First on the agenda should be checking out the self-guided tours of Latta Place. It is an 18th-century working plantation that offers a view into what life was like to live in the early years of the American South. It’s a great learning experience for all ages and you’ll certainly come away having learned a thing or two.
An outdoor spot worthy of your time is Lake Norman, which is the largest lake in the entire state of North Carolina. After Duke Energy dammed the Catawba River in 1963, the created lake formed over 500 miles of shoreline and a surface area of more that 32,000 acres.
Less historical but still full of fun is the recreation park, Discovery Place Kids. There is also the Joe Gibbs Racing Museum, dedicated to teaching everything you could know about racing. These are just some of the things to do while visiting Huntersville. Haning out with the massive and impressive raptors at the Carolina Raptor Center is another great family-friendly activity.
We recommend staying downtown in the beautiful and historic town of Huntersville. Here you’ll find both old school-style homes that date back to the 19th century and modern apartments that feature top-of-the-line amenities while still retaining some rustic charm. If you’d like, stay on the outskirts of town closer to nature and the surrounding state parks.
