Your Introduction to Charlotte - the Heart of the New South©

Lake Norman | Ghost Walks, Farmers Markets and More!

September 13th, 2012 Listed Under: Community Reports, Huntersville

Lake Norman Living

The Lake Norman area offers a unique living experience- One part suburb, (nearby Charlotte), one part resort, and one part college town… where else can take a Ghost walk one day, stop in to a waterfront wine shop, and water ski or wake board from late April through October? Lake Norman is the largest fresh water lake in North Carolina, a boater and angler’s playground. Did I mention catching a Division I basketball game in the winter, or taking part of the public lectures at Davidson College?

If you live in Huntersville, Cornelius, Davidson, or Mooresville, you are just a short trip from one to the other by car, or boat!  They are connected by Lake Norman, and by Interstate 77.  The longest distance is from Mooresville at the top of Lake Norman (Exits 33 and 36)to Huntersville (Exit 23)  in lower Lake Norman, and that is ten miles on I-7 7, with Cornelius and Davidson in between!

Davidson, home to Davidson College is the cultural center of the lake area. There is community theatre  in Davidson, regular outdoor concerts on the 1st and 3rd Sundays, the famed Soda Shop straight from the 1950’s, and Ghost tours through old Davidson.

Birkdale Village in Huntersville ( Exit 25) quickly became the destination for upscale shopping and dining when it opened a decade ago.  This mixed use shopping area features street level shops with apartments above, and a single family community within walking distance creating a walk friendly environment for those who live there, and those who want to shop there.

Restaurants include the popular Brixx Pizza, the terrific local favorite Dressler’s, Zoe’s Kitchen for a healthy lunch and of course Starbucks.  (apologies to the other 6-8 not mentioned!)  Shop at American Eagle, Banana Republic, Gap and Gap Kids, Victoria’s Secret or Williams and Sonoma- without the confining feel and conditioned air of a covered mall.

We love the Lake!
