Harrisburg, North Carolina
With a total area of a little less than 10 square miles, Harrisburg is the definition of a small southern town. When going to the local grocery store, you’re bound to see friends out and about. Located
minutes away from The University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Harrisburg is a fast growing town in
close proximity to Concord.
Many restaurants are locally owned and are what keeps Harrisburg thriving with a perfect southern hometown feel. Restaurants such as AJ’s Restaurant, Three Monkeys Tavern and Grill, and Harrisburg Family House are some of the few you should try if ever in the area!
Being so close to Concord and uptown Charlotte, Bank of America Stadium, Time Warner Cable Arena and Charlotte Motor Speedway are some of the sport attractions near Harrisburg. Whether you want to watch the Carolina Panthers or cheer on Dale Earnhardt Jr., Harrisburg provides the perfect location for both.
Along with sports attractions, you can’t forget about the music life located around Harrisburg. PNC Music Pavilion is just about a five minute drive from the small town. Country concerts are a big hit during the summer time at this amphitheater.
For outdoor lovers, Harrisburg is a prime location for outdoor activities. The U.S. National Whitewater Center is about 25 minutes away and Crowder’s Mountain State Park offers hiking trails only about an hour away.
If you’re looking for a small town feel with many locally owned restaurants, Harrisburg is the place to settle down. It’s the perfect location for many of the big attractions in the Charlotte area while still enjoying the suburb aspect.
