U.S. National Whitewater Center
An amazing outdoor adventure. A lit of physical activities and some great thrills along the way. Zip lining and white water rafting were our big do's and highly recommend. It's a lot of physical requirement but that's a good thing for us. We wanted some sweaty fun and that's what we got. Highly recommend checking this out. Amazing staff, again...Amazing staff. Awesome people there to help everyone stay safe and have fun.
One of the best places in the Charlotte area. They have something for everyone to enjoy the outdoors. From hanging out in the shade people watching to trail running, mountain biking, zip lining and climbing. Seriously, there's also yoga and kayaking and I could go on. The facilities are well kept and maintained and the trails are well managed. Events (races) are run efficiently and are adorable. Love love love the whitewater center.
Attended the 2-day Whitewater Kayaking 101 course. Had a blast. The instructors are super knowledgeable and very easy to learn from. The instructors created a positive environment where you were free to ask any oar as many questions as you like. They also provided additional instruction one on one to help you get the move or technique down. Looking forward to attending the next phase.
Such a unique place close to the city. I've been going since they opened and have never been disappointed. The live music, race series, water and land activities are all excellent! The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommend the annual parking pass if you plan to come multiple times throughout the year and the annual activity pass if you want try all they have to offer. Can get pretty crowded on the weekends so make sure to plan accordingly. Also a great place to bring your dog.
There is something for everyone at the Whitewater Center! Lots of river activities on land and in the water like walking trails, biking trails, rock climbing, ropes courses, kayaking, paddle boarding, rafting, and so much more. If you like live music and other events, there is some of that, too. There are a few places for food and drinks. The food is fantastic and lots of drink options. In the winter, there is even an ice skating rink. This is a great place to spend time.
