Matthews is a small town located just southeast of Charlotte with an active town center, various shopping centers, lively community events, and a wide range of housing options.
The downtown Matthews area is located along Trade Street and there you will find a variety of restaurants including local favorites Santé, Kristopher’s, and Cafe 157. Santé is an intimate place featuring more upscale food that is perfect for a date night. Sports fans can enjoy the game at Kristopher’s with uniquely named burgers and sandwiches. Cafe 157 is an American bistro with a relaxed atmosphere and a varied menu with something for everyone.
On Saturday mornings, head over to the Matthews Farmers Market and try out fresh produce from the area’s small, local farmers. In the Spring, go see the baby chicks at Renfrow Hardware and pick up some heirloom seeds while you are there. Matthews Alive is great family event that takes place downtown over Labor Day weekend near Stumptown Park and the fire station . Filled with games, rides, craft vendors, and the obligatory funnel cake, the event gives its proceeds to help area non-profit groups. Other helpful Matthews’ links include the Matthews Playhouse for local theatre events and the Matthews Athletic & Recreation Association for youth sports teams.
There are housing options in Matthews to fit almost every lifestyle. For an easy, low maintenance option, there are many two story townhome communities including Avington and Park Place. The popular single level “pinwheel” plans are available in St Andrews which is within walking distance to shopping and in Polo Club at Weddington which is in walking distance to Francis Beatty Park. Single family neighborhoods vary in price range depending on location, size, and condition of the homes. A few of the Matthews area subdivisions are Deerfield Creek, Matthews Plantation, Providence Hills, Thornblade, Elizabeth Place, and Sardis Forest. Matthews has many different school zones to choose from so keep that in mind if you have a particular school preference.
