Yes, you have Lake Norman. But also, there is a river boat (Catawba Queen) that gives tours that are just wonderful and has a small amusement-type area that's really nice. Just west of town, there's a safari-type zoo called Lazy 5 Ranch. Most of it is a 3.5 mile drive through and is a lot of fun. My boys and I went there Monday and had a blast. After you finish the route, you can go through again at no charge. Just to the south in Huntersville, there is the Carolina Raptor Center. It's a nursing facility for bird of prey. You'll probably never get to see so many different varieties of these birds anywhere else. It's located in a beautiful 600-acre nature preserve (Latta Plantation Park). It's really a wonderful area to live.
