      Albemarle is a very diverse town with a lot of restaurants, parks and things to do. There are a lot of activities for young kids, but I have not seen many for teenagers besides school activities. We are very close to other towns, which makes it nice to venture out of Albemarle. I usually travel outside of Albemarle during the week and recommend having a car here because there aren't that many high paying jobs in the city.

      The best thing about Albemarle is that we have a lot of shopping that suits my needs including Walmart, Lowes, Sears and other retail shops. We also have a drive-thru making it a better and a more reasonable option to enjoy the movies. We are also not that far from Charlotte, so this is a great option for my family to explore other shopping and restaurants. The cost of living is quite low and it's a great place to invest in property as we are growing.
