Air Travel and Other Transportation

Our location in the Tar Heel state gives us unlimited accessibility. Interstates 77 and 85, which intersect in Charlotte, link the city with the Great Lakes region, New England and Florida. Interstate 40, running coast-to-coast across the United States, is only a half hour north. Upcoming improvements on US-321 will permit another direct route for western Lake Norman residents to reach Interstates 40 and 85.

A two hour journey to the west of the lake takes you to the Blue Ridge Mountains; a four hour trip to the east, to the Atlantic beaches. Within an hour’s drive east of Charlotte are some of the world’s best golf courses in Pinehurst. Air travel in the area is serviced by Charlotte Douglas International Airport, which is only a thirty minute drive. There are also several regional airports around the lake area. 

Bus travel in the area is provided by the Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS) for commuters and Greyhound also has a terminal in Charlotte. Charlotte is also serviced by Charlotte Trolley, Inc., an organization dedicated to returning electric streetcar operation to the streets of Charlotte.
