Davidson, North Carolina

Davidson is built for pedestrians and bike riders, not vehicles. Residents are firm believers in nature and open land. About 600 acres later, the town has gained miles of greenways and walking trails. People of all ages are helping the Davidson population grow. The town’s mission is, “to maintain the small-town character and values that make Davidson unique.”
Davidson is known for its sense of community between its residents. They offer many organizations such as: the Davidson Historical Society, Davidson Housing Coalition and Davidson Lands Conservancy. There are also many parks to take your family to and enjoy the day or simply meet others in the area.
Davidson received its first Tree City USA award in 2011. The town was one of 72 in North Carolina to receive an award. This honorable mention is awarded by the Arbor Day Foundation to recognize higher levels of tree care. Communities must achieve these four standards before being awarded: maintaining a tree board or department, having a community tree ordinance, spending at least $2 per capita on urban forestry and celebrating Arbor Day.
Downtown Davidson has an array of locally-owned shops, galleries and restaurants. You could spend an evening at Kindred Restaurant, have a sweet treat at Ben & Jerry’s or stop for a cup of coffee at Summit Coffee. Village Green is in the center and serves as a gathering place for many events. From May until September, “Concerts on the Green” are a huge hit for residents of Davidson. Another great way to meet your neighbors is by stopping at the Davidson Farmer’s Market, open every Saturday. The Davidson Farmer’s Market gives residents the chance to support local farms and small businesses by shopping through their fresh food, locally-grown flowers or even organic dog treats. Not to mention, you can cheer on Davidson College’s basketball team and hopefully see their most notable alum, Stephen Curry on the court.
Davidson also makes up one of the few towns that boarder the famous lake, Lake Norman. The lake was created in 1963 by Duke Energy and its shoreline is 520 miles. From water skiing to fishing, Lake Norman has activities for the whole family to enjoy year around!
