As I peer out a tiny window on my flight to Atlanta I can’t help but marvel at the vastness and grandeur of the world below me.

Located in Mecklenburg County, Cornelius, North Carolina and its sister towns of Huntersville and Davidson make up what is known as the “Lake Norman” region. SItuated on and around Lake Norman with its 520 miles of shoreline, Cornelius residents enjoy relaxed “lakeside living” while having access to urban amenities. With a population of 21,000, Cornelius is located 15 miles north of Charlotte and is found at the crossroads between beaches (3 hours south) and mountains (2 hours west). Recently recognized nationally, Cornelius was voted “7th Most Affordable Suburb” by Bloomberg Business Week.
