Located only 15 minutes from Uptown Charlotte, Lake Norman is the largest man-made lake in North Carolina. Created in the early 1960s, Lake Norman is 34 miles long with over 500 miles of shoreline. Nestled on its shores are a number of small towns including the sister towns of Davidson, Cornelius and Huntersville, all within close proximity to Concord, and Charlotte. 

Davidson

Established in the 1800s, Davidson, a lakeside town named after the college which it was built around, is a true Southern gem. The lake and its attractions draw people to Davidson, but this quaint downtown with shops and restaurants is an attraction all on its own. This pedestrian and bicycle-friendly town is wonderfully inviting, and one can’t help but want to stop and explore this small college town and all it has to offer.

Cornelius

Established in 1905, Cornelius was originally a farming community. After forming Lake Norman, Cornelius became a lakeside town, with a variety of parks, attractions, restaurants, and shopping for residents and visitors alike. Today, Cornelius boasts some of Lake Norman’s most beautiful homes in some of the most exclusive waterfront locations, epitomizing the word “luxury”.

Huntersville

Incorporated in the late 1800s, Huntersville has gone from a small community of milling and farming to a big town that is still growing today. Minutes from the shores of Lake Norman and bordering Charlotte, Huntersville is booming! Retail, business, and restaurants continue to move to the Huntersville area. Mixed-use developments like Birkdale Village have made Huntersville a progressive town with a multitude of new housing options. The thriving historic downtown recently added a Discovery Place Kids museum, and residents are in close proximity to recreational amenities like Lake Norman, the Carolina Raptor Center, and the Latta Plantation Nature Preserve.
