The greatest family-friendly destination is definitely the US National Whitewater Center located a few miles from Charlotte.

There are several trips that you can choose from, depending on how much you weigh or how old you are. There are also difficulty meters so you should choose wisely. We wanted to try out almost everything but we were on a tight schedule so the other adventures had to wait for another opportunity.

Do make reservations in advance, it is much easier to choose a day of your liking.

Address:
5000 Whitewater Center Pkwy, Charlotte, NC 28214, USA

Price:
There are day or seasonal passes.

Opening Hours:
Every day, all day long. Check the website for details.
