An outdoorsy escape from city life
In Huntersville, nature perseveres, with outdoor attractions inviting visitors to interact with protected wildlife and to explore miles of history-rich trails.
Thanks to fertile acres and a prolific rail line, the charming town of Huntersville, which borders Lake Norman, attracted enough residents to become incorporated in 1873. The Carolina Raptor Center and Latta Plantation Nature Center and Preserve are hallmarks of Huntersville and popular spots for families who appreciate birds of prey and the outdoors. And at Discovery Place Kids–Huntersville, imaginative exhibits and rich play experiences bring learning to life for the little ones. Meanwhile, those craving retail therapy will appreciate the dazzling array of shops at Birkdale Village.
