Express bus transportation and an interstate with HOV lanes provide quick access to the downtown business areas of Charlotte, making Huntersville primarily a town of commuters.

However, Huntersville has also become known for its own attractions, drawing many visitors from the area. Huntersville is well-known by locals for Birkdale Village, a planned community of shops, restaurants, entertainment, and luxury apartments overlooking Main Street.

The town also is known recreationally as a lake community because of its proximity to Lake Norman, a large man-made lake created by Duke Power to serve the region's electrical requirements. The lake attracts boaters and water skiers from several surrounding states. Huntersville is also home to several private golf courses including NorthStone and Birkdale.
