Lake Wylie covers 13,400 acres and has 325 miles of shoreline. The Vineyards sits along nearly one and a half miles of that shore.

Sir Walter Raleigh sent English colonists to North Carolina in 1585 and 1587 to settle Roanoke Island. Permanent settlements were established in 1653, and early conflicts included pirate raids, the Quaker-led Cary Rebellion and the Tuscarora Indian War.
North Carolina didn't see much fighting during the American Revolution, but many residents went out of state to fight. A lot of locals were pro-Union and anti-slavery, but the state joined the Confederacy during the Civil War.
The state is the nation's largest tobacco producer, furniture maker and brick and textile manufacturer. Papermaking, chemicals, and metalworking are important to the state economy, too. Most lithium and mica come from here.
Tourists spend more than $1 billion in North Carolina annually. Sporting options include skiing, golfing and fishing. Major attractions include the Great Smoky Mountains, Cape Hatteras, the Blue Ridge National Parkway, the Wright Brothers memorial, Carl Sandburg's home, and an Old Salem re-creation in Winston-Salem. North Carolina's climate is warm and tropical most of the time, but it can be subject to fierce storms part of the year.
Why Choose a 55+ Community?
Most people who choose to live in a 55+ development are looking for a sense of community with other people of similar backgrounds. Many of these developments are gated and guarded, adding to a sense of security. Often the homes are low maintenance or "lock and leave," giving owners the freedom to do things other than mow the lawn, shovel the snow or replace the roof. The biggest draw is often the amenities, ranging from lavish clubhouses to activity directors and championship golf courses, making some developments akin to country club living (or summer camp for adults). While 55+ communities are not for everyone, they continue to be a popular choice for many people.
