All of the beautiful hardwood trees lining the shoreline of Lake Norman are just beginning to bud but will once again be brilliant shades of green by April. And then come the incredible azaleas!
Davidson College and the Town of Davidson itself is truly a beloved part of life in Lake Norman. The quaint, historic town offers many cultural and natural pleasures from Concerts on the Green, theater/dance and lectures at the campus to their awesome Saturday morning farmers market offering organic produce and meats.
