Default Lake Norman ?

Anyone boat on lake norman NC. Looking for a change of scenery, been to LOTO 25+ times and Cumberland. Powerboats alive and thriving? Have teenage boys, not looking for huge party scene. Wondering about restaurants, hangouts. I plan on doing other things besides boating. Have 35 executioner, don't want to hang out with wakeboard boats all day. Any info will be appreciated, thank you.

I have boated on lake Norman 10 times in the last 3 years and itís big, several places to eat on the water, several sand bars etc, but itís busy, and pontoons, wake boats and jet skis are the most prominent sights.

You wonít stick out at all. Depending on when you plan on going, you may be the small slow boat on the water. I have a 33í ocean hawk center console and saw a bunch of big cats and vees each time I was out. I live on lake Wylie which is an hour south of lake Norman, id say come down here, but thereís nothing to do on the water except boat or go to the one restaurant we have on the water. But if you want a chill family day, this is the lake for that.

My favorite place on earth! Lots of great watering holes/restaurants, beautiful water and sights, plenty of space and lots of performance boats. There are plenty of really nice ramps too. We plan to retire there. I've never dealt with too many jet skis there. We vacation there a lot.
