From pure fun, to educational attractions, Charlotte has a ton of fun places to go with kids! This Southern belle is a city that knows how to play. It sizzles in summer and dazzles in winter, so you'll always have a choice of places to visit!
To beat those winter blues, indoor reigns supreme! Discovery Place is waiting for you, with it’s fun interactive science exhibits, or perhaps the Charlotte Nature Museum takes your fancy with it’s slower paced activities.
Summer time blues? We don’t think so! Not with the U.S National Whitewater Center with the largest man-made whitewater river in the world, or the “thrill capital of the Southeast” - Carowinds has thrill rides that send you 300 feet in the air!
Of course, what would a trip to Charlotte be without history? Charlotte was the site of the nation’s first gold rush, so places like Reed Gold Mine celebrate it’s rich past.
Special mention goes to Charlotte for attractions such as ImaginOn or Reedy Creek Park because, well, they’re free!
Bravo, Charlotte. A true Southern family experience!
