Now that the Olympic athletes who trained there are gone, head to the U.S. National Whitewater Center for Zipline & Dine, new this summer. Two hours of zip-lining through the trees along the Catawba followed up by a delicious dinner with craft beers and wine around a roaring fire pit. This weekend is the Whitewater River Jam Presenting Uncorked on August 11 and the 2012 Trail Run Challenge is on August 18.
If you live in an apartment in Charlotte, NC and you have not been to The U.S. National Whitewater Center, you are missing out. This is an outdoor recreation facility set on the banks of the Catawba River featuring over 400 acres of woodlands, home to the world's largest recirculation river, 14 miles of biking, hiking and running trails, and one of the world's largest outdoor climbing facilities.
The best way to enjoy it is with an AllSport Pass. With one Pass you can do whitewater rafting, climbing, flatwater kayaking, whitewater kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, mega zip, climb 2 zip, adventure course, canyon crossing, eco trekking and mountain biking all day long!
