So many lifestyle advantages, great schools, skilled workforce.


Stanly County, North Carolina, on the eastern edge of the Charlotte region, offers so many lifestyle advantages to those of us who call it home. Parents and employers will brag about the quality of our public and private schools. Our higher-education institutions ensure that local residents have the skills and knowledge they need to power the economy, and Stanly Regional Medical Center and other healthcare providers keep everyone in great shape. We’re home to the natural beauty of the Piedmont region, with the Uwharrie National Forest and breathtaking Morrow Mountain State Park, so it’s no surprise that Stanly County offers an abundance of outdoor recreation. Whether we’re boating, swimming, or fishing on more than 10,000 acres of lakes (and 175 miles of shoreline!), nature hiking or hunting in the forest, or playing 18 on a pretty Saturday morning, there’s plenty to do here. Big-city shopping, dining, and entertainment are very close by in Charlotte. Best of all, we can enjoy it and then return to a quieter way of life. [gallery]
