Mooresville isn’t just a great place to live and work. When you are hosting an event in Mooresville, you can be sure that your guests will be entertained because of all that is available for people of all ages. For wedding parties, it’s good to think about what all of your out-of-town guests are going to do to keep themselves occupied while you are prepping for the ceremony. For meetings, it never hurts to get out of the board room. When you find yourself in my great little town, here are my top ten spots to hit when someone asks you what there is to do!
10. When you want to shop
Merino Mill: The sheer size of this place is enough to make the shopper in you jump for joy. You could spend an hour here or an entire afternoon. Check out all things for the home at Merino’s Home Furnishings or Main St. Antiques & Design Gallery. When hunger sets in, step on down to the newest pizza place in town and get your grub on at Alino Pizzeria. Grab a cold one and your pizza is ready in 90 seconds flat. No really.
9. When you want to drink
Lake Norman Brewing Company: Blondes, Ambers, Wheats, IPA’s… you name it. Lake Norman Brewing Company is a great spot to entertain your out-of-town guests. Plus it’s family and dog friendly!
8. When you want to get back to get rustic
Carrigan Farms: April through November, Carrigan Farms is a great place to bring your family for a unique experience! They have hay rides, strawberry picking and other in-season crops, and haunted trails in October.
7. When you want to be near water
Queens Landing: So you’ve brought your guests to Mooresville and you dont want them to leave without seeing the beauty of Lake Norman, right? Queens Landing has everything you need to entertain your friends and family before your wedding ceremony. Take a cruise around the lake on the Catawba Queen, a Mississippi Riverboat.
6. When you want to play
Hope Park: The place for your kids to get their energy out. As a mother of two wild little monkeys, i’m always looking for ways to expel every last drop of energy they have. Hope Park near the Lowes YMCA is a wonderful and safe place for kids of all ages. There is a splash pad that runs during the summer so don’t forget their swimmies and a towel.
5. When you want to race
GoPro Motorplex: This is a thrilling outing for a wedding party or co-workers. With their arrive-and-drive packages, they make it super simple to get on the fast track. Hold on to your hats though because your going to reach speeds up to 55mph.
4. When you want to go “natural”
Lake Norman Jet Ski Rentals: There is no better way to experience the beauty and fun of Lake Norman than on a pontoon boat, jet ski, or my personal favorite… a kayak. Don’t forget your sunscreen!
3. When you want to relax
LangTree Lake Norman: I really love all the great restaurants and hot spots going up here. Plus there is a Summer Concert Series planned. This will be where I spend many summer nights… I have a feeling.
2. When you want to step back in history
Welcome Home Veterans Living Military Museum: A gathering place of veteran’s of all ages. Stop by and grab a cup of coffee and check out the amazing memorabilia that has been collected over the years!
1. When you want to Total Mooresville Experience
Downtown Mooresville Shops and Restaurants: No, this is not number one because I work in Downtown Mooresville…. and practically live in Downtown Mooresville. This is my #1 because of the restaurants, the unique stores and shops, the special events, and the friendly faces. Drive down Main Street any day of the week and you will see so much going on. Sit outside to people watch and you’re likely to see a wedding processional or a pop up jam band.
Have a wonderful event!
