MSN recently compiled a list of what they consider to be the 11 best lake towns in the US.
The list includes many legendary locations, such as; Lake Tahoe, Lake Placid, Grand Lake in Colorado, and of course, “one of the most beautiful lakes in North Carolina, Lake Norman”.
They ranked the town of Cornelius, which includes the prestigious Peninsula, and Mecklenburg County’s first beach, as the #4 best lake town in the country.
MSN praises Cornelius’ proximity to Charlotte and abundant amenities, “For city slickers, Cornelius, North Carolina, is the perfect town to enjoy lake living without sacrificing big city amenities. Located only half an hour from the bustle of Charlotte, Cornelius borders one of the most beautiful lakes in North Carolina, Lake Norman. While you’re there, check out Jetton Park, a beautiful 104-acre park on the lake, or enjoy a cold beer at one of the many local breweries in the area. You’ll definitely want to raise a glass at A-s Clown Brewing Company, which is known for its wacky brews like Hibiscus Rose Petal and Star Fruit Tart.”
Do you agree with the ranking?
