Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD hi Debb... no beaches anywhere near us! Charlotte and Matthews are landlocked... that's the whole idea behind this festival in Matthews... they make it feel like you are spending a day at the beach! It's very popular.

Hi Nina:

Matthews NC sounds like a wonderful community in so many ways. No wonder it ranks so highly on the list...and no doubt many do not want to leave the area!

Jeff Dowler, CRS hi Jeff... Matthews is an old town in North Carolina, but not as well known as others in the state. These days people tend to think of it as a suburb of Charlotte.
