...but we don't have a Chamber of Commerce

The Town of Matthews is located in Mecklenburg County, NC, about 10 miles southeast of downtown Charlotte. Matthews covers 17.18 square miles and is comprised primarily of low-density single family housing. A quaint downtown, attractive neighborhoods, a variety of churches, quality schools, and outstanding medical facilities make for a full-service community. The population is approximately 25,000. People feel safe and secure in Matthews. Streets exude a small town charm and small parks and natural areas dot the community. The town strives to maintain a healthy balance of quality residential and compatible commercial development, making it a desirable place to live.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:It's not the big city...
  • Cons:...but it is growing too fast for me.

    Happy New Year Ed! Sounds like you know well the restaurants you write about here and looking at what's to happen, I hope you'll manage to write some tips about both the French Thores. Marina

    If it's possible to have a mill less then $10 in the USA but in Moscow it's impossible now. Only in a cafe for students in our university. Thanks Ed for sharing, good tips!
