Find great things to do with the kids!

Fun things to do in winston salem

Lighthouses, battleships, wildlife, thrilling roller coasters, pirates…and ghosts? Seem like a place your kids will love? Best get to North Carolina pretty quickly then!

This incredible state has SO much to do for kids…here’s why!  How about climbing aboard the historic Battleship USS North Carolina? Kids can experience true history (AND search for those ghosts at the same time!).  There is farm fun with places like Winterpast Farm and Hill Ridge Farms - or perhaps they want some of the BIGGER animals with North Carolina Zoo and the rehabilitative Aloha Safari Zoo.

The whole family can get their big thrills at Tweetsie Railroad or Ghost Town In The Sky (only for those brave outlaws) - oh yes, the pirates! North Carolina Maritime Museums can take kids back to the times of Blackbeard!

There are incredible mines and caves with Gold City Gem Mine and Linville Caverns, and even a swamp! Dismal Swamp State Park will introduce kids to this geological wonder.

We did tell you that North Carolina had great places to visit with kids…now the hard part. What to do first!
