There are several suburbs on the north side of Charlotte within an easy commute. They are all on Lake Norman which has over 500 miles of shoreline. These cities are Cornelius, Huntersville and Mooresville. You can get a lot of local info on my website. Thanks (I went to school in Oswego!)

Lake Norman is beautiful but also there is High Rock Lake that is located in Davidson Co. It is absolutely beautiful and not quite as "busy" and not quite as expensive as Lake Norman. My husband and I have thought about moving there ourselves.
I am a top producer with my company, ERA Premier Realty and I work hard for my clients. I can help you with your move if you haven't chose your Realtor yet.

Lake Norman is great. I boat on it every week during the summer. My husband and I love to go out and find a nice restaurant and get a bite to eat and then just cruise. There are many marinas on the lake also. Visit our website at http://www.carolina-real-estate.com . I can set up a search for you and start sending you properties to preview right away. If Lake Norman is not what you are looking for. Lake Wylie is close by also.. I prefer Lake norman , but it is everyones taste. and commute to work that you need to check out.. Give us a call we would love to help you..

Actually, there are 3 lakes within commuting distance to uptown Charlotte: Norman in the north, is the largest (best if you have big boat) most expensive generally, Lake Wylie to the south, 2nd largest and borders SC, closer (less traffic) to the city than Norman, and Mt Island Lake, the smallest, but still see good size ski and fishing boats there. Homes there are the most economical, and parts of Mt Island lake are 15 minutes to Uptown. They are all part of the city drinking water reservoir, generally pretty clean, skiing, fishing recreational boating are king. I've quite a few online resources for you:

We have two beautiful lakes in the Charlotte Metro. One is Lake Norman and the other is Lake Wylie. Both have swimming and boating. The water is clean except for what the boats and the energy sources put into them. They are both man made lakes created for energy production.

I am licensed in North and South Carolina and would love to assist you.

Please feel free to search my website, without logging in, and without contact.... until you are ready.

Katie,
Perhaps one of the Realtors in the Charlotte area can step in here.
I've noticed posts from Liz Snide, Tracey Miller and others...

Consider picking a Realtor in the area that's been in Charlotte for a while and has the same interests that you and your family have and you'll probably get great results finding a home with all the features you want.
