Why you'd want to live in Pineville
Sometimes called “the biggest small town around”, Pineville stays active with a heady craft beer scene and a host of entertaining and educational and family-friendly activities. Sitting just outside Charlotte’s city limits, Pineville was first a mule-bartering post and then a stop along the Charlotte and Columbia Railroad. It now encompasses a golf course, a music hall, antique shops, a mall, go karting, mini golfing, and restaurants galore. Aptly named for its stately pine trees, the town was incorporated in 1873. Visitors of the President James K. Polk State Historic Site can pay tribute to one of the town’s most famous former residents, the nation’s 11th president.
