Fun Day Trips From Charlotte:
It's a great place to take the kids! Lake Jocassee beach is one of our favorites to visit every summer because you look out over the stunning and crystal clear lake.The lake is known for its crystal clear waters that are fed with cool Appalachian waters that fall from dozens of gorgeous waterfalls that are only accessible by boat. It also has a greta beach area. The unusually clear water of Lake Jocassee is a haven for scuba divers and swimmers it's only 3 hours away from Charlotte. The lake is incredible, breath-taking, and stunning. Perfect for your Summer Bucket list & summer outing with the family!
Dupont State Forest
Take the kids to the "Hunger Games" setting. The park offers amazing waterfalls, lakes, and trailsOnly Two hour's and 11 minute away from Charlotte is south of Asheville between Hendersonville and Brevard,This will be a great Spring break or Summer fun Day trip! because we really enjoy waterfalls, easy trail access for the kids and the entire family, and beautiful scenery.
Chimney Rock Park
We really got our batteries charged at Chimney Rock Park with this amazing view and experience! we wanted to end our summer break with a great memory. We took the boys to Chimney Rock. It's 1.5 hours away from Charlotte, and kids under 5 get in for Free. Our four year old was able to go to the top. Kids can enjoy a cool bat cave and a rock tunnel. It's next to lake Lure, so maybe it can be a great day trip during Summer.
