The US National Whitewater Center is awesome for outdoor adventure with more activities than you can even do in a day! It's also a great place for just hanging out with friends. The food is very good and it's a great place to be outside watching the people,especially the rafters and enjoying the frequently free live music.

This is a phenomenal facility that offers something for everyone. The whitewater rafting is great and fun for the whole family. There are other things to do like a climbing wall, biking and hiking. This is a must if you are visiting in NC or the Charlotte/Asheville area.

I have also utilized this facility to offer team building opportunities to leaders. The Center also has classrooms on site.

My grandchildren from Michigan came to visit me and we all wen to the US National Whitewater
Center. They loved the zip line and rock climbing and I had fun watching and taking pictures.
Didn't go rafting thought the water would be too cold, so maybe on their next visit,

There is so much to do here. Because we live close, we tend to go to the concerts on Thursdays and Saturdays in the late Spring and Summer. I have never had a bad day at the Whitewater Center. Last year my nephews came down for Spring Break and they have't stopped talking about it.

An interesting place to sit out on the terrace and have lunch, take a walk, or raft and kayak! An unusual attraction for Charlotte...
