We visited the Catawba Cultural Center in Rock Hill. The Center boasts gorgeous trails that lead right to the river which is often used by the Catawba people. The scenery was breathtaking and serene. I hated to leave. So beautiful.

Where is flows into Lake Wylie is the best part. But up-river there are a few watering holes (no! I mean restaurants/bars!) that are quite nice.

Ranged from average to real good. Like any other restaurants, some days better than others. Overall fine. As to the Catawba river itself, what else can I say, "It's a river."
