Are there restaurants on the lakes in the area that you can boat up too? Do people boat alot on the lakes. We are looking for a boating community.

Lake Norman:
Midtown Sundries
Rusty Rudder
Vinnie's

Lake Wylie:
T-Bones as the above poster mentioned is really the only one.

Your better commute will be from Lake Wylie, south of Charlotte on the SC border. Lake Norman is to the north of Charlotte. It is the "happenin" lake, but I think way too overcrowded on weekends. I much prefer Lake Wylie for enjoyment of the water and surroundings. Plus the fishing there is great! In your price range check out The Palasaides - a beautiful new development on Lake Wylie

Forgot to say, we have many hospitals in and around Charlotte. The two big main hospitals are uptown - Presbyterian Hospital and Carolinas Medical Center.

Lake Wylie is off Highway 49 straddling south Mecklenburg county and York County SC. There are large hospitals uptown, maybe 25-40 minutes (depending on traffic). Lake Wylie is 20 miles from Presbyterian Hospital, for instance.

EDIT: lovesmountains, I guess we were typing at the same time, as usual!

Don't forget North Harbor Club. This is the nicest and best restaurant on the lake.

Yeah, I think so too but I was not sure if people boat up to it (that's what OP was asking). It's kind of nicer, and I always am hot, sweaty and not in my best clothes and I would feel weird boating up to that place.
