Mooresville, NC

Pros: Mooresville, NC is the best place to live for the money that I know of anywhere...

Cons: The traffic on the west side of town is getting rreally bad and the DOT of NC has screwed up the stoplights to where they take too long before changing.

This is a good place to retire or raise children...
