Summertime at Lake Norman

What is your ideal picture of a summer’s day? Is it lounging lakeside, watching the sun set while the kids play in the water? This is exactly what you can experience when you live near the shores of Lake Norman. With an apartment in Huntersville, NC, you can enjoy all of the perks of summertime life near the water.

Enjoy Summer Nights on the Lake

Take your boat and a few friends out on the lake, and enjoy fishing, swimming and cruising while watching the sun go down over the water. This simply isn’t easy to do if you don’t live near the water, but summertime near Lake Norman makes this a regular occurrence.

If you don’t own a boat, you can experience the same experiences from the shore. Grab a grill and cook some s’mores while you’re at it! In addition, when you enjoy summers on the lake, you just might find your friends and family want to visit you, rather than asking you to come to them.

Lower Stress and Improve Summertime Health

Did you know that water actually has proven stress-reducing benefits? Your mind enters a mildly meditative state when you are near water. This has been proven with brain imaging scans to show “feel good” hormones flooding the brain when patients are near water. In addition, being outdoors, even if you’re just taking a lunchtime stroll and stepping away from the office for a bit, increases your immune system function! Spending your summers by Lake Norman can actually improve your health and wellness!

Enjoy Lakeside Dining and Shopping

One of the benefits of living near Lake Norman is the number of restaurants and shops that line the lake. Many restaurants feature patios overlooking the lake, making a great place for a summer afternoon lunch. Birkdale Village, an open-air shopping center in Huntersville, has something for everyone’s shopping tastes.

No matter what you enjoy doing during the summer, living near the lake makes it just a little bit more enjoyable. To make the lakeside living experience yours, check out our new luxury apartment community located in Huntersville, NC!
