It varies, but for the most part China Grove really is a pretty nice place. Great schools, also. The town itself has started to revolutionize so much in the past year, it's incredible. It has an astounding fire department, and a larger police force than their station would suggest. Overall, very safe, other than some recent things from the news, which are far from ordinary. We also hold quite a few town functions through the year, with many, many more in local Salisbury and Kannapolis. Boasting many shops, salons, eateries, parks and people this little town is a decent location for any age group.
