Explore Lake Wylie this weekend – If you’re looking for a getaway not too far from the Queen City, Lake Wylie is the perfect location! Explore the town’s history, food, outdoor activities, shopping and much more.
Welcome To Lake Wylie
Lake Wylie borders North and South Carolina, providing easy access for residents in Charlotte, Fort Mill, Tega Cay and Rock Hill. This man-made lake was formed in 1904 and has 325 miles of shoreline. After several changes in power companies and raises in the level of the dam, the lake was renamed Lake Wylie in 1960. The town of Lake Wylie has a population of approximately 8,000 residents. The real draw of this area is the lake, so it’s worth packing a picnic, your sunscreen and even your tennis shoes and spending some time exploring nature in South Carolina while still feeling like you’re close to Charlotte.
