MSN puts Cornelius in ‘Top 10 US Lake Towns’ list

June 21. A new report from MSN/Lifestyle puts Cornelius at No. 5 on the list of 10 best lake towns in the United States. MSN Reporter Clara Appelbaum says Cornelius is an “awesome: lake town:

“For city slickers, Cornelius, North Carolina, is the perfect town to enjoy lake living without sacrificing big city amenities. Located only half an hour from the bustle of Charlotte, Cornelius borders one of the most beautiful lakes in North Carolina, Lake Norman. While you’re there, check out Jetton Park, a beautiful 104-acre park on the lake, or enjoy a cold beer at one of the many local breweries in the area.​”

Jetton Park is free as well: Last night the Mecklenburg County Commission waived weekend entrance fees at their meeting. Olde Mecklenburg Brewing has purchased property in Cornelius and the town is planning a multimillion-dollar arts center in the center of the historic downtown.

“Cornelius in the Top 5 for Best Lake Town!  Not surprizing to those of us who live here.  Our lake shore is pristine, our people friendly, and our Town forward looking.  Just think, soon we’ll have an Arts Center to enhance our region,” said Town Commissioner Jim Duke. He is on the new board helping advise the funding and construction of a visual and performing arts center downtown, just to the west of the Police Station.

Appelbaum also singled out Ass Clown Brewing for​ “its wacky brews like Hibiscus Rose Petal and Star Fruit Tart.”
