Local Lifestyle


Huntersville is full of family-friendly activities all year long. From festivals and school events to local neighborhood get-togethers, families have plenty of time to connect with their community. It is the type of town where children, and their parents, build lifelong friendships. Neighbors know one another and often create extended families to share in the experience of raising a family. Getting out of the house for some adult fun is also simple with many fun restaurants and pubs in the downtown area. These are just a few of the reasons why more people are wanting to create their life here.
 

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping


The smell of the hickory wood-fired grill will have you craving that cedar-planked salmon as soon as you get out of your car. You can watch the show of your food being created in the open kitchen of 131 Main while relaxing, feeling warm and cozy with gas lamps flickering around you. The buttery sweetness of their cast iron cornbread will stave off your hunger until your food arrives. Order one of their specialty martinis or select from their long wine list to enjoy with your dinner. 

Fresh fish, cut by hand, at Eez Fusion will be creatively turned into sashimi or unique sushi rolls by a team of talented sushi chefs. For those who prefer their seafood cooked, their stir fry bar allows you to create a dish perfectly customized to your likes. Bring your children along to try it out or treat them to a PB & J Sushi Roll. 

Pop-up events, retails specials, and happy hour specials at Birkdale Village will have you visiting here often. A wide selection of retail shops blended with unique restaurants give you plenty to explore on your own or with a group of friends. Even going to the dentist will not seem so daunting in such a fun place. 

Firebirds Wood Fired Grill is the perfect weekend brunch spot with not only a fantastic brunch menu but also bloody marys and mimosas. Order the Lobster Spinach Queso or the Seared Ahi Tuna to share with the table while waiting for your main course. The dinner menu has steaks, seafood, and chicken dishes to choose from and plenty of sides to complement your selection. Specialty cocktails and wines pair perfectly with your meal and their desserts are worth every calorie.
 

Things To Do


Rural Hill is a historic place set within a stunning natural environment. It is more than a place full of history, it is a place where the community comes together to celebrate throughout the year. It is also a place where children learn, and locals get active by hiking the trails. Community events draw people to the space, and they keep coming back because of the beauty surrounding them.

In the fall, the entire family can come together at Rural Hill and try to find their way out of the seven acres of corn at the Amazing Maize Maze. Enjoy a hayride, spend some time among the fall foliage on a hike, or pick a pumpkin to kick off your fall decorating plans. 

For two days in May, the North Carolina Brewers and Music Festival draws locals to Rural Hill. Some patrons set up camp on-site to partake in live music venues, craft beer from around the state, delicious food, and unique vendors. This is a large festival and everyone attending is certain to have an amazing time. 

For centuries, the Highland Games have been helping Scotland boost its cultural pride and identity. Today, dancing competitions, bagpipes, steel drums, and the historic games come alive on Rural Hill at the Loch Norman Highland Games. Come for the tug-o-war competition and stay for the food, fun, and excitement.

Birkdale Village Welcome to the "crown jewel" of Huntersville. Located on what used to be a dairy farm, Birkdale Village has become a popular retail destination that people near and far go to shop. Birkdale opened twenty years ago offering 250,000 square feet of retail, 320 apartments, and 50,000 square feet of office space. It has become a gathering place for special events including popular 4th of July celebrations, live concerts, and group yoga sessions on the public greenspaces. This large open-air shopping destination was recently purchased by North American Properties who have plans to upgrade the property with new paint, new tenants and more than 100 events and programs each year.
