Wonderful place to live...
Star Rating - 3/31/2013
We just moved here from Chicago about six months ago after visiting Charlotte several time because our son attends UNCC. We happened to visit Davidson to find a new restaurant and loved the area so much that we kept visiting it and finding new adventurous and wonderful things about the area. First, it is home of the prestigious Davidson College and much of the city seems to have been built around this. The small town downtown area is very quaint has wonderful restaurants and the Summit coffee shop will have you leaving Starbucks on your first try. My boys and I love basketball and had a great time attending Davidson College game. You love outdoors? We love walking our dogs along the greenways...miles of greenways. Beautiful and if if you enjoy water, you'll love Lake Norman. We haven't tried renting a boat yet but look forward to it this summer. Our family gives the town an A+ for the quaint feel, love the walks to Summit coffee and Toaast for dinner. Walking around the college campus is fun too and catch a DI basketball game. Greenways and Lake Norman is heavenly. Oh, there is one negative thing. Traffic along I-77 is terrible in the morning and afternoon. You literally have to plan your day around it plus they're thinking about adding a toll.

I have loved Davidson for years , I love coming and walking and taking photos with my kids. I wanted to know what area of Davidson you recommend to live with kids. We live on the SC end of the lake and hate it. I am from a big City Manhattan and really love College towns and water. I love City life but really don't find living close to charlotte anything desirable just like to visit.
