US National Whitewater Center

     I wanted to write a short blog on one of my favorite places to take an adventure at!  It's the US National Whitewater Center in Charlotte, NC.  Honestly, the place is awesome!!  

     The name makes you think Whitewater rafting, but it's so much more then that.  You can go rafting, kayaking, paddle boarding, mountain biking, hiking, rope climbing, rock climbing, zip-lining and probably more!  All this in one location! 

     There is so much that can be done that you can't do it all in a day. It's truly an adventure that is affordable at $54 for the day.  Where else can you do all that for one price? 

     If you go be prepared to get wet on rafting and wear comfortable cloths for climbing and zip-lining.  They are very safety conscious and you will be wearing lots of helmets and safety harnesses.  Closed toe shoes are a must and preferably not crocks.  They float off while rafting. They also rent proper footwear.

     You can be a nonparticipant and not pay.  You can hang out on the lawn or one of the pavilions.  

     As for food and drink, you can bring your own and eat at any of the external shelters.  You can bring your drinks in.  We keep a cooler in our car.  There are a few food stations and they are priced at a low amusement price. 

    Most activities are included in the price, but there are a few that have equipment rentals, but again the price is beyond reasonable. 

     We drive over 3 hours to get there, spend the day and come home.  It's an awesome day trip if you live anywhere in a close driving distance. I look forward to next year and seeing the new additions they make!
