Fifteen miles outside of Charlotte is Lake Norman, the largest man-made lake in North Carolina. It's a popular hotspot for jet skiers and boaters alike. Spectacular homes line the 500+ miles of shoreline. I saw the lake for the first time from Blythe Landing in Huntersville. In an online search I stumbled upon a site that gives the current water temperature. I wasn't looking for that information, but thought it was interesting none-the-less.
