From Charlotte’s greenway system to the NASCAR Hall of Fame and Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, to the Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden and Discovery Place Science, there is plenty to see and do in Charlotte. But, if you’re looking to be a bit more active and adventurous, the U.S. National Whitewater Center is a wonderful place that offers world class whitewater rafting, mountain biking, zip lines, rope and obstacle courses, rock climbing and more. Open 365 days a year, it is fun for the whole family.
For most, the highlight of the center is its whitewater course, an Olympic training center with an artificial series of loops with controlled rapids of various degrees of challenge. Wild rides are led by highly experienced guides who control the intensity of each ride.
Plan to spend the entire day!
