Charlotte Named Top Adventure City in the South

Posted: November 9, 2012 in news

The Adventure Journal just named Charlotte, NC as one of its “10 Best Adventure Cities.” Here’s what the list said:

Charlotte, North Carolina
The U.S. National Whitewater Center, with its artificial ¾-mile Class II-IV course for kayakers and rafters, and its 14 miles of trails, and its 46-foot outdoor climbing wall, is a big reason to call Charlotte the best adventure city in the south. But its proximity to other rad stuff helps too: It’s two hours from the 100-plus miles of mountain bike trails in not-so-secret-anymore Brevard, three hours from Great Smoky Mountains National Park, as well as two hours from almost every great rock climbing venue in North Carolina: Linville Gorge, Looking Glass, Rumbling Bald, and Stone Mountain. If real whitewater is your think, Charlotte is two hours’ drive from the Nantahala River and a four-hour drive from the legendary Ocoee.

This is awesome news for Charlotte and I wholeheartedly agree that if you need to live in a larger, urban city – Charlotte is a great place.
