Cornelius

Just north of Mecklenburg County, you will stumble across a lakeside community that locals and visitors get wet and wild in the summer months..

The lakeside town of Cornelius,was incorporated in 1905. To get the best experience of the town, spend a day or weekend on Lake Norman, where you can dine dockside, charter a pontoon boat or show off your board skills. Cornelius is still year-round and you can enjoy the heated patio at the Port City Club that will still give great lake views, and the tasty, made-from-scratch menu keeps guests coming back for more. More inland, Fork! serves up fascinating food and wine in a 100-plus-year-old home with a wraparound porch.
