Lake Norman, NC
The girls and I recently went to Lake Norman, NC for an extended weekend getaway. This trip was so fun and relaxing! Lake Norman is about 20 minutes outside of Charlotte. We were supposed to drive down, but because of my crazy work schedule, we found cheap round trip flights to Charlotte. From DCA to Charlotte, tickets were about $130.
We rented a dope 4 bedroom, 2 1/2 bathroom lake house on Airb&b that was perfect for our group. There are some beautiful homes on Airb&b but we picked this one because it was affordable and had a lot of amenities. Because of Covid, we knew we would spend more time in the house than usual, so we were looking for something that was comfy but also had things to do. The pictures do it no justice. The house was beautifully decorated and had everything we could have needed. The hot tub, fire pit and view were my favorite features, but they also offered paddle boards, kayaks and grills. Brenell and Milo were awesome hosts. The provided a guide for the house as well as things to do, places to shop and eat in Lake Norman. You can check out the lake house here: abnb.me/XYOf33rwRfb
Things to do:
Rent a chartered boat. A family friend is a member of the yacht club but you can find options on www.getmyboat.com
Hang out in downtown Davidson - cute little shops and restaurants
Day trip to Charlotte
Hike Grandfather Mountain
Visit a winery (Raylen, Childress or Shadowline)
Places to eat:
Eddies on the Lake - American seafood - good food and drinks
131 Main - American- delicious food
Havana 33 - Cuban - amazing food and mojitos
Davidson Wine Co. - Urban Winery - decent brunch
My favorite part of the entire trip was making a list of things to leave at the lake. We wrote down things we wanted to give up and threw them in the fire pit. Drop in comments what you would write on your list.
