Forbes America’s Top Women Wealth Advisors list is comprised of 1,000 women advisors. It was developed by SHOOK Research and is based on in-person and telephone due diligence meetings to measure factors such as: quality of practice, industry experience, compliance record, assets under management and revenue. Neither UBS Financial Services Inc. nor its employees pay a fee in exchange for these ratings. Past performance is not an indication of future results. Investment performance is not a criterion because client objectives and risk tolerances vary, and advisors rarely have audited performance reports. Rankings are based on the opinions of SHOOK Research, LLC and not indicative of future performance or representative of any one client’s experience. As a firm providing wealth management services to clients, UBS Financial Services Inc. offers investment advisory services in its capacity as an SEC-registered investment adviser and brokerage services in its capacity as an SEC-registered broker-dealer. Investment advisory services and brokerage services are separate and distinct, differ in material ways and are governed by different laws and separate arrangements.

Great Lake Living at Lake Norman

On behalf of the Lake Norman Chamber of Commerce and our more than 800+ active business members, it is a pleasure to welcome you to the Lake Norman region. This past year has presented a tremendous challenge to our nation and region as we have dealt with the COVID-19 pandemic. Our business community has responded to those challenges with determination, resilience, and innovation as we meet the needs of our growing and diverse population. Nestled on the banks of the beautiful Lake Norman, our lake towns offer the perfect opportunity for both visitors and newcomers to enjoy the lake living lifestyle of Cornelius and Mooresville, the smalltown college charm of Davidson, and the vitality of Huntersville with its abundant shopping and recreational facilities. Lake Norman, located just outside of Charlotte, provides visitors and newcomers with a window to the past and an eye to the future. The lake is home to the land where the Catawba Indians once walked, and the early European settlers made their stand. Today, it is home to vibrant business parks and retail centers. New neighborhoods have emerged, and families have relocated to

LAKENORMANCHAMBER.ORG

the region, making Lake Norman one of the fastest growing areas in the country. Our proximity to the cultural opportunities of Charlotte, mixed with the charm and lake living lifestyle of our small towns make Lake Norman a great place to work, live and visit. We encourage you to use this important resource with our buyer’s guide (beginning on page 54) to Shop the Lake and enjoy our diverse array of retailers, shopping centers and restaurants.

History

An innovative idea and a dream The story behind the creation of Lake Norman

Lake Norman enjoys such a popularity and celebration of lake living it’s almost hard to believe it hasn’t always been here. What first started out as a plan to help generate power has turned into an everyday way of life that atracts visitors and newcomers from all over the country. In the early 1900s, James B. Duke, William S. Lee and Dr. W. Gil Wylie envisioned how a series of dams on the Catawba River could literally power the South’s future, in particular the Carolina Piedmont’s future.

THE MCGUIRE NUCLEAR STATION, NAMED FOR DUKE POWER PRESIDENT FROM 1959-1971 W.B. MCGUIRE, BEGAN OPERATING IN 1981. Cowans Ford Dam was built by Duke Power (now Duke Energy) on a historic Revolutionary War battle site. Ground was broken on the project on September 28, 1959. Four years later the dam was complete with a length of 7,387 feet, which includes more than a mile of earthen dam. The concrete portion alone is 1,279 feet long and 130 feet high. Bill Lee, the grandson of William S. Lee and the chairman of Duke Power Company at the time, led this engineering feat. While the complexity of the project seemed at times staggering, not to mention the emotional impact on the community as two river crossings (Sherrill’s Ford and Beatty’s Ford) would be flooded in addition to many original homesites, Lake Norman was the result of a dream (60 years in the making) come true. Often referred to as “The Inland Sea,” Lake Norman offers 520 miles of shoreline (more than North and South 2020-2021

A Product of Lake Norman CURRENTS Magazine

BY LORI K. TATE Carolina’s coasts combined) and is named for Norman Atwater Cocke, a retired Duke Power president. For years, Lake Norman was a weekend getaway destination, as people in the Piedmont would flock to cabins along its shores to get away from every day life. In 1964 Duke Power offered more than 2,600 cottage sites with leases starting at $120 a year. Eventually subdivisions were established, and folks began to live on Lake Norman’s shores full time. Though people started realizing how beautiful and satisfying lake living was, heavy development didn’t take off until the 1990s, as the Charlotte area’s thriving business environment brought more people to the area and the infrastrure was in place to support a larger population. While Lake Norman has more than lived up to its powerproducing expectations, it has also transformed what was once a heavily agricultural and textile community into more of a resort area that attracts a variety of people from around the world. On the north end of the lake, you’ll still find many agricultural pockets untouched by development. If you hit it on the right day, you might even discover a cow or two soaking in the water off the shores of Catawba County. The southern part of the lake attracts many people who make their living in nearby Charlotte. When traffic flows, you can travel from your office in Uptown Charlotte to Lake Norman in approximately 30 to 40 minutes. Not many urban areas offer a lakeside respite so quickly. As power continues to flow from Lake Norman, so do its memories. Ask around and you’re likely to find someone who was around when the lake filled. They’ll remember the Robert E. Lee, the first tour boat on the lake; the 85-pound catfish that won the state record; Outrigger Harbor, the original marina that stood where The Peninsula Yacht Club is today; and how Hurricane Hugo ravaged Lake Norman’s shores in 1989.

Water Safety

Making a Splash Before hitting the water on a personal watercraft, understand the laws Personal Watercraft Law

The N.C. General Assembly enacted a personal watercraft law that took effect Dec. 1, 1999. On June 30th, 2000 this law was amended. Below is a summary of the law:

Who Can Operate a PWC?

• Anyone 14 years old but younger than 26 can operate a PWC if: • they have successfully completed an approved boating safety education course (proof of age and safety course completion must be carried during operation) 
 • they are riding with a person who is at least 18 and is in compliance with the Boating Education Requirement Law (G.S. 75A-16.2) • It is unlawful for the owner of a PWC to knowingly allow a person younger than 16 to operate a PWC unless they have first completed an approved boating safety education course. • It is unlawful for anyone who has temporary or permanent responsibility for a person younger than 16 to knowingly allow that person to operate a PWC unless they have first completed an approved boating safety education course.

PWC Operation

• No one can operate a PWC on state waters between sunset and sunrise. • All PWC riders, passengers and those being towed must wear approved personal flotation devices. • If the PWC is equipped with a lanyard-type engine cut off switch, the lanyard must be worn by the operator at all times. • A PWC must have a rearview mirror or an observer on board besides the operator to legally tow someone on skis or similar device. • PWCs must be operated at all times in a reasonable and prudent manner. Maneuvers that endanger people or property constitute reckless operation. • No person shall operate a personal watercraft on the waters of this State at greater than no-wake speed within 100 feet of an anchored or moored vessel, a dock, pier, swim float, marked swimming area, swimmers, surfers, persons engaged in angling, or any manually operated propelled vessel, unless the personal watercraft is operating

in a narrow channel (see below). • No person shall operate a personal watercraft in a narrow channel (see below) at greater than no-wake speed within 50 feet of an anchored or moored vessel, a dock, pier, swim float, marked swimming area, swimmers, surfers, persons engaged in angling, or any manually operated propelled vessel. • No person shall operate a PWC towing another person on water skis or similar device unless the total number of persons operating, observing, and being towed does not exceed the number of passengers identified by the manufacturer as the maximum safe load for the vessel. Reckless Operation Includes: • Unreasonable or unnecessary weaving through congested boat traffic. • Jumping the wake of a vessel within 100 feet of the vessel or when visibility is obstructed. • Intentionally approaching a vessel in order to swerve at the last moment. • Operating contrary to the “rules of the road.” • Following too closely (see below) to another vessel, including another personal watercraft. Renting PWCs • No one shall rent a PWC to someone under 16 unless that person meets the conditions in the section “Who Can Operate a PWC?” • A minimum of $300,000 insurance must be carried on each PWC that is rented to the public. Narrow Channel • A “narrow channel” means a segment of the waters of the State 300 feet or less in width. Following too Closely The term “following too closely” means proceeding in the same direction and operating at a speed in excess of 10 miles per hour when approaching within 100 feet to the rear or 50 feet to the side of another vessel that is underway unless that vessel is operating in a narrow channel, in which case a personal watercraft may operate at the speed and flow of other vessel traffic.

THE RESORT LIFESTYLE IS ALIVE AND WELL AT LAKE NORMAN.

A Happy Home Lake Norman offers real estate for every stage of life BY RENEE ROBERSON

Each year, more and more people discover the benefits of moving to the Lake Norman area, including moderate temperatures, access to an impressive food and culture scene and endless opportunities for outdoor activities. There’s truly something for every homebuyer, and the towns of Huntersville, Davidson and Cornelius each offer their own set of charms.

Small-Town Charm, History and Access to Commerce In Cornelius, some residents choose homes because of their proximity to the lake or their amenities, such as The Peninsula, with its walking and running trails, shopping and 104-acre Jetton Park. There’s also Antiquity, with craftsmen-

style homes and townhomes designed for residents in all stages of life — from couples to growing families to empty nesters. Small 1/4-acre parks are scattered throughout the neighborhood, which also features a large community pool surrounded by natural woods and a covered bridge that transports residents into what feels like another time period. With ground breaking this year on the Cain Center for the Arts, which will be the area’s only public arts community center, Old Town Cornelius is becoming more of a centralized arts and culture hub with its breweries, street festivals and local storefronts. Downtown Davidson remains a popular place to shop boutiques, eat at awardwinning restaurants such as Kindred, or watch a basketball A Product of Lake Norman CURRENTS Magazine

game at the Baker Sports Complex on Davidson College’s campus. Downtown Huntersville has also worked to create an attractive area of commerce tied to downtown’s Discovery Place Kids Huntersville location, as well as providing a home to numerous festivals throughout the year. Residents enjoy being close to retail centers such as the popular Birkdale Village, and across the street, Birkdale Landing is currently being developed to house more restaurants and retail and office spaces.

Upscale Homes in Natural and Urban Settings In Davidson, residents are choosing to renovate older homes close to the downtown area while still maintaining their original character. They are also seeking out newer neighborhoods that offer more modern amenities, such as the new West Branch neighborhood off Davidson-Concord Road, with both single-family homes and townhomes. Homebuyers in this area can take advantage of a spacious community pool and several miles of natural greenway trails offered through the Town of Davidson. River Run remains a popular neighborhood with a manicured golf course, fitness center, swimming and tennis facilities and a greenway for walking, running and biking. Just a few miles away is Runnymede, where homebuyers will find a charming neighborhood with homes 2020-2021

on mature lots that range in size up to three acres. Residents also have access to equestrian facilities and trails as part of their amenities. There’s also The Preserve at Narrow Passage, a new community in Davidson off Shearer Road. Situated on 59 acres of land, buyers can choose to custom build homes from cottage villages to custom-crafted luxury homes made from a variety of allnatural materials from three different home builders. Thirty-seven acres of the neighborhood’s preserve are designated as conservation spaces, with fields, streams and wetlands protected from development. In Huntersville, buyers can choose homes

on large mature lots, and homes in the Birkdale community, with close proximity to shopping and the gold course, have continued to increase in value.

Retiring at the Lake Communities for residents 55 and older also attract a variety of homebuyers who are looking to downsize but also want access to community events and luxury amenities. Trilogy Lake Norman in Denver is one such place--offering singlefamily detached homes up to 3,300 square feet. It features the Twin Mills Club, which operates as a private club for every member of the Trilogy community, with indoor and outdoor pools, kayaks, bikes, other outdoor gear and more. There’s also a boat club that members can access in close proximity to the community. In Huntersville, those looking to retire can choose from places like The Courtyards at Kinnamon Park and The Courtyards of Huntersville, both located right down the street from Birkdale Village. Each neighborhood provides a robust calendar of activities active senior citizens can enjoy while meeting new neighbors. Cornelius is home to the popular Bailey’s Glen, with its ranch-style floor plans, numerous amenities, on-site lifestyle director and close proximity to restaurants, shopping and breweries.

Education

The School Stamp of Approval

The best passports to the future through Lake Norman education BY EMILY THOMAS

The Lake Norman area offers many ways to customize your child’s education, and that’s a good thing because every child is different. Award-winning public and private schools provide considerable and diverse choices here, as families can select from schools that emphasize the arts and STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), as well as Montessori and faith-based curriculums. Area high schools offer International Baccalaureate programs, Advanced Placement courses and many other options. With all of these choices, you are sure to find the right fit for your child. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools offers many elementary and middle schools in addition to three high schools in the area — Hopewell and North Mecklenburg in Huntersville and William Amos Hough in Cornelius. North Mecklenburg is noted for its International Baccalaureate (IB) program, while Hopewell offers a comprehensive curriculum including the Cambridge International Program. U.S. News & World Report ranked Hough the 38th best high school in North Carolina as of April 2020. The three schools offer extensive Advanced Placement courses. J.M. Alexander Middle School in Huntersville is categorized as an IB World School, and transferred its academics to a brand new building in 2017. Bailey Middle School in Corne-

lius opened in 2006 with the goal to “Inspire Learners and Empower Leaders.” The school has now adopted the “Leader in Me” program which is based on the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People philosophy. www.cms.k12.nc.us The Mooresville Graded School District provides another fantastic public school option, ranked as the 8th best school district in North Carolina. The district is known nationally for its comprehensive digital plan, as it has distributed more than 4,400 laptop computers to all 2nd- through 12th- grade students and licensed staff across the district. It also provides iPads for use at school for all students in kindergarten and first grade.

Dr. Mark Edwards, the former superintendent of Mooresville Graded School District, was named the 2013 AASA (American Association of School Administrators) National Superintendent of the Year. During that same year President Barack Obama visited the school district to see its success firsthand. Dr. Stephen Mauney now serves as the superintendent of the award-winning school district. http://www.mgsd.k12.nc.us Also serving the Lake Norman area are some of the Iredell-Statesville Schools. Lake Norman High School in Mooresville is a newer high school in the system that was ranked the 37th best high school in the state as of April 2020, according to U.S. News & A Product of Lake Norman CURRENTS Magazine

2020-2021


World Report. Some area elementary and middle schools were also named Honor Schools of Excellence or Schools of Excellence. In addition, Brady Johnson, superintendent of Iredell-Statesville Schools, received the 2014 A. Craig Phillips North Carolina Superintendent of the Year award. The school system is among the top 25 percent of North Carolina’s 116 districts and has a graduation rate of 88.1 percent. www.issnc.org

Public charter options

For other public options, families can consider charter schools, for which tax dollars provide some of the funding. These schools are required to have no discrimination, no religious associations and no tuition. If charter schools have more applicants than available slots, they must use open lotteries to fill remaining spots. Community School of Davidson is a public charter school offering grades K-12.

Business

Living Up to Its Rep The Lake Norman area attracts businesses on a global scale BY AARON GARCIA

JOE GIBBS RACING IN HUNTERSVILLE EMPLOYEES APPROXIMATELY 650 PEOPLE.

Our area has built quite the worldwide reputation as a great place to work. In the past two years companies from Germany, Spain and Switzerland have planted flags in the Lake Norman area, injecting more than $110 million in investments between three companies alone. These, along with other newcomers, have continued to bolster and diversify an economic identity that signal great things ahead for Huntersville, Cornelius and Davidson. Much of that growth, at least in terms of new, reddirt construction, will be felt in Huntersville’s The Park business complex. In March 2020, Saertex multicom LP announced plans to invest more than $20 million in a new manufacturing and warehouse facility. The expansion will allow the company to add 45 new jobs over the next five years. Prior to Saertex’s announcement, Oerlikon, a Swiss

30

Great Lake Living at Lake Norman

tech conglomerate, invested $62 million to build a new 105,000 square-foot facility in the park, which will create 93 new jobs. Ninety employees will eventually fill German stamping and coating giant Kurz’s new 125,000-squarefoot, $30 million North American headquarters. Spanish packaging company Daumar also chose the complex as its new North American base of operations and will fill 40 jobs to work out of a 120,000-square-foot facility worth $21 million. The new additions, along with other foreign companies already calling Lake Norman home, such as Daetwyler (Switzerland), Nutec (Mexico) and Saertex (Germany) have created an international advanced manufacturing hub in the southern Lake Norman area. Ryan McDaniels, head of Lake Norman Economic Development, explains that such an identity has a way of snowballing and creating even more growth, similar to how companies such as

Rubbermaid, Yokohama and MSC moved into the area to be near Davidson-based Ingersoll Rand and Mooresville’s Lowe’s Home Improvement headquarters. “A lot of these companies are able to take advantage of a workforce that may have been attracted to the area because of [a certain company],” explains McDaniel, “but now they have the opportunity to move to a different company and not relocate.” As valuable as these acquisitions have been for our area, none of these companies will crack the list of Lake Norman’s biggest employers, which has remained relatively unchanged over the past few years. Ingersoll Rand continues to lead the way with 1,600 employees on its Davidson campus, followed by Davidson College with 750 and MSC (350). McGuire Nuclear Station tops the list for Huntersville at 1,200 employees, followed by Novant Health (690), Metrolina Greenhouses (650),

Joe Gibbs Racing (650) and Rubbermaid (400). With 130 workers, Financial Independence Group remains the largest employer for Cornelius. McDaniels pointed to the area’s workforce as a main reason the area continues to boom, but also understands that value is lost if those workers are lured away. He said projects such as the Northcross Road extension — as well as proposals to revitalize the downtown areas of Huntersville and Cornelius — will go a long way in making sure Lake Norman-area residents are happy when they leave their new offices, too. “That helps us a lot because that allows us to attract more talent, which is so important right now,” says McDaniels. “One of the biggest drivers [of economic development success] is having access to a talented workforce.”

Eats

Sweet & Savory Whatever your mood, there’s something for every palate BY CATHY SWINEY WITH ADDITIONAL REPORTING BY RENEE ROBERSON In recent years, the Lake Norman area has morphed into a hot bed of fabulous restaurants, and new places are constantly opening. Whether you make a reservation or simply seat yourself, you’ll find plenty of eateries that satisfy your cravings. Davidson is a great place to start, as Southern Living ranked the college town 10th on The South’s Best Food Towns List 2019. One of the jewels in Davidson’s crown is Kindred. Owned by Joe and Katy Kindred, the restaurant was named “The South’s Best Restaurant in North Carolina” by Southern Living in 2018, and it was ranked eighth on Bon Appetit’s list of best new American restaurants of 2015. The Kindreds also own a lakeside eatery called Hello, Sailor that offers a contemporary and sophisticated nod to fish camps. But the Kindreds aren’t the only game in town, as diners In the Lake Norman can also find the cuisine of many cultures. Menus featuring Mexican, Latin American, Caribbean, Japanese, Chinese, Thai, Italian, Greek, Irish and Indian food join all manner of American food. The waters of the lake inspire relaxing and fun-filled times, and that mood carries over into many restaurants. More often than not, diners are casually dressed, children’s favorites are offered and prices are affordable. Many places also have outdoor seating, so you can enjoy your meal and the fresh air when the weather is favorable. More and more chefs in the area are building relationships with local farmers and visiting farmers’ markets to secure fresh, in-season ingredients for their menus. Diners can taste the difference. Cheeses for appetizers, greens for salads, seafood and poultry for entrees, vegetables for side dishes, and fruits for cobblers are just a sampling of what can be found. Restaurants like Flatiron Kitchen + Taphouse and The Pickled Peach take pride in not only serving the

32

Great Lake Living at Lake Norman

freshest ingredients available but also in supporting the community. A walk through pedestrian friendly Birkdale Village in Huntersville will tempt your taste buds with all kinds of dining options. You’ll feel like you’ve hit the jackpot with casual restaurants offering Asian fusion, wood-fired pizzas, Mexican street fare, upscale burgers, tasty barbecue and traditional American favorites, as well as a fancy establishment specializing in steaks and seafood. Just a few miles north at Exit 23, places like Verde Mexican Nuevo Latin Fusion and Famous Toastery beckon. North Carolina is noted for its barbecue, and the lake area is home to several ‘cue joints that have legendary followings. Slow-smoked pork with sauce served in squeeze bottles on the side is the way to go. Don’t forget to try a side of Brunswick Stew or mac and cheese (considered a vegetable here), and a serving of banana pudding for dessert. Midwood Smokehouse at Birkdale Village in Huntersville is the latest ‘cue place, and its macaroni and cheese was named the “The Best Mac ‘n Cheese in North Carolina” by Southern Living. Ready to dress up a bit for dinner? Fine dining options exist and do not disappoint. Those that do set a dressed-up table with white tablecloths and candles offer stellar menus that are worth the care you took with your attire. Whether tucked in a shopping center or occupying a restored downtown building, you can expect the atmosphere to be cozy and intimate, the service to be efficient, and the food to be well prepared without being fussy. And if you’re looking to finish things off with dessert, Bakery 28 in Cornelius features creations by owner/pastry chef Keli Marks, who has created desserts for three former U.S. presidents. Or, for a more casual affair, visit the Cookies with an Accent food truck in Huntersville for fresh baked cookies you can turn into ice cream sandwiches. A Product of Lake Norman CURRENTS Magazine

A Celebration of Craft

LKN Breweries are adventurous and engaged

BY RENEE ROBERSON

DAVID AND ALLISON HAMME OPENED LOST WORLDS BREWING IN CORNELIUS THIS PAST SPRING. Into the craft beer scene? Lake Norman has you covered, from breweries that offer plenty of space to congregate and try out the best in creative concoctions. Breweries and taprooms offer the perfect opportunity to spread out and socialize, play a game of cornhole and catch up with a group of friends. Local breweries enjoy experimenting with new flavors and varieties, and the customers are more than happy to try them out. Not only that, LKN breweries can often be found supporting local nonprofits and hosting health and wellness events. Because the nature of their business is portable, breweries are sure to appear at festivals, street fairs and outdoor movies and concerts. Huntersville’s Primal Brewery is the brainchild of two local residents who first experimented with home brewing with their friends, family and neighbors. The brewery now sits on more than 3 acres and you’ll often find patrons gathered on the picnic tables outside and grabbing dinner from a variety of food trucks. Also located in Huntersville, Crafty Beer Guys offers a selection of beer plus high-end wine and homebrewing

supplies. Featuring more than 350 labels of beer and 150 selections of wines, you’ll often find patrons relaxing at the end of the day on the covered front porch or outdoor patio. Owners Kristian Pedersen and Shawn Richards also offer their support to a number of event sponsorships and initiatives throughout North Carolina. Cornelius-based D-9 Brewing Company was founded by two engineers and a doctor in 2014, so it’s no surprise that the brewery’s beer has garnered several awards (especially for its sour beers) and often hosts food trucks and popular weekly “Yoga and a Beer!” class taught by an experienced instructor. Eleven Lakes Brewing in Cornelius specializes in using a small batch brewing process to create brews such as Apricot Habanero, Coconut Porter, River Otter Red. They also offer live entertainment, the Ales and Autos car club, weekly yoga sessions and support area food trucks. Ass Clown Brewing is another establishment that started out as a homebrewing venture. Owner Matt Glidden isn’t afraid to play around with ingredients like ghost chilies

and boysenberries, and offers more than 200 plus rotating beers with 31 different taps in the tasting room. New on the scene this year is Lost Worlds Brewing, located in Cornelius. Owners David and Allison Hamme wanted to create a brewery with an “explorers club of yesteryear.” As a family who loves adventurous travels, they used their love of history, treasure hunts and travel for the concept of the brewery. Patrons can expect signature “basecamp” beers, lower-alcohol varieties, tableside service from a variety of local restaurants, Wednesday night yoga in the beer garden, and more.

Get Outside

Take it All In Greenways offer residents much needed time in nature BY LORI K. TATE

THE LAKE NORMAN AREA OFFERS A VARIETY OF GREENWAYS TO EXPLORE.

Throughout the trail, you’ll find various attractions, both historical and commercial. Photography courtesy of Carolina Thread Trail.

Being outside is part of life in the Lake Norman area. In the northern part of Mecklenburg County, Huntersville, Cornelius and Davidson have their fair share of greenways with more to come. The greenways were the saving grace for many area residents during the first few months of 2020’s pandemic. Troy Fitzsimmons, director of the Town of Cornelius Parks, Arts Recreation & Culture department, says there are many reasons that the popularity of greenways is growing, with one of the biggest being that it’s an unstructured activity. “You can walk, you can run, you can bike,” he says. “With today’s busy lifestyles, it’s hard to go do organized activities; the time may not be right. But with greenways, you can do it in the morning, afternoon, evening; it doesn’t matter. You don’t need to be with a bunch of people to play a sport.” Another attractive aspect of greenways is their convenience. The Caldwell Station Creek Greenway, covering 2.6 miles and connecting Bailey Road Park to Highway 21, runs up against the Heritage Green and Oakhurst subdivisions, making access to the trail just a few steps away from residents’ homes. The trail also backs up to Poole Place, a Habitat for Humanity neighborhood.

TWENTY-TWO MILES OF THE CAROLINA THREAD TRAIL’S MORE THAN 260 COMPLETED MILES RUN THROUGH THE LAKE NORMAN AREA.

Carolina Thread Trail On many of the area’s greenways, you’ll see markers that read Carolina Thread Trail. In fact, 22 miles of the Carolina Thread Trail’s more than 260 completed miles run through the Lake Norman area. The trail runs through 15 counties in North and South Carolina. The Lake Norman section of the Catawba River Blueway (part of the Carolina Thread Trail) is approximately 31 miles long, making it possible to paddle part of the trail.

36

Great Lake Living at Lake Norman

As greenways continue to grow in popularity, municipalities are working to make more of them a reality. In fall 2016 the Richardson Greenway, part of the Carolina Thread Trail, opened in Troutman. The Troutman Depot, home to the local farmers market during the summer, is located on this rail-to-trail conversion. A Product of Lake Norman CURRENTS Magazine

Happenings in Huntersville In Huntersville, a tunnel that will run under I-77 connecting downtown Huntersville with Rosedale Park is almost complete. A proposed Lower McDowell Creek Greenway west of the Wynfield subdivision is in the development stages that would connect the Upper McDowell Creek Greenway, which runs along Birkdale in Huntersville and create seven miles of trail. On a larger scale, the proposed Mooresville-Charlotte Trail, would offer a 30-mile bicycle and pedestrian corridor running north/south along 2020-2021

A Product of Lake Norman CURRENTS Magazine

Highway 115. In Cornelius, construction on the South Prong Rocky River Greenway is underway, and in 2020, construction will begin on the JV Washam to Smithville Park Greenway. The town is also partnered with the Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation Department to construct a half-mile South Bailey Road Greenway in 2019. This trail will link the Caldwell Station Creek Greenway via the existing Bailey Road Multi-Use Path to the South Prong Rocky River Greenway trail, creating almost nine miles of trail connecting the Northcross shopping

center area to Antiquity. Perhaps the jewel in the mix is the Emerald Necklace concept that will create 12 miles of greenway or multiuse paths around Cornelius. “It would tie in businesses with recreation areas, [offer] civic areas for people to congregate, just really tie in the town,� explains Fitzsimmons, adding that the idea was partly inspired by the Swamp Rabbit Trail, a 19.9-mile multiuse rail trail in Greenville, South Carolina. In the meantime, residents can enjoy the greenways that are in place, as they take a therapeutic time out in nature. Great Lake Living at Lake Norman

Near and Far Fun awaits not far from Lake Norman

MANY CONSIDER CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA THE SOUTH’S CULTURAL CAPITAL.

Everyone can use a change of (even the best) scenery every once in a while. That said, mountain, beach and shopping destinations abound in North and South Carolina — and all are well within driving distance of Lake Norman. Whether you want a quick jaunt a couple of hours up the Blue Ridge Parkway or a leave-your-cares-behind retreat to one of the many beaches along the Carolina coast, Lake Norman is perfectly positioned as a home base for all manner of Carolina adventures.

Myrtle Beach

Drive Time: 4 hours Few places are as hot come summer as Myrtle Beach, S.C. (and we’re not just talking about the temperature). Myrtle Beach boasts miles and miles of beautiful beaches, hotels at every price point, hundreds of shops and nearly 2,000 restaurants. And if you’re a golfer, few places can offer more than the Myrtle Beach area does all year long. More than 14 million people visit Myrtle Beach each year. Families love the carefree summertime atmosphere the beach offers, and with amusement parks, theaters and nightclubs in the mix, there’s truly something for everyone in Myrtle Beach.

Charleston

Drive Time: 3.5 hours Few destinations anywhere are as splendid as Charleston, S.C. Make one trip to this charming southern city and you’re sure to be back. Charleston is located on the coast

and is considered by many to be the South’s cultural capital. Dining in Charleston is world class, and the city’s dozens of restaurants offer Lowcountry menus that simply can’t be beat. Here you’ll find beautiful gardens wedged between historic pastel homes — many of which were built before the Civil War (which started in nearby Fort Sumter). Beachgoers are also at home in Charleston. Folly Beach, Isle of Palms, Kiawah Island, Seabrook Island and Sullivan’s Island offer a variety of fun for those wanting to hit the sand.

Asheville

Drive Time: 2.5 hours Asheville is western North Carolina’s largest city and serves as the business, cultural, shopping and dining hub of the mountains. Asheville is known across the world for being a mountain gem, as it has an arts scene filled with concerts, festivals, art galleries and performances. The city is located in the heart of the Blue Ridge and is known for its natural beauty. The Blue Ridge Parkway, which brushes Asheville, attracts motorists each October when the trees begin to turn. While the historic Biltmore Estate, which sits on the city’s outskirts is a favorite destination for those who love spring flowers and beautiful holiday decor.

Boone

Drive Time: 2 hours Boone is another North Carolina mountain destination Lake Norman residents can easily reach for a fun day trip A Product of Lake Norman CURRENTS Magazine

or long weekend. Some of the Blue Ridge’s highest peaks are located in the Boone area. It’s another favorite for those interested in viewing the beautiful fall foliage. Many bed and breakfasts beckon visitors year round, and the town is home to Appalachian State University. During the holidays, dozens of Christmas tree farms open for business, so families can pick out the perfect tree and make lifelong memories in the process.

Seagrove

Drive Time: Just under 2 hours Seagrove itself is a tiny town in North Carolina’s Randolph County. But combined with with several nearby towns, Seagrove is considered by some to be the pottery capital of the United States. Pottery here dates back to before the Revolutionary War, and it is still celebrated today. The North Carolina Pottery Center is located in Seagrove and offers visitors both permanent and traveling exhibitions, as well as a museum shop and periodic

live demonstrations. Festivals throughout the year make it even easier to see all of the region’s talent.

Hickory/High Point/ Thomasville

Distance from the Lake Norman area (Huntersville) to Several Major Cities New York City: 9 hours 50 minutes; 630 miles.

Drive Time — Hickory: 45 minutes Drive Time — High Point and Thomasville: 90 minutes North Carolina has long been considered the furniture capital of the United States, and no three cities are more tied to furniture than Hickory, High Point and Thomasville. Despite recent trends toward moving production overseas, some of the best-known brands in the furniture industry remain headquartered in these three cities. In fact, some of the most extravagant furniture you’ll ever see moves through these areaa. A drive through the heart of Hickory on Highway 321 shows just how many outlets still sell locally made goods. High Point hosts a twice-ayear furniture market that attracts thousands of industry buyers from all over the world.

Philadelphia: 8 hours 30 minutes; 534 miles. Washington D.C.: 6 hours 20 minutes; 393 miles. Atlanta: 4 hours; 254 miles. Savannah: 4 hours 30 minutes; 265 miles. Jacksonville, Florida: 6 hours 15 minutes; 400 miles. Miami: 11 hours 40 minutes; 750 miles. Nashville: 6 hours 45 minutes; 425 miles.

The Towns of Lake Norman

When we first moved to the area, we picked Huntersville because it was halfway between Uptown where I was working, and Mooresville where my husband’s office is located. More than a decade later and evolving from a couple without kids to a family of four, the location still fits. Huntersville continues to grow rapidly, and it’s the bustle I love. There is always something to hustle to… from fishing spots and boat launches—we’ve got that. For example, the town has Lake Norman Community Sailing, where residents can purchase family passes that give you access to affordable and accessible water activities. The Carolina Renaissance Festival and Fairy House Festival—we’ve got those too. Live outdoor concerts on the greens, expanding greenways, and fresh farmer’s markets—check! There are great neighborhoods at lots of different price points, and topnotch schools, from public, private and charter. We have pools and splash pads that have produced both swim champs and happy memories, cyclists

are everywhere, and there are plenty of pooch-friendly patios. The community is diverse with everything from the headquarters of national franchises to plenty of places to slow down with friends and enjoy the sunset on a bench by the lake. For foodies, Huntersville’s game is strong, with mainstays like Eez Fusion & Sushi and local fave La Unica, and hand-churned ice cream parlors and cupcakeries. We’ve got living history, birds of prey, horse and flower farms and breweries galore. On the enrichment end, Huntersville also has the amazing North County Regional Library, which was recently renovated, and also the spacious Discovery Place KIDS in the heart of downtown. Numerous parks and greenways that help us stay in shape, including Latta Plantation, which has a nature preserve for hiking, canoeing and horseback rides. Annually, there’s fall festivals, as well as the Loch Norman Highland Games. Rural Hill’s Sheepdog Trials and Dog

The Towns of Lake Norman

Cornelius An intersection of community and culture BY LORI K. TATE

OLD TOWN CORNELIUS OFFERS QUAINT SHOPS AND RESTAURANTS. Living in Charlotte when I was younger, I dreamed about one day living at Lake Norman. I grew up around water, so it was only natural that that’s where I would want to make my adult home. When I met my husband, I was thrilled to learn that he grew up at Lake Norman and loved the water just as much as I did, so it’s no surprise that we chose to raise our family here. I grew up in a small town, so it’s important to me to know my neighbors and my community. The size of Cornelius and the friendliness of its people make this an easy task. It’s rare that I don’t run into someone I know at the Fresh Market or at the always fun ‘Tawba Walk Arts & Music Festival. People always want to know how you’re doing and how they can help if you’re not doing well. Speaking of the ‘Tawba Walk Arts & Music Festival, Old Town Cornelius has become a cornerstone of the celebration of arts and culture in the downtown area. With fundraising underway for the Cain Center for the Arts, unique boutiques, the public library, food truck, arts and music festivals, there’s plenty to do for families and residents on any given day. What makes Cornelius special is how it successfully marries down-home goodness with sophistication. This is a town where churches and fire departments still hold annual barbecues and where members of the Rotary Club cook pancakes to raise money for noble causes. It’s also a place that offers the type of luxury amenities that attract the likes of corporate leaders, as well as professional athletes. Not many places can do both well — Cornelius does. Then there’s the variety of things to do here. In Cornelius

I can take my children to all sorts of parks and festivals. I can take them on a lakeside picnic at Jetton Park. I can even attend a cutting-edge play at The Warehouse Performing Arts Center. And despite how young they are, they too appreciate how glorious a Lake Norman sunset can be, as they often spot it before I do. Whether you’re on a boat or on the shore, it will take your breath away, and it’s never the same. As for me, I try to paddleboard as often as I can, and when I’m not in the water, you can find me searching for treasures at FlairTRADE Consign, Luna’s or Home Heart & Soul. All three of these places are locally owned, and you can bet the clerks will remember your name if you visit more than once. I’m happy to raise my children in such a nurturing and vibrant environment, and I’m even happier to call Cornelius my home. Looks like my hunch about living at Lake Norman was right.

Davidson Abundant Historic Charm

DOWNTOWN DAVIDSON OFFERS THE BEST OF SMALL TOWN CHARM.

With the perfect blend of small-town charm and worldly sophistication in a lakeside country setting, Davidson is often named one of the best places to live in North Carolina. Mature oaks and majestic pines shade an eclectic mix of historic homes and modern neighborhoods lining this little haven. And at the heart of the Village Green, the public library, Davidson College and a string of century-old storefronts stand as welcoming sentries. Founded in 1837, Davidson College is a private liberal arts institution that offers educational and entertainment opportunities. You can attend live performances at Duke Family Performance Hall, enjoy exciting basketball games at Baker Sports Complex and explore the Belk Visual Arts Center. Art comes in many forms here. Wooden Stone Gallery has an excellent array of unusual handmade treasures while the Casual Creative features modern folk art. You’ll find great gifts at Honeysuckle Home, inspired items at Moxie Mercantile, the latest fashion at MINE by sandy and Wild Cats’ gear at Davidson College Store. And it’s hard to leave the Village Store empty-handed. When hunger hits, there are many options to suit your palette. Grab a burger and chocolate soda at The Soda Shop, Davidson’s favorite diner since 1951. Savor a handcrafted sandwich and soup at The Pickled Peach or daily specials at Famous Toastery. Sample the award-winning fare at Kindred. Or travel the epicurean world of Mestizo’s, Carrburritos Taqueria, Il Bosco or Sabi. Other great options include Brickhouse Tavern, Flatiron Kitchen + Taphouse, Mandolino’s Artisan Pizza and The Crazy Pig for BBQ. Enjoy breakfast at The Egg or eat crabcakes at lakeside North Harbor Café. There’s something to satisfy everyone in Davidson. Once refueled, you won’t have to wander far for outdoor adventure. Under a canopy of Carolina Blue skies, you can walk, run or bike at the Davidson Greenway or woodland trails of Fisher Farm, and paddleboard, sail or fish on nearby Lake Davidson or Lake Norman.

A VENDOR AT THE DAVIDSON FALL ART FESTIVAL. In Davidson, neighbors gather for seasonal events, from April’s Art on the Green to Town Day in May and a summer series of picnic-style Concerts on the Green. For the annual Halloween March, hundreds of princesses and superheroes line up for goodies from local merchants. In early December, relish the holiday spirit with horse-drawn carriages, strolling carolers and musicians and gift vendors on the Green, all in a Dickens-like atmosphere at our popular Christmas In Davidson. Yet there’s something to celebrate every day here. Stop at Summit or Good Drip Coffee for a latte, grab a matinee at Our Town Cinemas Café & Taphouse and enjoy a sweet treat at Ben & Jerry’s, Whit’s Frozen Custard or Davidson Chocolate Co. Meditate on the red-brick labyrinth at the college’s peace garden or stretch yourself at Yoga on Davidson. Avid readers won’t find a more thoughtful collection than at Main Street Books. Take in a play at Armour Street Theatre and then toast any occasion at Davidson Wine Co. Looking for a beautiful bouquet or fresh meat and produce? The Davidson Farmer’s Market features items from more than 35 farmers. You’ll spot old friends and make new ones here on Saturday mornings. When I count all the reasons I love living in Davidson with my family, it’s hard for me to imagine a better place to call home.

History has it that one of the oldest churches in the Lake Norman area began when a group of Christians gathered on the bank of a creek under a group of trees they called “Ramah Grove.” While the first log structure housing the church was constructed in 1783, the current sanctuary used for Ramah Grove Presbyterian Church was built in 1881. The church still stands today. Hopewell Presbyterian Church off Beatties Ford Road in Huntersville also has a rich history, having been officially founded in 1762. Davidson College Presbyterian Church was founded in 1837. Houses of worship remain an important part of the community, and many have taken root throughout the towns over the years. In Cornelius, Bethel Presbyterian Church was founded in 1828 and still

flourishes in the lakeside town as part of the Presbyterian movement called ECO: A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians. The community is also home to Grace Covenant Church, which started out as Cornelius Tabernacle under the leadership of Dr. S.K. and Emily Clanton in 1937. Grace Covenant now serves approximately a few thousand parishioners through services at three different campuses; 17301 Statesville Road, Cornelius, 531 N. Greenbriar Road, Statesville and 296 N Hwy 16 in Denver. Serving both the Davidson and Huntersville communities, Lake Forest Church is a member of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church denomination. Freedom to worship all types of denominations is alive and well here. You’ll find Baptist and Methodist churches, plus the Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Davidson is home to the Davidson Friends Meeting House for the Quaker faith and

Temple Kol Tikvah, serving the Jewish community. To help accommodate the growth brought on by the construction of Lake Norman, St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in Mooresville raised funds for the building that still stands today in the early 1960s. You’ll find St. Mark’s Catholic Church in Huntersville and St. Therese Catholic Church in Mooresville. For those who prefer a more contemporary form of worship, there’s also a variety of nondenominational churches spread throughout the area, such as Elevation Church, Journey Church, Newsong Church, LIFE Fellowship Church and many others. These houses of worship are only the beginning of a very long list— because no matter where you prefer to seek out spiritual comfort, you’re sure to find what your soul desires in the towns of Lake Norman.

Game On!

There’s never a dull moment for sports fans in LKN BY MIKE SAVICKI

NBA STAR STEPH CURRY CHRISTENS DAVIDSON COLLEGE’S HARRY L. VANCE ATHLETIC CENTER.

Sports fans love living here because if you enjoy professional sports or even exciting college and minor league sports in person, you are in the right place. In just a quick car ride, you can catch athletic competition at the highest level of competition.

Davidson College Wildcats

NASCAR

In 2014, Davidson College joined the Atlantic 10 Conference and quickly proved that it has what it takes to compete with the big dogs, as the men’s basketball team won the regular season championship and played in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. Charlotte native and NBA standout, Steph Curry, took the Wildcats to the Elite Eight in 2008. In 2016, Curry, who plays for the Golden State Warriors, was voted the NBA’s first unanimous MVP. Head Coach Bob McKillop continues to lead the men’s basketball program, which made it back to the NCAA Tournament in 2018, and the team plays its home games on campus at Belk Arena. Scott Abell, who formerly coached at Washington & Lee University, began coaching the football team in 2018. In addition, a handful of women’s teams from basketball and field hockey to tennis and lacrosse dominate the athletic scene at Davidson. Altogether, Davidson fields more than 20 men and women’s athletic teams. Nearly one in four Davidson students participates in varsity sports.

The term NASCAR has become synonmous with Lake Norman. In addition to the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte, many high-profile NASCAR teams are headquartered in state-of-the-art production shops located in Huntersville and Mooresville, while others aren’t far away. Many drivers live on the shores of Lake Norman, and it’s not uncommon to see them boating on the water or out at local restaurants and shops when they aren’t chasing the checkered flag. Thousands of crew members, NASCAR support personnel and supporting business owners live and play around the lake, too. When it comes time to race, Lake Norman residents can make a 30 to 40-minute drive to Charlotte Motor Speedway to see their favorite teams and drivers in action. The track hosts major NASCAR races in May and October, and smaller races and events almost every other week of the year.

UNC Charlotte 49ers www.charlotte49ers.com

If it’s football you want then it is football you’ll get at UNC Charlotte. The school signed its first-ever recruiting class in early 2012 and built a state-of-the-art stadium on its campus in northeast Charlotte. The team kicked off its first official season on Aug. 31, 2013. Basketball is also widely followed on campus. The 9,000seat Halton Arena is located inside the Barnhardt Student Activity Center and is the home to the Charlotte 49ers men’s and women’s teams, which compete in Conference USA. Soccer fanatics know the 49ers know how to score when it counts, as the men’s team advanced to the 2012 NCAA Division One Final Four.

Carolina Panthers www.panthers.com

If you’re new to Lake Norman you may as well go ahead and get a schedule for the upcoming Panthers season and be done with it. When the Carolina Panthers joined the league in 1995 and moved into their newly constructed home at Bank of America Stadium, the hometown team began building its identity and fans began traditions of their own. In 2016, the Carolina Panthers played in the Superbowl and had the whole country “dabbing” with quarterback Cam Newton. With businessman David Tepper, fomerly a minority owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers, officially purchasing the team in 2018, the team has been in the process of a rebuild. With new head coach Matt Rhule stepping in at the beginning of 2020, fans are hopeful the Panthers will soon be back on top with the electric spectator fans have grown to love.

on your feet at one of the dozens of bars and restaurants surrounding the stadium. Go Panthers!

Charlotte Hornets www.nba.com/hornets

Charlotte’s history with professional sports dates back to the 1980s when the city’s first-ever major pro sports team — the Hornets — began competing in an arena just off Tyvola Boulevard. When the team left for New Orleans in 2002, it took the name. However, in the fall of 2014, the Charlotte Bobcats rebranded themselves as the Charlotte Hornets, and fans couldn’t be happier about it. North Carolina native and former NBA superstar Michael Jordan is the majority owner the team, and the recent changes he made not only in the front office but also on the floor have the team playing competitive ball once again. Former San Antonio Spurs coach James Borrego took over the helm of the team in 2018, and there’s never a dull moment at the home games played at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte.

Charlotte Checkers www.gocheckers.com

Who says southerners don’t enjoy a good game of hockey? The Charlotte Checkers are the region’s minor league hockey team and serve as the American Hockey League affiliate for the Raleigh-based Carolina Hurricanes of the NHL. The Checkers name has been associated with Charlotte hockey teams since the 1950s. Today’s team plays its home games from October to April at Charlotte’s Bojangles’ Coliseum where the action is more fast and furious than ever before.

Charlotte Knights

www.charlotteknights.com If you’re in the mood to see tomorrow’s Major League Baseball stars today, head to uptown Charlotte for a Charlotte Knights game. The Class AAA Affiliate of the Chicago White Sox plays in BB & T Ballpark in Uptown Charlotte, and fans can’t get enough of it. The uptown business crowd loves being able to walk from their offices to the stadium to catch a mid-week evening game before heading home to the lake, and families are abuzz for the kid friendly amenities that surrounding the diamond. BB&T Ballpark is located down the street from Bank of America Stadium.

Kannapolis Intimidators www.intimidatorsbaseball.com

The minor league baseball team in nearby Kannapolis features one of the most unique names in all of baseball. The Intimidators are the Class Low-A Affiliate of the Chicago White Sox, and they are named after legendary NASCAR racer — and Kannapolis native — Dale Earnhardt. The team plays in the South Atlantic League and features players just beginning their journey to the major leagues. Home games at the 4,700-seat Intimidators Stadium are about as intimate as a fan could ask for. So bring your glove, and keep your eyes peeled for foul balls and home runs or just sit back and watch the fireworks displays that often light up the games. The Intimidators play from April through early September.

On Course

On the Fairway Find a variety of golf at Lake Norman BY MIKE SAVICKI

Combining aspects of sandhill golf from the Pinehurst and coastal Carolina area with hilly and rolling terrain from the western Carolina mountain courses, there is never a shortage of club selection decisions to be made in Lake Norman, and they all offer their own adventures. Birkdale Golf Club in Huntersville combines the look and feel of a private course with the affordability and appeal of a public facility. The Arnold Palmer-designed public course offers a state-of-the-art lighted practice facility, including a driving range, short-game area and putting green, as well as group and individual instruction by PGA professionals. The 200-acre course convenient to the interstate and within walking distance of the popular Birkdale Village shopping complex. Standing on the elevated tee box of Cowan’s Ford Country Club’s par 5 15th hole, golfers are afforded not simply a breathtaking view of one of the course’s signature holes, they are also challenged with making the decision either to go for the green in two or lay up short of the babbling brook and stone wall then chip and put for birdie. Perhaps it is the lure of the tee box which rises 75 feet above the fairway that dictates club selection, or perhaps it is simply the fact that the hole’s layout has been the subject of horror stories for decades that makes golfers play it conservatively, but the 15th is a true test of the risk/ reward mentality that can be found on any of the area’s top courses.

Great Lake Living at Lake Norman

MOORESVILLE GOLF CLUB RECENTLY WENT THROUGH AN EXTENSIVE RENOVATION. In addition to Cowan’s Ford, a walkable (35 percent-40 percent of golfers regularly walk their rounds at any time) 6,932-yard course that is more than 50 years old, several other private courses are also keeping pace, as they afford golfers the luxury of living and playing in the same neighborhood. The Peninsula Club in Cornelius, NorthStone Country Club in Huntersville and River Run Country Club in Davidson combine golfing excellence with strong neighborhood identity. The Peninsula Club joins Trump National in nearby Iredell County with unmatched water views, while River Run and NorthStone boast the classic North Carolina look of rolling terrain and tree-lined fairways. And courses such as Westport Golf Club in Denver have tweaked their layouts and upgraded their facilities to attract new members, while others, such as the communityrun Mooresville Golf Course to the north and Pine Island Country Club to the south have either undertaken multimillion dollar renovation projects or undergone major facelifts to create an entirely new look and feel. Fans of the game don’t have to travel far to see the pros compete. During the first week of May, the Wells Fargo Championship brings the PGA TOUR to Charlotte as top pros compete at the Quail Hollow Club. So grab your driver, tee it up high, then swing away. Golf at Lake Norman is full of surprises and challenges if you can just get past the views. A Product of Lake Norman CURRENTS Magazine
