Heading north again I-77 in Charlotte area suggestions

Anyone have any good suggestions on the I-77 corridor going through North Carolina? We will probably stay a week on our way back north in about a month.

I can answer this, let me see if I can get this Google Map thing to work…

That is directions to Lake Norman Motorcoach Resort which is probably one of the more interesting places to stay. It is close to all the food/shopping on I-77. The resort is really nice, right on Lake Norman. You an even rent a boat!

I know the area well so let me know if you are looking for something else.
