Restaurants

Huntersville and Cornelius are small towns, but their proximity to the lake makes them a great place to live, work, and play. In Huntersville, locals enjoy spending time in Birkdale Village, a beautiful shopping center built to feel like a self-contained small town. Beautiful high-end apartments sit atop restaurants and bars.

In the center, you can find eeZ, a casual dining experience with an amazing Asian fusion menu, including dishes such as ahi tuna nachos -- a delightful fusion of cuisines. The owners of eeZ also operate the Cowfish Sushi Burger Bar located in SouthPark. While in Birkdale, make a night of checking out the wide variety of bars. The shopping center often has music and other festivities on weekends, holidays, and in the evenings. In Cornelius, locals flock to the Rusty Rudder, which serves food and drinks right on the lake. As a matter of fact, you can pull right up to the dock on your boat to enjoy yourself, and then zip back to your house or marina later.

In search of a cup of coffee or a quick bite to eat? Look no further than Waterbean Coffee on Jetton Road, which offers quality coffee in a pleasant atmosphere. The owner will learn your name after just a few visits. Try a delicious latte or cappuccino, or drink a more traditional cup of black coffee while munching on a scone or muffin.

History

The town of Cornelius was founded in 1893 over a dispute regarding the weighing of cotton, a key commodity in the area at the time. In the 1960s, the lake was built by damming the Catawba River, and the town of Cornelius became home to a hydroelectric power plant called Duke Power. Now, the lake is what this town is known for, and most people live or visit here to spend time by the large, manmade body of water. It is very beautiful, and there are numerous parks to visit along the coastline. Huntersville is also considered a lake town, even though visiting the lake requires a drive of a few miles.

Transportation

Cornelius/Huntersville residents rely on their vehicles to get around. Homes and buildings are spaced far apart, with plenty of open land in between. As a result, there's very little pedestrian traffic. Boating is popular, and there are a few parks and restaurants that have docks. As part of Mecklenburg County, residents have access to CATS, the county's public transit system. The airport is about 45 minutes south of the Conelius/Huntersville area.

Cost

Cornelius and Huntersville are popular lakeside communities, and are therefore more expensive to live in than many other Charlotte-area suburbs. Homes, especially those in golf course communities and lakeside, can cost around one million dollars. Apartments in Cornelius/Huntersville rent for about $1,000 a month.

Other than housing and rent, the cost of living in Cornelius and Huntersville is fairly average. A bus ride through CATS costs a flat fee of $2.20, and gas prices hover around the national average.

Shopping

Birkdale Village, the premier shopping destination for the entire area, provides a variety of options from restaurants to shops. Here, you will find boutiques such as the Jewel Box, where you can purchase beautiful, unique statement pieces. Those in the market for a new funky necklace or beaded bracelet are sure to find some surprises. Of course, living lakeside, you'll need some resort wear and sandals -- find those and more at Vanilla Brazil, a high-end boutique featuring Brazilian brands.

While in the shopping center, any novice or expert cook would be remiss without visiting Savory Spice Shop, where you can buy all sorts of gourmet spices and seasonings. The shop actually grinds its own spices fresh weekly. While spice is nice, so is sweet -- be sure to head down to Kilwins and pick up some chocolates, ice cream, handmade fudge, caramel popcorn, and fresh, hand-dipped apples in a special caramel developed by Don Kilwin.

For groceries, both towns have several options. You'll find a Fresh Market, Whole Foods, Harris Teeter, and Target located nearby.

Parks

This area has many parks where you can enjoy the natural splendor of the lake, river and more. Events in the area include fireworks over the lake each 4th of July, which can be viewed from boats, docks, and decks. If you have never seen fireworks falling over a lake, then you are in for a treat as this is every local's favorite day to live at Lake Norman.

Jetton Park in Cornelius is right on the lakeshore and includes tennis courts, a walking trail, beach access, picnic tables, a playground, and more. Dogs are also welcomed and often seen jogging or walking with owners.

In Huntersville, you must check out the Latta Plantation Nature Preserve, which offers an equestrian center, hiking trails, kayaking, picnicking areas, and more. The park neighbors a living history farm, making this an ideal place to learn a little bit about the history of the area and enjoy beautiful natural scenery, get some exercise, and relax.
