SHOP THE LAKE

Great Lake Living at Lake Norman

On behalf of the Lake Norman Chamber of Commerce and our more than 1,000+ active business members, it is a pleasure to welcome you to the Lake Norman region. Nestled on the banks of 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 small town 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 the region, making Lake Norman one of the fastest growing regions in the country. Our proximity to the cultural opportunities of Charlotte, mixed with

LAKENORMANCHAMBER.ORG

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 buyers guide (beginning on page 66) to Shop the Lake and enjoy our diverse array of retailers, shopping centers and restaurants. Treat yourself to the Charlotte region’s premier parks or take in one of our historical sites. We hope Great Lake Living gives you a glimpse into why so many new families are making Lake Norman their home. Visitors and residents can browse VisitLakenorman.org for more information on dining and entertainment, and newcomers and prospective businesses can find our more about the region at LakeNormanChamber.org. Again, on behalf of our business community and our lake towns we welcome you to Lake Norman! Sincerely,

History

Powering the Future

Photography courtesy of Davidson College

The creation of Lake Norman changed more than the area’s landscape

18

Lake Norman celebrates 55 years years in 2018. When newcomers discover the lake’s history, they’re almost always surprised to learn how it came about. Then there are some folks who are surprised to find out that it hasn’t always been here. 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. 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. Often referred to as “The Inland Sea,” Lake Norman offers 520 miles of shoreline (more than North and South 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 escape everyday THE MCGUIRE NUCLEAR STATION, life. In 1964 Duke NAMED FOR DUKE POWER PRESIDENT Power offered FROM 1959-1971 W.B. MCGUIRE, BEGAN more than 2,600 OPERATING IN 1981. 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 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. More than 50 years after its creation, Lake Norman remains a peaceful respite for an extraordinary community of people. Note: Lake Norman Our Inland Sea (bottom right) by Bill and Diana Gleasner and Images of America Around Lake Norman (top right) by Cindy Jacobs were used as research tools for this article. Both are excellent books about Lake Norman’s history.

Respect the Lake Personal Watercraft Law

The N.C. General Assembly enacted a personal watercraft law that took effect Dec. 1, 1999. On June 30, 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 Future is Bright

MSC HAS QUICKLY BECOME PART OF THE LAKE NORMAN COMMUNITY. In the years before Duke Energy unveiled its master plan to construct the Cowans Ford Dam and the McGuire Nuclear Station, and then transform the Catawba River into Lake Norman, Huntersville, Cornelius and Davidson were nothing more than quiet farm communities and small mill towns. Land was plentiful, and labor was cheap. The city of Charlotte, to those who called the three-town region home, was a different entity in itself, a metropolis more than a drive away. Following the completion of Lake Norman, as infastructure additions and improvements came quickly, the area developed a new, overlapping residential and business identity. As industry sprouted alongside residential communities and neighborhoods, the three-town region became more than an attractive “live” and “play” suburb, it added the “work” title to its nomenclature. A glance at the region’s list of top employers paints a picture of the economic diversity that has taken root today. In Huntersville, Duke Energy’s McGuire Nuclear Station employs 1,200, while Novant Health Huntersville Medical Center employs 690 plus physicians, Joe Gibbs Racing 650 and Rubbermaid 400.

work, anchors the small town of Davidson, while Davidson College employs 750 and MSC 350. And in Cornelius, where the residential tax base constitutes nearly 85 percent of the annual town budget, Financial Independence Group employs 130, while FXI and MacLean Curtis put 100 each to work in their facilities. Extraordinary things are happening here. Innovation and high technology are driving the transformation. The soils that once grew cotton and oats, and supported thousands upon thousands of acres of farmland have transformed into expansive business parks where international businesses are planting seeds. Job creation is up, unemployment is down and with an influx of highly educated high school, college and post graduate residents establishing residences, companies are relocating and expanding to take advantage of the skilled local workforce. In late 2014, Burkert Fluid Control Systems, in partnership with Mecklenburg County, the Town of Huntersville and Lake Norman Ecconomic Development, announced plans to develop an advanced manufacturing facility near the southern tip of the lake. In April 2017, the company hosted a grand opening celebration of its 173,000-square-foot U.S. headquarters designed by WHN+ Architects. The campus currently has 65 employees that utilize the campus, which boasts floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the entire office space, a fitness center with an indoor half basketball court, and a two-story atrium that runs the length of the building.

While the three towns compete for business, they also collaborate, appreciating that what is good for one town benefits all three. Perhaps no single project represents the collective drive for regional economic growth than Commerce Station, a business park owned by Huntersville, Cornelius and Davidson. Home to Southwire, a global leader in power and automated technologies, and Pactiv, a plastics manufacturer, the Huntersville park continues growing at a steady rate. With the Charlotte Douglas International Airport just 15 minutes away, business eyes from Europe and Asia have tightened their focus. While technology and advanced manufacturing have captured the spotlight, they are not alone. With town commissioners voting to change zoning requirements to allow for growth, the craft beer industry, which once thrived primarily in the mountain area around Asheville, has taken root at the lake. Various regional microbrew facilities, along with a handful of taprooms and bottle shops, now greet customers up and down the economic corridor. With more to open, the Lake Norman region has established an identity as the state’s most rapidly growing microbrew capital. The future looks even more promising for business. The same town boards who historically made decisions to encourage and support residental growth are now weighing the pros of a major economic shift. Rezoning for business parks, stand-alone facilities, and even multi-story hotel and convention centers dominate monthly agendas. The future for this once small and quiet farming region is close to completing its international business transformation. A Product of Lake Norman CURRENTS Magazine

Surrounding the mall is a selection of big boxes, including one of Mecklenburg County’s two REIs. If you can’t find what you need at this exit, you might want to rethink what you need.

BIRKDALE VILLAGE SERVES AS THE NUCLEUS OF HUNTERSVILLE.

FExit 25 brings you to Huntersville, where you’ll find Lowe’s, Target and Kohl’s, along with Birkdale Village, a mixed-use shopping center that serves as the unofficial town square. With a nice mix of fun local shops (Poppies) and chains (think Banana Republic, Gap and Talbots), Birkdale offers a pleasant shopping experience even for those who don’t enjoy shopping. Stop by on Friday or Saturday evenings during the summer for the Mingling on the Greens Concert Series, where you can enjoy a variety of live music at the center fountain. Three miles north at Exit 28 is Cornelius, which is peppered with quaint shops up and down Catawba Avenue. Keep your eyes open for home interior shops (Dutchmans and The Shoppes at Home Heart & Soul) that

LangTree Lake Norman (Exit 31) is the newest retail spot in the area. Located at Exit 31, the mixed-use shopping center offers a burgeoning mix of boutiques and restaurants. This area is just getting started, so look for more great things to come. Downtown Mooresville (Exit 33, 35 and 36) also offers an old fashioned shopping experience with a true hardware store and a variety of shops. West of I-77 in Mooresville, you’ll find any big box store you need, including HomeGoods, Michael’s, Old Navy, Super Target, Staples and more. Throughout the Lake Norman area there are plenty of mom and pop shops eager to please with personalized customer service and an inventory of specialized items. During recent years various campaigns have encouraged residents to shop local whenever possible. So the next time you find yourself looking for that perfect gift or pick-me-up, remember to shop local. Lori K. Tate loves to shop and lives in Cornelius. She is the editor of CURRENTS magazine.

Time to Dine There’s something for everyone at the table BY CATHY SWINEY PHOTOGRAPHY BY BRANT WALDECK

OWNERS KATY AND JOE KINDRED HAVE ESTABLISHED A STELLAR REPUTATION IN THE RESTAURANT WORLD WITH DOWNTOWN DAVIDSON’S KINDRED. HELLO, SAILOR , THE COUPLE’S LATEST CREATION, IS JUST AS SATISFYING WITH ITS CONTEMPORARY TAKE ON THE FISH CAMP EXPERIENCE. GQ RECENTLY NAMED IT ONE OF THE BEST NEW RESTAURANTS IN THE COUNTRY. Over the 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. The current jewel in the area’s restaurant crown is Kindred in Davidson. Owned by Joe and Katy Kindred, the restaurant was named “The South’s Best Restaurant in North Carolina” by Southern Living in 2018. It was ranked eighth on Bon Appetit’s list of best new American restaurants of 2015. As if that isn’t enough, Kindred was named a James Beard Award Semifinalist in 2016. Last year, the couple opened a lakeside spot 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 Fork! in Cornelius take pride in not only serving the 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.

Those that do set a dressedup 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. Simplicity rules as chefs balance flavors and textures with creativity. 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. For taste buds yearning for more international flavors, Asian fusion, sushi, Thai and Indian cuisine are well represented. Watch as your meal is prepared on a hibachi grill with great flair at a Japanese restaurant, see how high your spice tolerance is, or simply be adventurous and try a new sushi roll. A day of water-skiing or just cruising the lake can leave one hungry, and fortunately, there are nearly a dozen restaurants just steps away from the shoreline. Ease those hunger pains with menus offering everything from oysters and ribs to modern Mexican and other contemporary fare. Most lakeside establishments are ultra casual with a laid-back atmosphere where live music fills the air. There’s no better way to end the day than by grabbing a seat at a table on the deck and enjoying a fantastic sunset with a burger and a cold beverage. 2018-19

Location, location, location THE BLUE RIDGE PARKWAY IS ONLY A COUPLE HOURS AWAY FROM LAKE NORMAN.

Road Trip! You can go anywhere from Lake Norman You can’t beat the convenience of Lake Norman. One of the area’s best qualities, aside from the weather and the lake is how close it is to other exciting places. For example, nearby Mooresville offers a variety of racing adventures, as you can tour race shops and museums, while Denver on the west side of the lake offers an even more laid back lifestyle. Be sure not to miss the Denver Days Festival in September and Mooresville’s Annual Race City Festival in May. Both events offer live music, food and fun for the whole family. And although no Lake Norman resident is just itching to leave their lakeside haven, 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-yourcares-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.

Boone

Asheville

Few destinations anywhere are as splendid as Charleston, South Carolina. 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, as 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.

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. 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.

Great Lake Living at Lake Norman

Drive Time: 2 hours Boone is another North Carolina mountain destination Lake Norman residents can easily reach for a fun day trip 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.

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

Myrtle Beach

Drive Time: 4 hours Few places are as hot come summer as Myrtle Beach, South Carolina (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.

Seagrove

Drive Time: Just under 2 hours Seagrove itself is a tiny town in North Carolina’s Randolph County. But combined 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 2018-19

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

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 areas. 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.

Huntersville is located in the perfect spot. Because depending on which side of Huntersville you live on, you can be in Davidson, Cornelius, Denver, Concord or Charlotte pretty quickly. That’s a great perk for busy families. In addition, the town has great neighborhoods for families such as Birkdale, Hampton Ridge, MacAulay, Stephens Grove, Vermillion and Wynfield, just to name a few.

with modern conveniences, such as plenty of places to work out, a variety of grocery stores (think Earth Fare, Harris Teeter, Publix and Whole Foods) and retail shopping centers like Birkdale Village (our favorite place to go to the movies).

OLD TOWN CORNELIUS OFFERS QUAINT SHOPS AND RESTAURANTS.

Cornelius Welcome home

BY LORI K. TATE

I grew up around water, so it was only natural that that’s where I would want to make my adult home. Whether you’re swimming in it or eating dinner beside it, water has a certain peacefulness to it that calms the soul like nothing else can. 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. At first my husband worried that I would be homesick for Charlotte, the city where I had spent my 20s. But now he’s the one who has to talk me into making the trek down I-77 to The Queen City for special events. Don’t misunderstand me. Charlotte is a fine city, but the truth is

that I have everything I need right 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. 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. My 8-year-old twins adore Robbins Park and its sculptures. 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, Sweet Magnolia or The Shoppes at 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. Lori K.

Davidson A Magical Town BY LORI K.TATE

DOWNTOWN DAVIDSON OFFERS THE BEST OF SMALL TOWN CHARM.

ART OF THE GREEN IS A FAVORITE SPRING EVENT.

It’s almost impossible to walk down Davidson’s Main Street and not see someone you know. Newcomers will fall into the mix quickly, and that’s no accident, as the folks in Davidson have worked hard to create a walkable small town where everyone knows everyone else. While it’s charming to check in with friends while you sip a latte at Summit Coffee, there’s a magical quality that permeates throughout the town. During certain times of the year, the magic comes through even more. For three nights in December, the town turns into a Norman Rockwell painting with its Christmas in Davidson celebration.

A carousel thrills little ones, as carolers who look as if they stepped out of a Charles Dickens’ novel sing God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen in perfect harmony. Davidson United Methodist Church caps off the festivities with a live nativity. In the spring, Town Day brings out a variety of performers to the Village Green, as well as a ropes course built by the local Boy Scouts and the Canine Cover Dog competition for CURRENTS Magazine, the publisher of this publication.

favorite. People set their tents up early to make sure they get a prime picnic spot for the show. On Saturday mornings, residents flock to the Davidson Farmers’ Market with bags and baskets in hand, looking for the best produce, meats and cheeses. Many treat themselves to a bouquet of flowers to carry them through the week. Live folk and bluegrass music gives the market more of a festival feel, and chef demonstrations inspire everyone to try a little harder in the kitchen. However, if you don’t feel like cooking, Davidson has one of the hottest dining scenes around. With eateries such as Brickhouse Tavern, Carrburritos, Flatiron Kitchen + Taphouse, Kindred, Mandolino’s, Mestizo, Toast and the beloved Soda Shop, it’s hard to decide what’s for lunch or dinner. And you can bet that as soon as you take a seat, you’ll see someone you know. Of course, one of the best parts of Davidson is Davidson College, the nucleus of town. Established by the Presbyterian Church in 1837, the college brings performances, speakers and international flair to the community, not to mention exciting basketball games. Ever heard of Steph Curry? Walking on its brick sidewalks under the oak trees is one of my favorite things to do, as it reminds me of my days as a student at Chapel Hill. Students scurry to class on foot or via bike, and you can’t help but feel hopeful for the future. Whenever I have to run an errand in Davidson, it doesn’t feel like an errand at all. Instead it feels like a little retreat, where tradition and sophstication mesh together to create a vibrant environment of which I’m grateful to be a part.

it means to be spiritual but rather spiritual beings seeking what it means to be human, then there will always be a place for communities of faith. From the small, white-framed church in a rural community to the large, high energy church that might meet in a remodeled movie theatre, you can find many varieties of religious expression in the Lake Norman area. In our expanding cultural diversity, you can also hear the call to prayer in a mosque or the meditative chants from those who call themselves Buddhist. The title of one of the books I wrote is based on an old “good news/bad news joke.” The pilot of an airplane announces over the speaker, “Ladies and gentleman I have some good news and some bad news. The bad news is that we are lost, and I have no idea where we are. The good news is that we are making excellent time.” The book title is Lost but Making Excellent Time: Transforming the Rat Race into a Pilgrimage. There is no doubt that things are getting faster all around us. From cars to technology, the pace is quicker and at times more hectic. In the midst of the fast pace it is easy to “get lost.” The human spirit needs times of reflection and times for meaning

making. We all know that we are here, but the deeper question is, “Why are we here?” Faith communities give us a chance to ponder this question. One of my favorite quotes comes from Mark Nepo in The Exquisite Risk. “To journey without being changed is to be a nomad. To change without journeying is to be a chameleon. To journey and be transformed by the journey is to be a pilgrim.” So I invite you to not get lost while making excellent time. There are many faith communities nearby that can help us become spiritual pilgrims who pay attention to the gift of life and also help us give back to our community. So as a song I learned a long time ago states, “Different is beautiful, God bless variety. Just look around and see, different is beautiful.” Photography courtesy of Jody Seymour.

Varieties of a Religious Experience is the title of a book by William James. It was published in the early part of the last century, but I am borrowing it to portray the many religious expressions that are present in the Lake Norman area. If one decides to take seriously the journey of the Spirit, then there is a buffet of experiences from which to choose. Although studies show a decline nationally in those who connect to a religious community, we still live in a region that is known as “The Bible Belt.” Perhaps that “belt” is not as tight as in years past, but its presence is still felt. In James’ book about religious experience, he points to the variety of human needs that seek out religion as a way to add meaning to those needs. If a visitor from another planet showed up and said, “Take me to the place where your God is worshiped,” where would you take the visitor? Those who believe there is “one” God must acknowledge that we sure find a variety of ways to worship that one God. We can consider such variety a liability or we can celebrate that different is beautiful. It is said that our culture is becoming more and more secular. But if it is true that we are not humans seeking what

THE RESORT LIFESTYLE IS ALIVE AND WELL AT LAKE NORMAN.

Home Sweet Home There are so many ways to live here BY RENEE ROBERSON

With Lake Norman’s four seasons, diverse and growing job opportunities, and activities for cultural and outdoor enthusiasts, more and more people are calling the area home. There’s a lot to love here, but one aspect that makes the Lake Norman area so attractive is the numerous ways you can live here, depending on your lifestyle and budget. Frances Dawson, a Realtor/Broker with RE/MAX Executive at The Lake, has 15 years of experience and says she is seeing families moving from more expensive regions of the West Coast and upstate New York, empty nesters hoping to settle down near their adult children and grandchildren, young professionals looking for lifestyle options, among others. We asked Dawson to give us an overview of some of the options for living at the lake, whether it’s a neighborhood perfect for families, senior citizens or those searching for an upscale living experience.

Get Outside

Take the Greenway The scenic route will get you where you want to go

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

BY LORI K. TATE PHOTOGRAPHY BY BRANT WALDECK

It’s a Sunday afternoon on Davidson’s South Prong Rocky River Greenway. The 2.8-mile greenway, also known as the Randall R. Kincaid Trail, is peppered with folks walking their dogs, friends talking as they powerwalk and a kid zipping by on his scooter. This cross section of community is the norm on this greenway, as well as all of the other greenways that run through the Lake Norman area, and that’s by design. “One of the biggest benefits of the greenways is that they create community. You meet people on the greenway who are different than you,” explains Gwen Cook, a planner for Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation Department. “The momentum [for greenways] is building.” Currently there are 37 miles of developed and 150 miles of undeveloped greenways in Mecklenburg County. Not only do these vegetated ribbons protect wildlife, improve water quality, reduce flooding impacts and provide buffers from development, but they also connect people, geographically and personally. These greenways also offer a more scenic route to and from the places people want to go.

Unstructured fun

In the northern part of Mecklenburg County, Huntersville, Cornelius and Davidson have their fair share of greenways with more to come. Cornelius’ most recent addition, the Caldwell Station Creek Greenway, is a 2.6-mile greenway that connects Bailey Road Park to Highway 21 near Northcross Shopping Center. “It’s [greenways] the number one priority in our comprehensive Parks and Greenways Master Plan,” says Troy Fitzsimmons, director of the Town of Cornelius Parks, Arts, Recreation & Culture (PARC) department. Fitzsimmons 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.” A Product of Lake Norman CURRENTS Magazine

2018-19

TWENTY-TWO MILES OF THE CAROLINA THREAD TRAIL’S MORE THAN 260 COMPLETED MILES RUN THROUGH THE LAKE NORMAN AREA. Another attractive aspect of greenways is their convenience. The Caldwell Station Creek Greenway 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.

A thread runs through it

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. Catawba Lands Conservancy serves as the lead agency for the trail, while Foundation For The Carolinas is its philanthropic partner. “Originally when the organization first got started, the vision was 500 miles of trails for the Thread Trail network,” explains Bret Baronak, community coordinator for the Carolina Thread Trail. “Then as popularity grew, and there was success, the decision was made to push this out to what is now almost 1,600 miles of trail. … One of the other components that was added was recognizing some of our rivers as blueways.” 2018-19

A Product of Lake Norman CURRENTS Magazine

For example, 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. Throughout the trail, you’ll find various attractions, both historical or commercial.

A path for the future

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. 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 and will 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 Highway 115. In Cornelius, construction on the

South Prong Rocky River Greenway began last year, and in 2020, construction will begin on the JV Washam to Smithville Park Greenway. The town is also partnering 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 MultiUse 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. “When you get out on a trail 100 percent of the time you can just tell by the way people are looking that they are enjoying themselves,” says Baronak. “They’re smiles on their faces.” Great Lake Living at Lake Norman

Recreation

The Life of Leisure Fun abounds around every corner BY BYRENEE RENEEROBERSON ROBERSON

THERE’S NEVER A BAD DAY ON LAKE NORMAN.

As the sun showers its diamond sparkles on Lake Norman, it’s clear that being on the water is the main focus here. However, believe it or not, the water is only one of the many recreational activities residents enjoy at Lake Norman. Here’s a look at what adventures await you, rain or shine, cold or warm weather. If you want to spend time outdoors, Lake Norman is fortunate to have a great public park system, countless trails and greenways for biking and hiking, and parks with plenty of recreational fields and playground equipment. In Cornelius, Ramsey Creek Park is a 43-acre waterfront park with boat-launching areas, docks, a fishing pier and a public swimming beach. There are also picnic shelters, horseshoe pits, a volleyball court, a three-acre dog park, playground and nature trails. Visitors can rent large “funbrellas” to utilize on the large and waterfront picnic area. Another popular destination for those who love to spend time outdoors is Jetton Park in Cornelius. This 105-acre park has a beach area, wooden gazebos, a formal garden and a playground. There are also eight tennis courts,

56

and paved walking and biking trails, most of which wind through nicely shaded wooded areas. For a small fee, visitors can rent waterside picnic decks equipped with a grill and a table. In Troutman, there’s Lake Norman State Park, an ideal place to enjoy the area’s natural beauty and go running or mountain biking. The 1,328-acre park includes 13 miles of shoreline along the northeastern shore of Lake Norman. There is a 125-yard beach and public swimming area, which is supervised by lifeguards seasonally, as well as a concession stand, showers, restrooms and changing stalls. In Davidson, walkers, runners and cyclists enjoy the natural beauty of Fisher Farm Park, located on 200 acres of woods off of Shearer Road. It features four miles of biking trails with enough terrain for different skill levels. There’s also a 2.5-mile walking trail on site. Dogs love it here. In Huntersville, visit the Latta Plantation Center and Nature Preserve, situated on more than 1,000 acres on Mountain Island Lake. There, you’ll find hiking trails and the Carolina Raptor Center, where visitors can observe A Product of Lake Norman CURRENTS Magazine

more than 25 species of raptors living along a Raptor Trail with a self-guided tour. Also in Huntersville, Blythe Landing offers 26 acres of fun with floating piers and boat ramps, a beach and playground, picnic areas, and sand volleyball courts. Blythe Landing is also home to Lake Norman Community Sailing, which offers a variety of sailing programs for all ages. In addition to Lake Norman’s 520 miles of shoreline, there are also stateof-the-art fitness centers that offer amenities for every member of the family, as well as swimming, canoeing and kayaking lessons, all of which provide plenty of things to do during the colder winter months. One great place for families to get fit is Huntersville Family Fitness & Aquatics. The 88,000-square-foot facility is home to a 25-yard warm water pool and outdoor family fun pool. It also holds the distinction of being the only public facility in the Southeast with an Olympicsized, 50-meter competition pool

and 10-meter dive tower. It often hosts aquatic events with up to 2,000 spectators for regional, national, world-class swim and dive competitions. In addition, there’s a full-court gymnasium and a complete fitness center with cardiovascular training equipment such as treadmills, elliptical trainers, and stationary bicycles and group exercise classes. The Lake Norman YMCA in Cornelius is equally as popular, as you can learn to sail, water ski, canoe, paddle board or kayak at this branch. In addition, you can enjoy a beachfront picnic after a rousing game of outdoor volleyball. As for indoor activities, enjoy Pilates and yoga in the branch’s waterview studio, dedicated to mind and body programs. Group exercise classes abound at all levels, as well as summer day camps. Indoor/outdoor pools, along with an excellent fitness staff, round out the branch’s offerings. Whatever you feel like doing recreationally, you can bet there’s a park or facility that offers it here. Go play!

www.panthers.com Native Charlotteans might remember a time when catching an NFL football game in person meant taking a road trip to Atlanta or Washington, DC. But when the Carolina Panthers joined the league in 1995 and moved into their newly constructed home at Bank of America Stadium, those other cities and their teams became nothing more than chief rivals, while 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. The games are electric, the tailgating is fabulous

In addition to the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte, many high-profile NASCAR teams are headquartered in stateof-the-art production shops located in Huntersville and Mooresville, while others aren’t far away. Scores of 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.

When it comes time to race, Lake Norman residents can make a 45-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.

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. Home games are played at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte.

Charlotte Checkers

www.gocheckers.com Even though we’re in the South, pucks fly in ice rinks across the Carolinas. 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. While the Hurricanes are relatively new to the state, 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 the Spectrum Center in Charlotte where the action is more fast and furious than ever before.

Charlotte Knights

This is the fifth season the Class AAA Affiliate of the Chicago White Sox has played in the new BB & T Ballpark, and fans can’t get enough of it.

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.

Davidson College Wildcats www.davidsonwildcats.com 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. Davidson fields more than 20 men and women’s athletic teams. Nearly one in four Davidson students participates in varsity sports.

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.

Great Lake Living at Lake Norman

BY MIKE SAVICKI

Golf at Lake Norman is uniquely challenging, as it combines aspects of sandhill golf from the Pinehurst and coastal Carolina area with the hilly and rolling terrain from the western Carolina mountain courses. There is never a shortage of club selection decisions to be made. 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 putt 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. In addition to Cowan’s Ford, a walkable (35 percent to 40 percent of golfers regularly walk their rounds at any time) 6,932-yard course that is more than 50 years

MOORESVILLE GOLF COURSE RECENTLY WENT THROUGH AN EXTENSIVE RENOVATION.

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. 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. It’s convenient to the interstate and within walking distance of the popular Birkdale Village shopping complex. 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. 2018-19

Events and Awards BUSINESS LEADERS AT THE ANNUAL GALA & AWARDS BANQUET.

The Lake Norman Chamber’s Events and Awards

Photography By Sharon Simpson

The Lake Norman Chamber of Commerce’s calendar features key events that provide networking and recognition Annual Gala & Awards Banquet

A black tie-optional event, the annual Lake Norman Chamber Annual Gala & Awards banquet is an elegant night of celebration, during which the “changing of the guard” occurs as the outgoing Chamber Chairman hands over the reigns to the incoming Chair. There is also a presentation of the Robert T. Cashion Business Person of the Year award and the Duke Energy Citizenship & Service Award — which recognizes leadership and/or involvement in volunteerism and community service.

Annual Business Expo

The Lake Norman Chamber Expo is an event that provides member businesses the opportunity to showcase their goods and services to the Lake Norman community — both to the public and other member businesses. The Expo has between 150-200 exhibitors and sponsors and is attended by 15002000 members of the business community and public.

Annual Lake Norman Chamber of Commerce Golf Tournament

Dust off your clubs and prepare to hit the links with the Chamber for its Annual Fall Golf Classic. Combine your Chamber networking with a healthy dose of competition. It’s also a great chance to entertain clients and customers. This Captain’s Choice event hosts more than 125 players and participants. Members can become involved in a number of ways, including volunteering and sponsorship. The net proceeds from the tournament fund Chamber programs and operations. For more information about the tournament, or to become a sponsor, call 704.892.1922 or email The Chamber at: chamber@lakenorman.org.

Business AfterHours and Chamber Mixers

Unwind after your workday, enjoy refreshments and connect with the local business community. Business AfterHours is a relaxing way to end your day, meet people, and enhance your business and personal relationships. Attendance is always high, so bring plenty of business cards. Business AfterHours events are generally held the third Thursday of every month. If you would like to host one of

64

Great Lake Living at Lake Norman

these highly sought after events at your business —limited to 10 per year — please contact Jack Stevens at 704.892.1922. The Chamber also hosts Chamber Business Mixers, generally held in conjunction with a ribbon cutting event.

Champions of Diversity Luncheon

The Lake Norman Chamber’s Diversity Council provides a forum for sharing vital information, networking, and fostering professional development for minority and women-owned businesses. The Council also honors existing businesses in the Lake Norman region that embrace diversity in their everyday business practices. Each year The Chamber’s Diversity Council asks members of The community to nominate businesses that exemplify diversity for the Champion of Diversity Award, as well as a nominee they feel is worthy of the Champion of Diversity Lifetime Achievement Award. Winners are announced, and awards are presented at the Annual Champions of Diversity luncheon in April.

Coffee Connections & Business Before Hours

Develop potential leads and build business relationships before the workday begins. Throughout the month, many Chamber members host meet-and-greet sessions at their places of business. Attendance at these easy going, unstructured sessions is usually high, so bring plenty of business cards. Who knows? You might have a brand new customer before your workday has even begun.

Power Luncheons

Lake Norman Chamber of Commerce Power Luncheons are held six times a year and feature a business or community leader as a guest speaker. The focus may be on a wide range of topical issues including economic development, education, legislative activities and transportation initiatives, just to name a few.

Ribbon Cuttings & Mixers

Upon joining the Lake Norman Chamber of Commerce, or if you’ve recently expanded/renovated, one of the first opportunities you’ll have to get to know your fellow

members and introduce them to your business is to have a ribbon cutting or mixer. If you would prefer to have a simple ribbon cutting ceremony, you’ll have the opportunity to borrow The Chamber’s oversized scissors for the event. You may also extend your ribbon cutting event by also having a mixer. The Chamber will help you publicize your ribbon cutting, announcing to our membership via our website event calendar and newsletter. Ambassadors and other Chamber staff will also be onsite for the occasion. Mixers are less formal, generally with food and drink, and can be scheduled at any time with a minimum of 10 days notice.

We’re Here For You Before, During, & After the death of a loved one

Speed Networking

Speed Networking at The Chamber meets on the 3rd Friday each month from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. Speed networking is a great way to personally broadcast your message to numerous other businesses in a very direct way. Each attendee gets 30 to 45 seconds to present their commercial to another attendee. A small dialogue follows until the full minute is expired, and then the other individual takes their turn. Once the full two-minute session expires, a rotation occurs, and the process starts all over again. This rotation continues until the full hour is over. Speed networking takes away the usual awkwardness of trying to break into a conversation already in progress as well as preventing one individual from monopolizing a conversation. Everyone gets equal time to spread their message.
