Mooresville warns visitors: "Be careful when you pay a visit to Mooresville. You may find yourself tempted to settle here for good." Considering the phenomenal growth of this community in the last decade, the slogan is appropriate. New residents are drawn to Mooresville for the charm of the historic downtown district, fine shops and eclectic boutiques, wonderful restaurants, a thriving local economy, strong family values, and exceptional opportunities for outdoor recreation. The famous home of NASCAR racing teams and the resting place for the cars between races, Mooresville has assumed the title of "Race City USA." Without a doubt, the sparkling jewel of Lake Norman and the world-class outdoor adventures and enjoyment of nature that it makes possible are high on the list of magnets to the Mooresville area. Newcomers can choose from beautifully restored older homes or handsome new construction in a wide variety of sizes and architectural styles, many in the coveted Lake Norman area.
