Waxhaw is both busy and quiet. Despite the growing population and numerous new buildings, it still has an antique, quaint vibe. Anyone who wants the best of both worlds should definitely consider Waxhaw, North Carolina as their next home! I don’t plan on leaving!

Waxhaw is a very small town. It is beginning to become industrialized, but overall, it is a very small town. It is lovely in some parts, other parts can be hectic. You can go to Charlotte in half an hour, just like Monroe. It is the center of a few cities around and it is very convenient.

Waxhaw is a quaint, quiet town about 40 minutes from Charlotte, a major city. There’s one main street with small, brick shops such as antique shops and ice cream shops. Families and older couples often move to Waxhaw due to the feeling of security and small-town southern charm. For those looking for a more diverse and energetic vibe, they should look into moving to bigger cities.

Anyone moving to the city of Waxhaw should know it is a quiet, family-friendly suburb. It takes about an hour drive to the city-center of Charlotte, where the night lights, skyscrapers, and metropolis hustle and bustle can be found. In Waxhaw, one will also find vast undeveloped land and farm communities. You wouldn’t think such landscape would be right next to established businesses and communities.

We have a lot of farmland and we don’t have much to do in my city and the weather is always hot and my city has animal zoos and places to go fishing or hunting. We also have a place called carowinds and water parks also malls and Movie theaters.
