Outside the ordinary.

Gaston Outside is a celebration of the people, places, businesses and natural beauty that make Gaston County such an amazing place. From the mountains in the west to the rivers in the east, our county is woven together with a heritage of hard work and a love for the outdoors.

Nestled just outside of Charlotte, Gaston County is diverse, made up of charming small towns, plentiful natural resources and industrious people. We are proud ‘think-out-of-the-box-ers,’ makers and doers. We are Gaston Outside.

Our mission is to inspire the people of Gaston to share with the world Gaston’s incredible stories and all that it has to offer as a terrific place to live, work and play.
