Hello,
We are looking to move to the Lake Norman area. Can you recommend any towns with great school systems, low crime, good commute to downtown Charlotte and on or with lake views.

Any other suggestions are welcome too.

Thanks!

Second vote for Denver, NC.

Straight shot down 16 to drop you into Charlotte while avoiding 77.

Not nearly as many restaurants or shopping as the Eastern side of the lake, but we've got a Lowes, Wal-Mart and Harris Teeter which is all I really need for any sort of daily items.

Taxes for Cities bordering Lake Norman (Davidson falls in two counties)
Denver, Lincoln County - 0.5700
Cornelius, Davidson, Huntersville, Mecklenburg County - 0.8387
Davidson & Mooresville, Iredell County - 0.4450

Be careful not to miss it, whenever I show someone visiting me the center of town, I take them to Forney Hill Rd and the "old" (original) 16. There's a single street sign there that has Denver showing in both directions on the corner with Bank of America.

I think Davidson is the best town up there. But the commute stinks.

There are no good commutes from Lake Norman to Charlotte. Just commutes that suck less than others.

Well thats just an out right lie. I commute from Huntersville to Uptown everyday and I find it not bad at all. The trick is location.

And work hours can help. I'm 8a-4p so I tend to miss the heavy traffic to and from Huntersville.
