The Visit to the National White Water Center ~ Charlotte, NC

We took a trip out to the National Whitewater Center, just west of Charlotte, to see what all the fuss was about. This outdoor enthusiasts theme park offers everything for the big kids, including hiking, mountain biking, ziplines, paddle boarding, rock climbing, and of course whitewater kayaking.

Even better, once you’ve had your fill of the sun and fresh air, you can kick back and have great Carolina craft beer while watching others overcome their obstacles and activities of choice.
