Area Spotlight: Davidson


In the center of American zeitgeist lies the ‘small town’, specifically, the idea of Mayberry. Shops are small, restaurants are farm-to-table, parades go down Main Street and everyone cheers for the underdog. The perfect town of Davidson has all this and more!

Home to Davidson College (Go Wildcats!), the main downtown has all the energy of a college town mixed with the ease of life on a lake. Locals can be found enjoying watersports on Lake Norman, lunching on Main Street, or strolling the stunning, leafy green campus. The college and the town really go hand in hand, one simply wouldn’t have thrived without the other. It’s truly a cornerstone of the community.
