If you enjoy life on the water, Lake Norman is the place for you. Popular game fish in the lake include catfish, crappie, bluegill and yellow perch as well as striped, largemouth and white bass hybrids. There are several places around the lake where you can rent kayaks, canoes, fishing equipment, boats and even yachts. Davidson College also owns and operates a “Lake Campus” for students at Lake Norman. Activities on the lake are endless whether you’re wakeboarding, kayaking or just taking the boat out for an evening ride.

The main towns located on the lake are Huntersville, Cornelius and Davidson but also include Troutman, Denver, Mooresville and other surrounding areas. Davidson has lots to offer including Davidson College, home to the area’s most notable alum, Stephen Curry, as well as a quiet yet popular Main Street. Downtown Davidson, located right next to the college, has several restaurants and shops for entertaining its residents. It also hosts the Davidson Farmer’s Market every Saturday morning, where you can walk around and shop at several farm’s locally-grown food stands. Davidson’s annual North Mecklenburg Christmas Parade is held every December and includes local dance companies, sports teams and other well-known organizations as the day’s entertainment.

You can also bring your kids to Huntersville’s Discovery Place KIDS located conveniently in downtown Huntersville. Birkdale Village is another hot spot in Huntersville and is home to a movie theater, several clothing boutiques, restaurants and regular outdoor festivities.
