Mecklenburg County NC
By the 2010 census Mecklenburg County in North Carolina is expected to have a population of close to 964,000 residents.  The NC city of Charlotte is the county seat of Mecklenburg County and covers much of the county.  Mecklenburg County is also the most densely populated county in the state of North Carolina.  Mecklenburg County is located in the Carolina Piedmont area half-way between the Appalachian Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean.  Mecklenburg County real estate is made up of approximately 20 square miles of water and 526 square miles of land which adds up to an area of about 546 square miles in size.  

The municipalities, towns and city of Pineville, Mint Hill, Matthews, Huntersville, Davidson, Cornelius and Charlotte are all located in Mecklenburg County.  Also located in Mecklenburg is the Charlotte Douglas International Airport.  The LYNX Rapid Transit System runs from Pineville in the southern end of the county all the way to Uptown Charlotte.  There is also the 'CATS' which is the Charlotte Area Transit System, a bus line that covers all of Mecklenburg County.  

Mecklenburg County is a crazy kind of sports place and fan devotion to their local/state sports teams is readily apparent.  Here we have the Carolina Panthers Football team, the Charlotte Bobcats Basketball team and the Charlotte Checkers Hockey (which debuts in the 2010 season) team.  Representing Charlotte is the Charlotte Knights, a minor league baseball team associated with the Chicago White Sox.

There are numerous museums and libraries in Mecklenburg County, some of them are:  Discovery Place, Carolinas Aviation Museum, Billy Graham Library, Charlotte Museum of Natural History, Mint Museum of Craft & Design, McColl Museum for Visual Art, ImaginOn and Public Library of Charlotte & Mecklenburg County.  

The Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) has strengthened its focus and in spite of massive cuts in the 2008/2009 budget has made much improvement in the number of students who graduated, lowered the dropout rate and raised test scores all across the board!  In addition, to public schools, there are many affordable private schools to choose from in Mecklenburg County.  For higher education - Mecklenburg County is home to the following universities and colleges: Charlotte School of Law, Johnson C. Smith University, Davidson College, Queens University of Charlotte, King’s College, Johnson & Wales University and Central Piedmont Community College and the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.  

There is shopping galore in Mecklenburg County with the South Park and Carolinas malls, shopping uptown, around town and any part of town.  From big box stores to unique, hard to find items and all types of art work... Mecklenburg County has it for you!

Whether you want to live in uptown Charlotte or in the smaller, quaint towns of Pineville, Mint Hill, Matthews, Huntersville, Davidson, Cornelius there is certainly all the variety one could want in Mecklenburg County!
