Davidson Was Ranked As One Of The Coolest Suburbs in USA

Davidson, NC just made the list of the coolest suburbs in America on, based on the following factors;

1) A good (or at least respectable) food/drink scene, with enough places to go close to home to not always have to trudge back into the city.
2) Not so far away from the city that the commute is awful
3) A place with a history or its own unique elements that separate it from just planned suburban sprawl

Based on those rankings, Davidson was chosen as the coolest suburb in the Charlotte region, and one of the coolest in America.

“Never mind the fact that this town looks like it is the setting of one of Nicholas Sparks’ novels I totally haven’t read, and never mind the fact that the best basketball player in the world went to the beautiful college where you can bring your kids to watch basketball and tell them about him; never mind that it sits on a beautiful lake and has a Downtown that will make you weep with aesthetic joy, or that it is only 20 miles from Charlotte; just get the skillet burger at Kindred (it has infinity accolades nationally) during lunch, and you will understand. I actually might just move there by the time you finish reading this.

New Solar Farm

Cabarrus County’s largest building permit this summer was for a massive new solar array to be built in in Midland, NC.
It will be the county’s first large-scale solar farm, and one of the largest in the state.
Strata Solar LLC was issued a $3.5 million building permit for a 95.5 acre solar panel installation on a piece of land that was previously zoned for agriculture.

The new farm will produce 22 megawatts, enough energy to fully power about 3,000 homes per year. This clean energy will offset more than 1 billion total pounds of CO2 in our atmosphere.

They project that the farm will last at least 50 years without needing major repairs and upgrades.

‘Walburgers’ is Coming To Charlotte

Major expansion plans have been announced for Wahlburgers, the burger joint that launched a reality show staring Mark and Donnie Wahlberg, with new locations now planned for Charlotte and Charleston.

The restaurant headquarters is in Massachusetts, but the Wahlbergs commented in a recent statement that they plan to have more than 100 restaurants operating within the next several years throughout the southeast and California.

“We are on the road to bringing Wahlburgers to a city near you, we’ve created this family business with a mission to welcome families and friends from around the world to a place where they can break bread, enjoy some great food and lots of laughs.” Mark Wahlberg commented in the statement.

Mark and his brother’s restaurant inspired A&E to launch the new reality show based on the burger chain in 2014. It features all the behind-the-scene drama of expanding a burger joint to new cities throughout the Southeast.

The show has already featured an impressive mix of celebrity guests, including NASCAR favorite Dale Earnhardt, Jr., music legend P. Diddy, and even Pope Francis. Location not announced yet
