It’s called the Peachoid, but all it is is a huge water tower just outside Gaffney, South Carolina that only recently came to national prominence. And, it is where our story began.
A little over four months ago we were taking a road trip to Spartanburg, SC to visit the RJ Rockers Brewing company when several friend, most notably my friend Todd, asked me if we had had the opportunity to see the big Peach.
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.
