A mere 15 minutes drive apart, the town of Mint Hill is adjacent to Matthews and also serves to provide the highest standard quality of life. The hopping suburb is settled just outside the city in southeastern Mecklenburg County on the northwestern border of Union County. A bit slower and traditional for my taste, the town of Mint Hill also offers big city amenities and opportunities on the doorstep of a great metropolis, while offering small town charm. Comprised of 25 sq. miles, this town has easy transportation access conveniently located just off I-485 and prides itself on taking an active role in the community offering a robust real estate market, a health conscious, recreational minded population, and an array of options for quality education and healthcare options. Here, families pack picnic tables outside local desert destination Carolina Creamery, which serves homemade goodness. And Tuesday through Sunday, Barking Duck Brewing Co. beckons with tasty bites and cold, homegrown small-batch brews. Also, don’t miss the towns defining event; the annual Mint Hill Madness. This Memorial weekend festival celebrates the founding of Mint Hill and draws thousands of visitors each year with the parade, fireworks, outdoor music, and delectable food vendors. This is the ultimate family experience!
