4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

Lake Norman is a fabulous area for families. So much to do and very safe. There are outdoor activities as well as indoor recreation. Tons of shopping and restaurants too.

“Peaceful and safe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Lake Norman has over 500 miles of shoreline. You can rent boats to tour all the many coves and enjoy the beautiful lake front properties. There are several restaurants you can visit by boat as well as by land. The Lake touches many different counties. Only about 35 miles north of Charlotte it is an easy day trip if you are visiting Charlotte. The cities that surround the laks afford a choice for lodging and each has it's own character.
If you are a NASCAR fan many race team shops are in Mooresville, and there is a good Racing Museum as well.

“Best place in NC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

What a beautiful lake! While not much activity on a chilly fall day, it's certainly worth visiting. Try the Rusty Rudder for a classic lake-side bar/restaurant.

“Lake Norman”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

What a beautiful man made lake. It has a multitude of drive up marinas with outdoor eating available to boaters and autos alike. I was most impressed with the beauty surrounding the lake. Nearby is the new Truno National Golf Club which is also a must see.
