Kannapolis has come a long way since the closing of the Cannon Mills. Over 40,000 layoffs, it was a huge hit to the town & the entire area. Now, downtown Kannapolis is on the rise again. It’s been able to hold on to some of the charms of the old times but has a lot of new stuff too.
While in Kannapolis make sure to explore the city, especially the revitalized downtown. Charlotte On The Cheap put together a guide to spending the day in Kannapolis.
