We went boating on a beautiful day on Lake Norman. Our Grandkids enjoyed tubing and we enjoyed their obvious delight. We ate lunch at a place of the lake and the weather was perfect.

As a native of Lake Norman I can tell you its a true Lake Lifestyle of urban professionals. As the suburb of Charlotte we are the best place to live and play after working in the city! Once you're hooked there's no going back with a doable commute from downtown. Climate is mild and the Sun is shining! Affordable lake... More

Lovely place, the sand bar is crazy, but around the lake is quiet and peace. Nice warm water for swimming. The sad think is, that there are no good public beaches, just one which is always full of people.

First time coming to this area and looking to relocate from NJ. So what better place to visit we thought. So much information on the entire state of NC and Donna and Joan were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Left with lots of stuff!! Southern hospitality indeed!

In town from Ft. Lauderdale, FL and was brought to the lake with family who live in the area. Blown away on how nice a lake could be with such a variety of things to do. Swim, fish or enjoy the many type of boating options that are available. Don't have a boat? No problem...rent one! You can rent different... More
