Goodplace to take a hike or walk your dog and get some exercise. You just take a walk a short distance sit and reflect on the Lake and surroundings.

Excellent to spend a day at the lake. Rent a boat and have fun with family and friends. You can stop at one of many lake restaurants for lunch.

I went there with my family and thought it was going to be a place to swim. The water is shallow and it was up to my waist and I am on 5 '2...I was disappointed.

We love visiting Lake Norman. It's perfect for boating, wake-surfing, and jet skiing. It can get crowded in the summer and on the weekends, but it's always fun!

The lake is amazing, so peaceful. Really nice photo opportunities. We rented a cabin nearby and had the greatest time!

We were there for a visit with friends we made when my parents had a house there. It was very hot that week but the water was still cool. Not too crowded or alot of boats on the lake. Really laid back and friendly people!

Visiting from Norway, we payed Lake Norman a visit. It was big, beautiful and all in all a nice place to rest your eyes on :) Be sure to pack your picnic basket and swimming suit if it's warm!

Try Airbnb or VRBO if you are looking to rent a house. If you specifically want something right on the water make sure and specify that in your search. Good luck, and enjoy! It's a beautiful place!

There are no trains or other public transportation from Charlotte to the Lake. It's about 20 miles. You would need to rent a car for flexibility.
