Articles in Lake Norman Area Information

Lake Norman is a friendly and warm community.

 
There is always something to do. If you love the water then you have found the
right place!  You can go paddle boarding, jet skiing, kayaking, take your
boat out for a lovely cruise or relax and sunbathe at Mecklenburg County's only beach.
 
If you are a fishing enthusiast, bass to striper to catfish are biting
and ready. Lake Norman hosts numerous prominent fishing tournaments,
including BASS and FLW Tour yearly. 
 
Lake Norman has a bounty of Parks with beautiful walking and biking trails
including Jetton Park in Cornelius. It has 104 acres a small beach, a 1.3 bike trail
and a 1.5 walking trail along the lake. It is the perfect place to spend the day.
The area has a plethora of diverse restaurants. Many have outdoor seating and
some that are waterfront.
 
Birkdale Village is an open-air mall where people go to meet, shop, eat and just
have fun. You can grab a coffee or wine and just people watch. From upscale dining to casual the options are limitless. And so is the shopping. Catch a movie on one of the 16 screens of the Regal
Theater
 
Within 20 minutes from the Cornelius-Huntersville area, you will be in Uptown
Charlotte, where you can see a Panthers game at Bank of America Stadium, go to
the NASCAR Hall of Fame, see a play or a concert, take the kids to Imaginon or
have a world-class meal at one of the finest restaurants around. There is so much
to do and see in the Queen City.
 
Davidson is a quaint town also on Lake Norman. Take a leisurely stroll down the main
street and stop at the old-fashioned Soda Shop for an ice cream. Maybe you can
catch one of the many outdoor festivals and concerts on the “Green”. And don’t
forget to check out Davidson College. This private liberal arts college was
founded in 1837 and has an amazing campus. Our Home Town Hero, Stephen
Curry, graduated from Davidson College and played for the Davidson Wildcats.
Go Wildcats!
 
If you are a NASCAR lover, Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord is just 20 miles
away. Come and see some of North Carolina’s finest racing teams race, such as
Kyle Busch and Kasey Kahne. If racing isn’t your thing and shopping is, then go to
Concord Mills, North Carolina’s largest outlet mall. So much to do and eat. And
The Bass Pro Shop is really quite impressive, it is worth a visit.
 
There is so much history in the Lake Norman area. In Huntersville, the Latta Plantation is an amazing journey back to the 1800’s plantation life and a little further up the road, there is Rural Hill, a Colonial-era farm.
 
You will find starter homes to waterfront homes valued at over $7 million.  See Lake Realty for homes and lots for sale and for real estate information.
 
I have to say, one of the best things about living in Lake Norman is it’s proximity to whatever you want. You are never more than a few hours from the mountains or the ocean. That being said, why would you ever want to leave with all you have in your backyard?
