Like much of the Carolinas, the majority of the town's residents are between the ages of 22 and 44.
Arguably, the finest Cornelius real estate is located in an area called the Peninsula, an 11 mile stretch of Lake Norman shoreline which is home to only 700 people. Though the residential area was recently built in the 1990s, it was built with a timeless tradition and a sensibility that ensures that it will be a desirable location for many years to come. The Peninsula features its own sailing fleet, as well as many community social opportunities including book clubs and dinner clubs. Beautiful homes in a community with the timeless values of yesteryear - that's exactly what The Peninsula offers.
Part of the Peninsula includes the Peninsula Club, a spectacular private golf course and tennis facility set on Lake Norman. A 35,000 square foot clubhouse serves every imagined need of members, and provides opportunities for fantastic meals and abundant social opportunities. Even if an exclusive golf club isn't your preference, you can find many opportunities to play on stunning courses in the Cornelius area.
A valued part of the Cornelius community is Davidson College, one of the top four-year liberal arts colleges in the country. Approximately 1,700 students attend the school and provide the Cornelius community with athletic teams to support, athletic facilities to enjoy and concerts and speakers that enrich and educate as they entertain. A recent highlight, for example, was a performance on campus by the world renowned Royal Shakespeare Company.
