Just 20 miles north of Charlotte, snuggled up to Lake Norman, is the college/lake town of Davidson, home to comforting old trees and cherry blossoms in the spring. Davidson is home to Davidson College, a highly selective liberal arts college located in the heart of town on Main Street. 

Nationally known Davidson College has made Davidson an intellectual and cultural center, drawing into its orbit a sizable professional class.  Davidson College has been ranked the top school in the south and is consistently ranked in the top ten best liberal arts colleges in the country.  It has graduated 23 Rhodes Scholars, and its exceptional students contribute to a pedestrian and bicycle friendly town.

Since before the Planning Ordinance of 2001, the town has advocated for and implemented smart growth principles, including pedestrian orientation, mixed-use development, affordable housing, open space, and connectivity. And, Davidson received National Register Historic District status in 2009.

The town of Davidson believes in connectivity, with walkable streets, well-kept neighborhoods and a great "sense of community." Main Street’s vibrant business district has shops, wide sidewalks, a community library, bookstores, and several ice cream shops, with greenery and flowers everywhere. Inviting and renowned restaurants abound, with a famous James Beard cooking up the street. Our town green is used for outdoor concerts, festivals, and any number of special events, even jugglers, and croquet.  

Our miles of greenways and walking trails connect neighborhoods, providing citizens with alternate ways to get around town, with nature routes all around. When you drive off Interstate 77 into Davidson, you see offices, restaurants, and hotels, but you also see green space, homes, schools, and shops all accessible to pedestrians. Development is pedestrian friendlier in Davidson.
