Tucked away in the northwestern corner of Union County, Weddington is one of the fastest-growing towns in metro Charlotte and is the third wealthiest in North Carolina. It’s also served by some of the best schools in the Tar Heel State, some of which consistently land on national lists of excellence for test scores, teacher-to-student ratio, and more.

    The town itself is nothing short of breathtaking – go for a walk through its quiet streets and admire the live oaks and finely crafted homes that give Weddington its unique charm. Ranches, farmland, and pastures create a rustic environment where residents can relax and get away from the Queen City’s frenetic energy.

    Over the years, Weddington has held on to its distinct small-town feel, and the population hovers at about 10,000. Its residents are served by an old-fashioned commercial strip lined with restaurants and cafés at the intersection of NC 16 and 84.

    Located 15 miles southeast of Charlotte and 14 miles northwest of downtown Monroe, the town spans 17 square miles. It’s accessible via I-485 and the average commute time for residents is roughly 30 minutes.
