While most available rentals in Kannapolis are single-family homes with two, three and even four bedrooms, it's still possible to find one-bedroom apartments here. You'll have the most luck finding one-bedroom accommodations as you venture toward the city center.

Does Kannapolis Have Any Astounding Attractions?

Kannapolis has parks, museums, theaters, stadiums and vineyards, making it easy to find something that suits your fancy.

If you like to spend your free time relaxing outside, then be sure to explore Kannapolis' parks. Village Park has a small water park, a concert pavilion and lit displays at Christmastime. There's also Baker's Creek Park, which is centered around a creek and has a playground, picnic pavilions and walking trails.

If you prefer cultural amenities, you should catch a film at the Gem Theatre. While it mainly plays new releases, this retro movie theater will certainly take you on a walk down memory lane.

Kannapolis is also in the heart of racing country, so it's only appropriate that this is the home base of Stewart-Haas Racing, a title-winning NASCAR team. You can tour the team's facilities, see how the cars get souped-up and pick up a few souvenirs at the gift shop.

What Do People in Kannapolis Do for a Living?
