Why Lake Norman NC is Great Place to Relocate

The Charlotte Metro area which encompasses Lake Norman has unsurpassed economic climate and natural beauty and some of the best neighborhoods in the country.

Lake Norman just 18 minutes from downtown Charlotte has great waterfront and golf course communities.Lake Sunset Lake Norman is a beautiful lake with 535 miles of shoreline.

The 30-mile radius that composes Lake Norman is filled with everything you’ll need for work and play. Extending across four counties are four school systems and private school options, recreational activities such as boating, skiing, fishing and golfing and a great variety of dining and shopping.

Lake Norman has several unique and quaint towns - Cornelius, Davidson, Huntersville, Mooresville and Denver.

The great weather is one of the reasons so many choose to move to Lake Norman. Four distinct yet mild seasons: Spring and Fall are absolutely gorgeous with bright blue skies and mild temperatures.

Snow and ice storms are rate and when it does happen, everyone declares a holiday.  Normally, the ice and snow stay on the ground just a couple of days.  Summers are warm and in the end of July and August we have some temperatures approaching 100 with some humidity but not nearly as much as the other southern states.

The bugs, insects, reptiles and wildlife are not an issue here - not like South South Carolina, Georgia and  Florida.  Around Lake Norman, we have some mosquitoes but Duke Energy, who manages the lake keep a control by periodic spraying  and on an as needed basis.

How easy is it to meet and make friends and assimilate into the community?  We like to say, the only people you meet who are not friendly and open are the newcomers.  Once you have lived here a little while, you start to enjoy and appreciate the more laid back friendly atmosphere, like those who relocated before you.  The opportunities are there and if you do not find acceptance, it is because you did not want it.  The only trouble you will have is if you already say, that is not how we did it ______.  You may get a response, we don't do it that way and you are welcomed to move back to ________... just kidding.  That is what they will think but will not say.

Sports of all kinds are a big in the Charlotte Lake Norman area; from organized competitive sports for all age.  You can participate in sailing, water and jet skiing, wind surfing, kite sailing, kayaking, mountain and road biking, tennis, fishing, skateboarding and golf - lots of year round golf.  We also have professional sports, football, baseball, basketball and of course racing of everything from motorcycles to drag racers to sprint cars to NASCAR.

Lake Norman is only 20 miles from downtown Charlotte. Traffic is an issue in the early morning and afternoon commute and people will complain about any commute over 30 minutes. They are working on plans to widen I77.  Highway 16 on the West side of Lake Norman is an easier commute into downtown.  Light rail is also in the works.

We have plenty of subdivisions with  pools, play grounds, golf, tennis, community meeting rooms and lake access or boat slips. We also have rural areas if you want more independence and less restrictions.

Low taxes, inexpensive utilities and the public and private schools systems are prime motivators for selecting the Charlotte Lake Norman area for relocation
