      I experienced a remarkable lifestyle while living in Harrisburg North Carolina. The city is an enclave of Cabarrus County. Harrisburg is close to Charlotte North Carolina. The city has a great department of education and the housing market is booming. Weather in Harrisburg is marvelous. This town experiences all four seasons. My family and I love the seasonal climate changes. My favorite season is fall. It delivers brisk, clean air and a wonderment of rustic colors. Although this is a higher cost area, the employment market is strong. The city has remarkable natural trailside and backdrops.

      Some of the best areas in Harrisburg North Carolina surround Harrisburg Park. This area is very well landscaped and is where a lot of families spend most of their leisure time. I often participated in neighborhood picnics and community hiking adventures with my family. Communities are friendly and very helpful. This is a town where everyone knows everyone. Harrisburg is a memorable city with lots of natural focal points.
