Best Thing To Show Off To Out-Of-Town Guests

Whitewater Rafting Center

Staff Pick

This oasis for outdoor sports enthusiasts is situated on more than 300 acres along the Catawba River and has the largest multi-channel river in the world — yes, the world. There are also two rock climbing walls and 11 miles of mountain biking trails. And after a day of climbing, boating or biking, you can relax at the Eddy Restaurant and Bar (see also “Best Hamburger” in the Food & Drink section), which boasts an outdoor terrace and provides a great view of the river. There’s even a retail store with all the latest high-tech gear. If your out-of-town guests aren’t impressed, we recommend you send them back to where they came from.
