Charlotte offers a multitude of possibilities for vactioning outdoors people in the area. We have the white water center that is on the northern end of Charlotte. it offers a lot of various outdoor activities for the family and is a great palce to go and watch water rafting as you sit at the loca restaurant. Or you can do zip lines and other outdoor activities all within ten to fifteen minutes fo Charlotte. This has become a very popular destination among Charlotte area residents and people coming in ot the area becuase it is also the training facility for the US national olympic team.

You can drive an hour to an hour and half north and be in the beuatiful smokey mountains and sopend a day hiking, camping, or visitng grandfather mountain or the singing bridge which is one mile above water and sings as the wind blows through it. People have spent years going back to the mountains and not have done everything there is to do there; my self included.

Or you can go a couple of hours south and be in Myrtle beach ro any one fo the great beaches on the coast fo South Carolina and North Carolina and soak up rays and play in the ocean....

The possibilities are endless for Charlotte area vactioners to do here. Which was one of the reasons we visited Charlotte on a vacation and elected to move here afterwards...A descsion I made eight years ago and have never regretted.

Oh my gosh, the outdoor possibilities in our area can stagger the imagination!

Charlotte is about 2 hours from the Blue Ridge and Appalachian Mountains to the west, and a similar distance from the gorgeous North Carolina coast to the east. The mountains have more than a couple ski resorts, numerous rivers for fishing, whitewater and flatwater rafting & kayaking, and thousands of miles of trails and national forest. The coastline offers all the waterside activities one could expect, from historic Charleston, SC going north past the breathtaking Outer Banks.

If you're looking for more of a day trip, the US National White Water Center has something for everyone, from whitewater and flatwater boating to zip lines, ropes courses and mountain biking trails! Additionally, both Lake Norman and Lake Wylie are a short drive from central Charlotte and both offer everything from camping and hiking to boating, fishing, swimming and more!

I hope that gives you a helpful overview of our area. If you have specific questions about what Charlotte has to offer, please don't hesitate to touch base. Best of luck with your move to our area!
