Today’s headline in the Mooresville Tribune reads: “Mooresville joins list of top places to live”. Officially, we were #65 out of 100 on Money Magazine’s annual Best Places to Live list. As James Justice, our Town Manager said in the Tribune article: “This particular accolade supports what many of us already know, and that is Mooresville is a great place to live.”
According to Money Magazine, “For this year’s list we focused on smaller places that offered the best combination of economic opportunity, good schools, safe streets, things to do and a real sense of community”. Well, this is simply validation of what I discovered three years ago while researching on the Internet and why my family lives here today! For a town of 23,100 to have great schools, miles of shoreline on beautiful Lake Norman, great shopping and restaurants, and be located close to the major metropolitan area of Charlotte yet just miles to rolling farmlands and picturesque countryside, an hour and a half from the incredible Blue Ridge Mountains and the artsy town of Ashville and about 4 and a half hours to some the most beautiful beaches in the country is pretty darn hard to beat.
