Buzzing with creative and performing arts, vibrant music, urban shops and restaurants surrounded by a natural backdrop of rolling hills, horse country, and outdoor recreation, Waxhaw offers life the way you want to live it. Only 40 minutes from Uptown Charlotte, Waxhaw is a family friendly retreat from the city yet still provides it's own bustling downtown where visitors can take a walk through the National Historic District built in 1889.
Whether it's farm to table cuisine or relaxed pubs and taverns, Waxhaw offers eclectic dining experiences. Shops range from rustic antique stores and American crafts, to urban clothing boutiques, upscale home furnishings and art galleries.
Home to the largest horse population in North Carolina, residents and visitors enjoy a variety of equestrian activities. And, as a trail head for the Carolina Thread Trail, Waxhaw is part of a 15-county regional network of over 200 miles of trails open to the public.
