Spring Fever? Here are some things to do around the Charlotte Area!
It’s that time of year – where the spring weather is gorgeous in the southeast and we can’t wait to get outdoors and enjoy it! Looking for some fun things to do in the Charlotte area? Maybe you are looking for some things to do around Sun City Carolina Lakes or the Indian Land area. Here are some of our local favorites…
See the spider lilies at Lansford Canal State Park
These beautiful flowers only bloom once a year – and only in one or two places in the southeast. If you haven’t seen them, you need to add this to your list! Check out the Landsford Canal State Park website for the best time to visit!
Take a walk at Anne Springs Close Greenway.
This fantastic park has walking trails, a summer concert series, and picnic areas. They also offer other activities and special classes in photography, meditation and more! Visit their website for more information.
Pick your own strawberries at Ivy Place Berries on Van Wyck Road
This farm is an easy choice if you live in Indian Land. It is close to home and they have several different varieties of berries. Be sure to check their website before you visit to see what is available. We picked strawberries this past weekend and they were delicious! Don’t want to do the work? No problem – the farm also sells pre-picked berries for your convenience. We liked our berries so much we even made a homemade strawberry cake – drop us a note if you would like the recipe!
Visit the Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden.
This garden is beautiful in spring and it isn’t too hot to walk around and enjoy the grounds! Plan to have afternoon tea while you are there! Or plan your visit around one of their many fun events such as birding walks, a sip and stroll, music festivals, art shows and more! Click here for a full schedule of events.
Go see a Charlotte Knights baseball game!
If you haven’t seen a Charlotte Knights game in their stadium, you are in for a treat. It’s a great afternoon or evening of fun for your entire group! Click here to see when their next home game is scheduled.
Visit the US National Whitewater Center
If you live in the Charlotte area, the whitewater center is the perfect place for a visit in spring. It is unique and there is not another center like it in the entire U.S. If you are a serious outdoorsman, you might enjoy the whitewater rafting, kayaking, ropes challenge courses or ziplines offered at the center. However, if you aren’t up for those activities, the whitewater center also offers flatwater kayaking and canoeing, walking paths, and plenty of space to relax and enjoy watching other visitors try their hand at rock climbing, rafting, and more. The center also boasts great craft brews, several good dining options and evening music and film festivals where you can relax and simply enjoy being outdoors. Check out their website for more information.
