Whether you are in South or North Carolina, you can take a day trip through the Carolinas. Each of these scenarios are meant to help you get out of the house and enjoy a day filled with adventure and help you to relax! Which ones sounds more like what you and your family would enjoy doing?
Let’s Go Ziplining & Sliding!
If you want a bit of adventure on your day trip, then head over to Brevard, North Carolina, to go ziplining! From the river to the lush canopy of the trees, this ziplining adventure will be one for the memory books! After your have gotten your thrill on, travel on Highway 276 to Looking Glass Falls which has a natural pool at the base of the waterfall. You can wade in the pool and enjoy the cool waters of the waterfall. Two miles away is Sliding Rock where you have to slide down that smooth boulder. Don’t be surprised if you slide down int more than once!
Highway 64 West
Get your blood pumping in the morning by hiking through Chimney Rock State Park. Let your senses awaken by smelling in the blooming wildflowers and seeing wildlife wake up and take on the day. Next, relax a bit on the shores of Lake Lure and calm your mind as you watch the waterfowl and the green mountains in the background. There is a good chance that you will be hungry after your morning, so head on over to Round Mountain Creamery. They have farm tours and cheese tastings from fresh milk from the dairy goats. Oskar Blue’s Brewery opened up a tasting room in Brevard (original is in Colorado). Stop and enjoy a cold craft beer and a free brewery tour. This day started with a solid hike and ends with a great beer – perfect, if you ask me!
Head to the Beach!
Taking a day trip to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, should be on every road trippers list. Myrtle Beach has 60 miles of sandy beaches where you can go parasailing, beach walking, or head to the boardwalk for some seriously delicious seafood. I’m a big lover of going fishing, so I personally would check on chartering a boat and do a little fishing in the Atlantic Ocean. A day on the ocean is a great way to end a road trip to Myrtle Beach!
