Here are a couple things to do in Mooresville:

QUEEN’S LANDING – 1459 River Hwy, (704) 664-2628

LAKE NORMAN’S Fun, Waterfront entertainment center. Located about 30 minutes north of Charlotte and you can tie up by boat or drive up by car! There is a Floating Dock Bar and Jack’s Lakeside Grill offers a variety of lunch specials. If it’s done being remodeled, you can play mini golf or bumper boats. Casual lunch cruises on The Catawba Queen,a replica Mississippi River Boat. The cruises are about 1 and 1/2 and there is a full bar. There is also a romantic 2 ½ hour dinner cruise on the “Lady of the Lake”, a 90 ft luxury yacht, is fully air-conditioned and heated, with 2 full service bars. I’d make a reservation if I were you!
