My husband had to travel to North Carolina for work for a week, and the girls and I decided to tag along. We used TripAdvisor to find restaurants and things to do around Lake Norman and Huntersville during the day while he was working.
Carolina Raptor Center — It’s rated the #2 thing to do on TripAdvisor. It’s a sanctuary for injured birds. Most of them have damaged wings or eyes that prevent them from hunting and surviving in the wild.
We spent about 2 hours there before we headed to the Equestrian Center, which is also in the Latta Plantation Nature Reserve. You can pet and feed the horses there, plus they had pony rides for $8.
Afterwards, we had lunch at Jason’s Deli (also rated highly on TripAdvisor) and then we headed back to the hotel for some fun in the pool. After my husband was done, we went to Jetton Park (#2 thing to do in Cornelius) and watched the sun go down over Lake Norman.
Stay tuned for more pictures from Day 2 of our trip!
