It may not seem like much, being ranked 166 of all southern cities, towns and villages in quality of life. But when you factor in that Mint Hill was in the top 15 percent out of 1,146 places, it doesn’t look so bad.
The Business Journal used a variety of factors to determine the quality of life including economy, housing and education. Huntersville, Cornelius and Matthews all ranked in the top 10 in North Carolina, while Chapel Hill was No. 13, just one spot ahead of Mint Hill.
Mint Hill ranked higher than Raleigh and Charlotte on the list.
